    Interesting cab, never saw one like that. A lot of cars were made in to pickups over the years, looks fairly well done.

    waiting on parts so i figured I'd address the conundrum of the missing visor
    found this drug testing sign that was liberated from a group of rowdy drunken bikers
    they are some of the best people...fit in place real good so a few screws and some flat black and dun is dun

    waiting on the new rubber .. on the way but stuck some where in frozen Texas .. in the mean time replaced the wood in the bed. could have gone and got nice new planks but no...found some ready willing and eager weathered 4x4s in my own back yard. ripped them down to size add some carriage bolts and dun .. had 2 hooks and some rusty chain and the bed gait is good to go!
