    Things are coming along, the weathers been really rainy so no paint.. Got the motor set in and now I am looking for a chevy ratiator to use because the fords hose outlet goes right into the fan.. But, I am making progress and money, so hopefully it'll get kicked back into gear soon

    Let's try Image Shack..

    After I have put many, many, many hours of bodywork/sanding into the cab, my parents came and helped me get it ready for final prep before it's first coat of primer! Very Kool! Here are the updates..
