One nice truck and some amazing fabrication skills.
Hey Alex...looking good man...great fabrication!
Subscribed for certain...
I got up extra early yesterday and got the rear wheels and tires mounted.
It turned even better than I imagined. Now it's time to buckle down and save up and get the fronts!
now youre just showing off..haha
Nice stance what style tubs are you using in the bed side? Looks good keep us posted.
I haven't decided on tubs yet. Due to the air ride suspension, the bed floor will be raised substantially, and once I get to that part of the fabrication, I can figure out the size I'll need.
hell yeah, keep up the good work!
good choice on wheels looks bitchin,I spaced the pic of big block. nice truck
Just an observation. Ever notice that guys who have the gift and talent to produce welds and fabrication like pictured here, generally have shops or work environments that are just as well organized and orderly? I'm always amazed at this type of ability.
The guy who did the welding/fab in the back has a shop the size of a 3 car garage and Alex has a work area the size of a coffee table! Pretty amazing so far! I'm really jealous of his wheels, I went the cheap, they sort of look like ET3's but Alex stepped up on did the real deal... Awesome!
Subscribed as well.. Great looking Truck!! and rear suspension is sic!! Im also for the HI Des.. will definatly be following this build.. Great Job!
Cruised your album and now the build thread, awesome! It's almost a shame to cover that fab work with a bed floor! The metal work on the front end really looks good, another vote here for the Nomad bumper.
I have been following your build on the truck site and this one! I really enjoy the build. Guess it is time to subscribe keep up the good work !
fantastic fab work!...nice
Great job on your truck, taking your time and doing it right, I hate the stock 57 truck grill as I have been contemplating using the the 57 grill bar also as I have a 57 Bel aire 2 dr hdtp. Looks like the fit is good and I would back it up with some gold or chrome grill mesh to hide the radiator etc. great job again and i will be looking for more post. Hopefully I can get some pice posted here too!
yea, any updates on your 57 ? the stance is perfect.... i want to see more of it...
LOOKS BITCHIN !! love how low it is and the choice of wheels!!!
that truck looks mean!
Sorry fellas, no worthwhile updates. I've been working on my '64 truck and also helping a buddy get his '49 Chevy truck back together. Once that's done, it'll be game-on because I'm really getting the itch to do some stuff on the '55.
Still collecting the last few parts for the engine, and getting pretty close to getting the top-end put back together. I'm still saving up my money for the front wheels. I can't wait until I get those bad boys because it'll give a truck a whole new attitude.
Unfortunately, I have way too many irons in the fire between work and my home projects, but I'm slowly catching up!
How about an update.
That is low!!!
Hey man you looking to sell the 55?
any progress here? Don't get me wrong, I love the C10 but this 55 has me coming back to stare at the pics........
