Frige, what did Chevy call this color? School bus yellow comes to mind, but was it something like "Indian sunset"? I seem to remember that...
Thx

Well finally got to do a little more work on the truck. I have been working on the bed. Built the wheel wells and started fitting the fenders.
Image
I have some wheels and tires laying around so I checked to see how they fit. Not too shabby...

If anyone is interested I am probably going to sell the Ls engine. I feel it is to nice to waste by putting in the truck and putting turbos on it. 2014 l83 with the 6 speed auto. Low mileage, 380 hp on e85, really nice setup.
