    My buddy next door helped stick the front end back on so I could get a pic of the entire truck.I hate that I chipped the bondo off the door guess it was hit at one time and the repair is really bad just makes me want to get the door skin on faster i guess.

    Thanks the rear was centered on the original placement of bump stop then ended up 1/4 back from there front is moved forward about 1 1/4 .

    Threads like Rynos 61 build and advise and more resent flatout65s build of his 61 uni and advise is a huge help on decision making and placement of parts.

    Thanks guys it took me years to get another project truck glad I did now the hard part is making it run and drive lol.

    When I got the truck someone along its life had replaced the front cab mounts and just put them back where the cab had settled over the years so the front fenders has some gap at the bottoms with no way to adjust it out so I cut out a section of the front of the frame where the core support mounts to give me some adjustment room.

    Thanks not sure almost everyone really likes the color it is now.

    leave it the stock color but with a white top maybe with some kind of pearl or white flake or pearl.

    Or just leave it like it is but fix the rust holes spot it in put some pinstripes on it.
