Thanks, it was fun to take it out. I had to adjust the TV cable a bit and adjust the steering box. Much better now. I had to swap the prom back to stock because the one I got is a dud. I still haven't finished buffing it out and I still have to finish the inside of the bed otherwise she's good to go.

The wheels are restored, painted, cut and clear coated. They are one of my favorites.

Got some finish work done in between a zillion other projects, including clearing the front lot which is why there are logs everywhere.

Truck looks great.
Clearing the front lot, hmmnm, is someone building another garage?

VB I have to say you have a great eye for detail.

The contrast of color and black are stunning and really make it pop.

'Nice Job' falls far short of the obvious effort put into your 'mutt project'. Well done!!!

Now, can we see the interior please...?

That's the plan! Make way for more shop space. I anticipate it will take at least 3 years before I can start building though. First step is clearing all these bloody trees.

Thanks, I think the orange/black and black chrome look worked out nicely on this truck. If time permits I'll be bringing it to a car show soon. Interior pics are a few pages back http://forum.73-87chevytrucks.com/smforum/index.php?topic=6233.390
