    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!

    Hi Salty,

    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


    Frank

    Hello guys,

    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

    In the meantime, I allowed myself a dream I had for years, a Harley Davidson 2009 Road King

    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.

    Thanks
     
  17. It's looking great and really coming together now!
    Did you ever get the windshield issue figured out?

    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.
