    I bet that's light. It'd be a shame to cover it with paint.

    Sweet truck. It reminds me of the aluminum truck Boyd had the DeLays build for him about 10 years ago. I think they were originally from Sweden also. You Sweedish guys know your stuff. Subscribed.

    Yes, the aluminum truck Boyd build was a favorit! So I had the truck in my mind during this build!
    But not trying to copy it!

    Dude, I would not give two $hits if you copied it! Your work and skills are next to nothing! You are seriously talented. I am still scratching my head, ass and everything in between over the fact that you're 20 friggin' years old! I starting to think you were born FROM an English wheel. There really is no explaining that kind of inherent talent. Damn gifted brother!;)

    You sir have some talent! So what's your plan with the body? Are you planning on polishing it when done or doing a brushed finish? Keep the updates coming and keep up the good work.

    My father gave me my first English wheel when I was 16 years, from there two Lazze courses, and learning my self for about three years!

    Fantastic skills. Any idea what it weighs? And will it trip red light sensors?

    This truck was originally going to be a roadster or a tub, Dick Brogdon=Boyd's original foreman asked a pal if he had a cowl that Boyd
    could borrow for this build. His pal asked for one of mine, It was a 29
    closed cab p/u. No wood in it but still very sound. I lent it to them twice,
    each time I had to deliver it @ no compensation.

    The 1st time it came back fine, the 2nd it did not! Sometime in the build, they liked the look of a 29 cc cowl, but liked the rear cab of a 30/31.
    I go to see the progress at Marcel's and I'll be damned if the hinges for me doors weren't just sawzalled off and thrown in the seat riser area, They even cut into the A-pillar area! This saved them a ton of labor not having to make a buck,Will cost me to fix it.

    Marcel's wouldn't fess up to it, nor would Boyd. I was pissed! this cab still sits on then back of my BB along with a 28 CC, that needs work. These were to be shop trucks for Paul & Jim @ Cook's to advertise the shop and Cyclone.

    When I went to pick up my cab from Boyd's Orangethorpe address I loaded the cab in the bed of my 1/2 ton Chev shortbed p/u. I liked the project, didn't like what had happened to my cab. I did notice that they changed from one aluminum frame to a sleeker one, I took the original and still have that,but before I got it they sawed the front x-member out it.

    I learned to never make a deal with Boyd right then and there, and then "Avoid The Boyd". He sure did align himself with talented individuals that maintained his place in Hot Rod History.

    Alumatruck,
    Great job on the work performed so far, don't forget the wide bead line that is on the door and rear cab corners. Be proud=Killer Work!

    I really like the angled window and chop. It reminds me of an old racer i used to see at union grove in the early 70's.
