    I lied! It's not finished, The trimmer could not do the roof lining before xmas so that and the floor mats still has to be done. Any way another couple of pics. A good mate of mine who was banned from the hamb for being naughty did the tin work inside.

    Yep, it's got clear plastic hose on them now, but the trimmer will make some covers for them.

    Nice truck! I would love to hear / see more about the disc brakes you hid in the wide 5 drums and backing plates.

    Got adapters from Dick Spadaro just before he passed away. He was great to deal with. and local hot rodder here,Phil Pavicich laser cut the slotted covers to cover the discs. You can still see the calipers, but I painted it all satin black which disguises them a bit. Phil also machined the '36 hubs. They almost look like drums at first glance.

    For those who don't know aussie oldie's history here are a couple of his previous rides from his drag racing days.
    The Fiat was originally raced as "Bad News" before becoming the "Pig"
    img039.jpg
    Stampede was originally raced by Charlie Denis as seen in this shot before Phil purchased it
    Stampede 1.jpg
    And here he is burning a bit of nitro in the Little Nate altered at the Chuy's cackle deal during the 2012 CHRR weekend (with fellow aussie Vic Wood tuning)

    Been on the road a couple of months now, getting the bugs out gradually. I'm not sure if I would like to change the wheel color to silver rims with black hubs. Any one on here that knows how to photo shop this pic?
