doors assembly today.....
I have installed outside SS molding and handles
Looks Killer.....cant wait to see it on the road
Love it brother....(Hmmmmm gonna have to figure out if I can finess a set of window chromes on my chopped up AD)
arrived this morning. Mark Bedsides, Usa made !!!
Some minor modifications, painting, and assembly Bed
I put the wax spray in the doors
I used Mar-K bed parts as well, they were super nice and yes USA!! Cant wait to see this thing done man.
Thank you so much. Still 6 mounths
I was thinking of mounting tires L78-15 but under the rear fender there is enough space so ride on G78-15
As usual....looks awesome Orula!
That said....what is this wax spray inside of the doors that you speak of? Never heard of it and if I need it I'll steal the idea!
this is Cavity Spray -Protects vehicle cavities from interior rusting.
One pack is enough for both doors and other hidden parts of the cab.
I hope I have been of help .
Thanks for the compliments
Coker tires G78-15 arrived today and since it is my job
I plugged them right away, I was eager to see how they were
Wheel Vintiques 15x6" front, 15x7" rear, bullet center caps
In the meantime, I allowed myself a dream I had for years, a Harley Davidson 2009 Road King
Wow...white and chrome is so clean looking! I cant wait to see this all put together and a full shot of the truck. STUNNING.
Wow that looks good. I may have missed it, but what are your plans for the floor of the bed? Oh, btw, can you pull a few bucks of your money tree? I need to order some truck parts but with Christmas coming up, you know....ha!!
Hi Shadams, thanks
Perhaps you mean the boards to the floor? These are oak from Classicparts.
I hope to install everything before Christmas
What I mean is your frame kicks up above where the stock bed floor was, and your angle strips are pre-installed in the stock location. Are you going to pull them and raise the floor up above the frame and rear air hardware? Its probably a dumb question anyway, I dont know how else you would do it...
I understand now .
The plan will be raised with a double frame, as you will soon see.
It's looking great and really coming together now!
Did you ever get the windshield issue figured out?
I can't believe the detail that has gone into this build. It's absolutely stunning. I'm so impressed with the work. GREAT JOB!
Orula, I just read your entire thread and you have great style , an eye for detail and are a true craftsman. What did you end up finding with the windshield glass? I saw a few posts back that it was installed complete. Keep up the great work, you are an inspiration for me to get mine going forward.
Thank you so much, I'm trying to do my best
the problem of the windshield has been solved, more forward will tell you how I did it.
I'm really honored. Soon I will return to speak of the windshield
but now it's ok.
Many many thanks
Frank, Truck looks great..
Only 10 trucks in Italy you have best one...
today me and my daughter we washed the new tires and I took the opportunity to take some pictures
A further 5 months of work I should do it .... I have to do it, there is an important pre '65 car show in May
Never hurts to start them young in the car world. Your truck in looking just super, can't wait to see it all finished....Jim
That truck is just plain bitchin.
I can't believe you built that in Italy.
Frank your truck is "BAD ASS"
