Default BURT Update

Hi all,
Ive made some progress on the BURT (Big Ugly Red Truck) project. The new chassis is almost ready, and Ive attached a few pictures.
Ive got a bit of suspension work to do, and then ready to shorten the frame and replace the body.

Default End of year update

HI all, sorry for the long gap in postings. Finally had time to get back to BURT. Attached are a couple of pictures of the body roughly sitting on the frame. About to make a few minor modifications to level things out and then build the body mounts. I've added a picture of the engine bay to show that the V10 will actually fit!

Id appreciate input on "appropriate" wheel and tire size!

Still having issues with Pictures showing up, so i followed the advice of others here and posted to IMGUR. Links below show body sitting on frame on the mounts, and location of brake master cylinder.
