    Here's the last update: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=128301

    We didn't do a whole lot this time, we didn't have much time to work on it, but we got the rear centered, and mounted.

    We also got the body back on temporarily so we could mock up some more things, and took the door latches out to soak them in vinegar and rebuild them.

    Hmm..maybe its my computer. Wierd. Well it's a highboy now..but it will be channeled over the frame. Just haven't gotten to that point yet. Its gonna be channeled but unchopped. It does look cool the way it is though. wish I could see the pics.

    What do you mean Grinder? That shop is clean! The water comes in one side, and washes out the other. Besides that's about two grinding disks worth of residue on the floor!

    What have you been up to?

    You might want to invest in a flash though.
     
  8. That looks like your truck is bleeding rust on the floor. hahaha When you going to wheel on over here with it so I can see it?

    That WAS with the flash! If I use the "night" setting, the shudder stays open too long, and it's all washed out and blurry, and I'm too lazy to lighten them up before posting!

    And...it was almost dark when I took them!

    I was trying to have it done before the NSRA show....but life gets in the way, (and back-ordered parts), so I'm not sure now....

    Are you coming to the Nats this year Grinder?

    I know, right?

    Follow the links back to the mock-up thread, and see how much that thing dropped...Like 10 inches at the back of the bed!
