WOW! Thats alot of work. I like those subtle changes that make you look twice to see what is different. What color is it going to be?

Planning on a 2 tone with turqoise on bottom and a classic white on top.

I just reread that and just to clarify anything less than a 2" z would be silly...
Since you went 2", you might can notch it and it work, but have a spare on hand.  Joints are less intrusive.  Are you going to be bagged?

Fantastic job with the Mods so far!! 8)  Doors look like they need a pair of Chris' one piece glass kits though ;D.

I sectioned the fender 1 7/8" so that the front fender and rear fender are the same height.

I like the detail you're putting in.  Both the fender and tailgate will have MANY people scratching their heads wondering whats different.  I love those kinds of things.  Looks like good quality work!   keep em comin man!

Thanks for the encouragement guys. Don't expect progress to be to fast though because as you can see I don't have a shop so I am at the mercy of the weather and it's starting to get pretty cold out.
