Just sharing some pics of my completed project. No Limit Engineering chassis, LS3, TKO600, 304SS exhaust, LED lights throughout, Chevy suburban seats, New Vintage gauges, Pioneer 6200 stereo, Hertz speakers, and smoothie bumpers to name a few upgrades.

Wow! Thanks for sharing. How long did your project take? There is a LOT of work in all of those photos.

What are those seats? Are they custom or are they from something else?

Edit: derp. Reading is hard. How is the height on them?
