    I ran into a big problem today. I'm running out of parts to put on this thing. Today was a good day and got a lot of things done. Photos tomorrow when I can get it out in the sun.

    At 2:20pm yesterday I turned the last bolt. Today it goes in the Boise Roadster Show and we will see how she does.

    As I had mentioned in the past, this build was done in my bothers memory. He was there the day I picked up the cab on a farm. RIP bro! It has been good therapy for me dealing with all the family issues I've had the last 6 years.

    This is what happens when you put a dice in a glass fuel bowl with ethanol. Major part of my fuel issues after the water was removed. I found it just before the drive to the show set up Wednesday. Runs great now. Dice on left is a new one.

    Congrats on finishing the truck and a very nice job. I'm curious also; how did the dice get in the fuel bowl ?

    Beautiful truck, Mel. Your license plate says NAILDIT, I realize that refers to the cool nailhead engine but in fact you really did "nail it" with this build. Hope to see this beauty soon!!

    I think they were yellow and looked kinda cool in that glass bowl, but ethanol melted them! :eek:
