cute little chevy

i started off with a completly stock 1977 chevy and was thinking of just doing a small lift with a road tire and keeping the diffs what i ended up doing was a full axle swap with crossover steering dana 60 front and 14 bolt ff rear with a detroit no spin locker. this build could not have been done with out the help of one of my best friends troy. the guys one of the youngest yet most talented fabricators i know he did all the fabwork on the truck and made it happen while i was at work he was working on the truck i cant thank him enough and would recommend him for anybody looking for custom work done to a truck. heres the pics:

Stance looks to be spot on. Did you have to get longer drive shafts? and what about brake line lengths?
