    Thanks Smokey,

    I installed a gasket Counterparts because with Rubber Steel I did not feel well.
    However, I put the rubber in boiling water to soften it and it was all easier.

    That is a beautiful ride mate,Job well done
     
  12. I admit that in the beginning I thought you had bought a very nice truck and felt you should drive it as is. then you starting buying tons of parts. my thoughts were something like "another 1-800- check book build" I can not imagine what the bottom line is.
    I now eat my words, fantastic build. you stuck with it to the finish and I have never seen a better detailed AD truck here in the states and must be ten times harder across the pond
     
  13. Beautiful job on the truck - I will have to stop by and make a visit when I'm next in Rome visiting my cousin .....

    For crying out loud that is bad ass.....cant wait to see full on pics, maybe by the Colosseum (yea I know, cliche, but I am not all that traveled in Italian landmarks)

    Tell you what, get me a pic of your truck by the Colosseum and when mine is done I'll get you a pic of mine by the Alamo!! Haa!

  29. Nice Work Orula!
    The pickup has turned out very nicely, I bet you're proud of all the hard work you've put in to it.
    Awesome photos against the Italian country side, it looks like a great place to cruise, I'm jealous!
    Thanks for letting us watch all this and please keep us updated.

    You might have to change that avatar picture now too....
