    Finally a couple of extra photos. You can see the left cab corner still needs work.

    Making progress the front shock towers are in and the rear shocks finally came in. The 14: shocks were too short so replaced with 16".

    You may have also noticed the Denso racing alternator has been replaced with a Powermaster PowerGen too.

    The floor is nearly finished too. You can see the cutout for the shifter and the emergency brake. The roof supports have been added to smooth out the roof from the extension.

    Hey folks

    I know it's been awhile but the 34 is moving right along. Bed has been primed, cab is almost ready. Ironing out a few items but here is a video of the current status.

    The 34 grille shell need a trim piece so one was milled from steel, bent in to shape and welded then shipped to Jon Wrights to be chromed. Opted for the show quality finish, $$$ Ouch! Anyway, can't wait to get it back to see it.

    Here are some interior shots. The Julianos '39 banjo steering wheel is a piece of jewelry. I've got a 27 roadster and it too will get this steering wheel, love this thing! Got some over head storage, mirror is installed too. Don't know if you noticed but the Vintage Air controls are in the glovebox.

    Hey Folks
    It's time! Finally blowing it apart to send it out to paint, powder coating and the chrome shop. It's been a while since I've seen the chassis, "10 lbs of crap in a 5 lb bag?
