    Finally got the look I have been going for almost dialed in. Dropped the rear another 1.5" by fabbing up some rear blocks. Definitely need to C notch the rear now but I was planning to anyway. Spent a couple hours the other night working on the body panel gaps now that the new cab mounts are constructed. For the first time since I have had the truck I can now open the doors without them catching on the fenders and hood closes square. The front cab mounts were so rotted that it was leaning forward and causing everything to bind up. Also laid down some gloss black on the steelies.

    Next on the list is to modify the bellhousing for a T5 trans, then a driveshaft, and recover the seat. At that point I will just drive the truck how it is for awhile and enjoy it.

  4. Nice stance!
     
  5. I would like to see more of the cab mounts if you have more pics. Mine are rusted through as well, and I am not thrilled about the prospect of buying new ones.

    I don't care what anyone says about how ugly the 57 body style is, the long bed 57 f100 is one of my favorite trucks of all times. I plan on building one some day. Good work.
     
  7. Ummmm Ugly????? Really????? Look to the Weesner painting for inspiration. How could anybody think those trucks are ugly??
