Very cool shots! Looking forward to seeing more!
Beautiful shots of Rome, and with your pickup even better, great stuff....Jim
Thank you so much Jim,
Thanks to all .
Soon new shots
Very nice pictures Frank, I imagine it is a dream come true, congratulations. I'm glad I followed your thread since the beginning. Very very nice!
Can you post a picture at ride height please?
Thank you so much Fernando, soon I'll do a photo at ride height.
Hello guys ,
more shots for you,
Sunday morning was a beautiful sunny day
Way cool almost surreal to see.
I bet if you just parked it there more people would be checking out the truck then the ancient sites!
there is some many real cool details on your car ...
Fantastic, the best of both worlds united!
Wow! I will add my "Nice Truck" to all of the other comments.
Frank yo did some fantastico work there and I even like the color
thanks for sacrificing your sleep to bring us these awesome pics. does Italy not care about the california plates or do you have locally issued plates you carry with you in case they are needed?
great pics, great truck and great build. maybe you could give the pope a spin around the block.
Many thanks Dwaynerz .
I have Italian licence plates, the California plates only for the pics....unfortunately .
Thank to all
Very nice build, makes me just want to go and work on one of my projects! Really dig the choice to paint it white.
Clean looking truck.
Fantastic shots and outcome! Love the old city as a backdrop. That color really fits with all the aged marble.
great workmanship !
Have read this whole thread a few times and the quality of your work is amazing, would love to see this in real life, I'm in Rome in September and if there's any chance of you letting me have a closer look that would be great.
Simply amazing work mate! Well done
Thank you so much Barclay.
Let me know when you are in rome , we meet, it will be a pleasure for me.
Thanks to all
I have read this again and I am more inspired each time. This is money well spent. Great build, great thread and wonderful pictures. Now all there is to do is drive the wheels off of it. Love this truck.
Many thanks Tolo
I must confess that it is very pleasant to drive,
I tried to run a little bit and I did not imagine it could get very easily to 120 mls/h, then I had a fear because of the tires (the speed limit is just
over 90 mls).... then I let the throttle pedal .
I'm happy to have inspired you, good job
your truck is just to awesome man. i love how your bed came out, how far does your angle strips stick out? when you lift the bed they dont rub on the paint it looks like.
Thanks mate, I will arrive in Rome 10th September and leave on Thursday of Friday to travel to sorrento to my sisters wedding
Hi, I'm sorry for delay.
from the angle strips to the bedsides there are about 8 mm per side from the head of the bolts of the fender and do not touch the paint.
Perfect, see you soon.
Wow.....Very Cool! Reminds me when I lived in Sicily... only cleaner. Brings back some great memories....Keep up the good work!
Thank you so much .
Wow! your truck came out beautiful, great job and nice photos! They really capture the vibe. Congrats
I just read every page of this thread and loved every minute of it! You should be extremely proud!
Wow! I was in Italy a while back and ran into this one. Sorry we did not get to meet. Your Truck is Fantastic!
Thank you so much my friend, will be for the next time .
Thanks to all for the compliments
