i dont think they make pre wrapped frames for a g-body, i know they have some for impalas. but it might be a lil' cheaper to buy some metal, make ur templates, and take all the materials to a local welder and have them cut and weld ur frame up. they charge by the hr. so thats why i say to have ur templates already made that way it will save u money.

hell, i had over 200 hours in my frame by the time i finished it.....a welder usually charges 10- 15 $ an hour.....i guess that comes out right, about $2000-$2500.....but you would still have to buy the metal and frame.........

im not talkin bout a full frame, just stress points, enough reinforcements so he wont fuck up his frame, rear humps, a-arm section, ect. and also i dont think he's aiming for molded show quality frame.

just remember everyone......anything you don't reinforce becomes an EXTREME weak point in your frame!!........

plently of people have minor reinforcements and hit 40"+ and their shit is just fine. u dont nessesarly(sp) have to have a fully wrapped frame. a partial wrapped frame will work. im got a partial wraped frame and im gonna be hopping the hell out of my car. and if my frame for any reason, happens to break or crack, then i'll get another frame fully wrapped, but i doubt it.
