    It's cool! I just have seen it right after you posted it.

    How'd it go from a wrap around rear window to a small window? Give on the details!

    One more. Fresh out of high school with no money but I stuck it out and did every single thing myself, paint, wiring, upholstery. Kinda impressed my dad who thought I'd never get my shit together. Took me a year and my new bride never bitched a single time that I can remember. Just celebrated our 44th anniversary and shes still putting up with me. Go figure. image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg

    You did some nice work rigth there. But I think that's a very nice front end on that truck stock, and I'm not a fan of the naked front end.
    With that skill set, you should be capable of building a car front out of them front fenders.

    But nice metal finish.
    Always nice to be nice, and farther and son build is a great idea!

  28. rat nest & mold as found.
    1st as found a couple years back and the 2nd in my 2 car garage work shop? It is far from done but making progress slowly. Hell I was 80 when I started two years ago & they only let me out every 6 months to work on it.
