    Come on...is this guy for real??? I mean this in the nicest way possible...you make me sick.;) The whole time I'm reading this build I'm thinking to myself is this guy for real?? I think I'm just gonna sell my project and give up now. You are literally the metal surgeon. I'd never paint anything if I were you, clear coat...that's it. Wow.

    Chassis in process off assembly.Bed in paint and polished.The Blue that was chosen by Pepsi bottling plant is a loud ,metallic with a tint of purple.The owners wanted the truck to be loud rather than the
    original solid Pepsi blue.
    Tom Hardy (HardysmodelA) here on thehamb is lead assembly on the truck and he's doing a fine job!

    wow beautiful work on the truck ,
     
  19. Looks like a great colour.
     
  20. Perfect fitment on those body parts! Those lines just flow from one area into another. That is going to be one class act when done!
     
  21. Beautiful build!
     
  22. Cool to see the color stage beginning after all your hard work. :)
