I just finished assembling a '85 K100RT as a bone stock unit from a drop & slide incident. Only body work required (17 pieces!). Its' stock characteristics remind me why the LT became LTX. The LTXs' only downside is the lack of a 6th gear or lower rear end ratio. I wish I could drop the rear to about 2.75-2.80 and spread the trans ratios to accomodate, but I'm not a good enough machinist to make tranny gears. I wouldn't even try for a 6th.
