NOT slamming you by any means, so don't take this the wrong way!I didn't keep track of the hours I spent, It was too many to ever come out ahead if I ever sell it. I've never seen a L96/6L90E swap in a GMT800 & I thought it would be cool.....And it is in my opinion.
I've put @ 100 miles on it, Needs tires, Front suspension work & Brakes. The truck will be painted before any of that gets done.
It's getting a GMT900 front brake conversion using Powerstop components & Replacement Powerstop on the rear.
But why would you get it painted, before all the mechanical work is finished?
Just more chances on getting a new paint job scratched.
