    Luckily, all that work I'm posting was done just before I broke my arm. It's been sitting waiting for me the last 3 months. My arm is almost healed, and I just started the reassembly last week. :D

    Thanks, Curt!
     
  3. Very cool build Keith! Thanks for the build thread.

  4. Can't wait to see the pics of it painted! Curious if everything is one color or if the body and cage is different. Patiently waiting........:D

    Thanks, but the progress and pace haven't been that good. This has been over a 5 month time from the start to what you see so far. I'm jJust finally getting the pics posted.

    Couple of final paint pic's, sorry for the phone picture quality.

    This is the last of what I have shots of, but I started re-assembly last week and will get more pictures as it goes together...

    Too funny...what a small world!
    Did it originally come from Nebraska, because there was an old plate and stock hanger bracket in with a bunch of parts that were in the seat riser?
    It went from NH to Mass where a guy and his son started to work on it, but it was obviously more than they were ready for, based on what they had done.

    Thanks, Mat!

    I followed your p/u build thread, you did an awesome job...love your truck!!! :cool:
     
  14. Looks outstanding so far.

    Another question....on the rear of the cab where the bars got thru the cab, are you going to install any grommets around the bars to seal the penetration? I'm thinking about making aluminum plates around mine and compressing a rubber bushing between them. Just a thought.

    The body is mounted solid to the frame, and is also welded all the way around every bar that goes through in the rear and also the two in the front...no grommets needed! haha

    I had planned on going, but was sick as a dog. Haven't been sick like that in years, but finally coming back around.
    Missed seeing you guys...how was the turnout?

    Thanks...I'm pretty excited to finally be moving in. Lot's to do before I can get back on the P/U!
