    Thanks. Yes Rusty, Daniel did do the stripe work.
  7. I've been following this build since the beginning, and it's awesome to see how nice the truck turned out! I hope once Steve & Geoff see it in Pomona, they shoot it for a feature in an upcoming Rodder's Journal. Congratulations, on an amazing restoration, and thanks for taking the time to share the build process with the H.A.M.B.

    Ditto !! this has been a spectacular restoration. It was so cool to see it in the state it was in last year at the Round Up and we are really exited about having it back in the "after" stage. Pure class. See you at GNRS

    Thanks guys. I can't wait to get it done and get it on the road.

    It will be going to quite a few shows this year. GNRS, Santa Maria, Long Beach, Salina, Columbus, Detroit, Dallas Autorama and that is just naming a few. I will post a more complete list with dates very soon.

    Progress on the Truck is slow but steady. Front bumpers are on and the front splash aprons are almost made. Not to much time now. Get ready GNRS!

    Final update until the truck makes it's debut at the GNRS. No pictures this time though. It’s considered top secret till it’s unveiling. You guys will have to post your pictures of the truck from the show.

    The interior is in and looks amazing. The front bumpers, splash aprons, headlights and windshield are all in. The motor was fired up and runs great! It is basically done and let me tell you it looks incredible.

    IF I had enough money it would be in my garage.

    See you in sunny California!!!
  30. you should make a vid of it running and put it on youtube!
