Love what you've done.
That rules. Yeah when I looked at the cost to do stock replacement pans and it only made sense for me to put in a little more time and save a lot of money. Working with the S10 was fairly easy and parts availability is awesome. But I think down the road I will end up building another frame. There's a few changes I would like to make to it. But for now I can at least drive and enjoy it. I'll build up the other frame and swap everything over when it's done.
