    The truck was at Custom Car Revival 2014.
    Did anyone get any pics of it?
    Thanks,
     
  2. Lee Pratt pick, WOW, he's got the eye. His cars have always been some of my very favorites. From the 41 Buick and early 50s Chevy to his Nomad.

  4. I have become so accustomed to looking at the modified version, I had to go back and look at post #1 to remind myself that these never looked so very cool...

    BigRedTodd,
    Thanks for the side by side pictures. Really makes you stop and say WOW!!! Kinda like watching a child grow day by day - sometimes you forget what the original version looked like and just how much change has occurred.

    Made new panels for the front fenders to fill in where the seams were at. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1403926396.795467.jpg
    Welded it all in.

    Wow, all that work and 99.5% of people won't even notice the changes!! Honestly, there are several that I would not have ever seen had I not see it in this thread.... Or the truck sitting next to a stocker!

    Mad skillz!

    Well I stood and studied the truck quite a bit this last weekend at Salina and I got to say that it is amazing. It's done so good that you don't even know what was stock and what's not! The work is that good... Just better!!
    Awesome job man!!

    I'm kind of hoping he never paints it. It would be a shame to cover up that sheet metal work.

    Yes I went to Salina Kansas for the KKOA show. Had a great time while I was there. Custom legend Merle Berg gave me an award for my truck a handmade trophy he made. Very cool.

    I am here today at the street rod nationals in Louisville Kentucky. I am set up in the exposition hall. So if you'd like to check the truck out stop by and say hello.

  20. Thanks for the update Jimmy! If you were ever so inclined it would be great to see a little write up describing your metal finishing techniques.

    Jimmy has been a busy man lately. He's is working on the Aluminum interior panels. A lot of metal shaping in these panels. Its a shame to cover the panels up. You will be amazed!!!!!!!
