    About year & a half ago I bought this nearly complete 84 2WD RC Prospector II
    I bought it for the rolling frame,gas tank,etc & the 4 1/2" pattern turbine wheels
    The firewall & floor pan is going in my CrewCab with buckets & consoles front & rear

    A day or two after the above picture it looked like this

    Then winter came & spring left & two weeks ago it looked like this after working a little on it a little

    My goal is to take the crossmember from this frame & melt it together with the frame of my RC in my sig & gain another 2 3/4" of drop in the front

    Separating the crossmember from the frame rails took some flamewrenching & hammering

    That's cool, one day I hope to drop a Hemi in my D150. But for now it's all about getting low.
