More than killer! lol
More updates! Pictures will be added after work. I got the front end finished up, got the break lines all ran, got the master cylinder/break pedal all bolted up, got the bed pulled, and started putting the front clip back together so I can do some patch work and see the new stance with the lower suspencion
Hey Michael! Been gone for a while, just getting caught up. You've been busy . . . new cab, new engine & tranny, new girlfriend! Good work! We need pics!
Thanks!! And alright.. Just for you
I'm wantin to run some 15 inch rims also, to bring it down just a little more
And just for fun.. Me and my buddy went on some trails a couple weekends ago, and here he is highcentered...
Keep pluckin along there and you will have one heck of a nice f1.. this one took 4 years
Looks good kid,although if it were mine it'd be about a foot lower! LOL
hey nice project and lookin good. do it while your still in high school. im 18 now and headin off to college this fall and probly gonna sell my 383 stroked rust free 72 c10 for some extra cash.
Haha! I'm workin' on that! It'll look tough when I'm done, but it has to be a daily driver
That's beautiful! I hope mine looks half that nice when I'm done!
That's my goal! Sorry to hear that man!
he is talking about u crazyhorse55
Ahhh!! Haha, Yahh Emily, he is talkin about you!
Or the truck.... Spending all your time around "her."
Great thread and even better build! looking forward to the next update
Good work man. Its cool seeing another young gun out there
I was 14 when I started my first build it was a 49 chevy truck .
it's a turn signal. Just in casse you want to enjoy driving your truck in the summer, with windows down, don't junk the wing windows. They let you drive without blowing all the dirt on the floor in your face. They give you a nice controled breeze and don't try to blow you out of the truck. they look better too. try riding in one without them and I think you will see they have a very definate purpose. Ahh it's your truck.
the truck is always the misstress u spend ur money on her spend late nights rubbing on her and most the time the gf or wife hates her
Hey! Thanks! I've been makin a lot of progress on the truck! Just, between bustin' my butt on it, and doin research papers in multiple classes at school, I haven't had much spare time to load up pictures, but I will soon!
Nice to meet you! Kool truck!
Thats a kool year, thanks!
They are definatily stayin'! Thanks for the wise words!
My wife calls my truck "The Metal Mistress"
Then I call her "Miss B-Haven" and we have a good laugh.
School first, we can wait for pictures. You're making great progress!
Keep at it. The first time you drive it around the block it will be worth all the time and work. You are building a nice truck.
Thanks! It's nice to hear the good words! I've been makin a lot of progress! Just been too busy to update! But you guys might not like my truck if my next idea works out.. I might be runnin 15x8" ford bullet hole rims on a set 33's
pic of them?
I just went through your build thread end to end. (Whew!) Looks like a great project and I really admire your tenacity, especially at your age and with school and all! Crazyhorse sounds like a treasure!
My truck (shown in my avatar) started out in almost IDENTICAL condition to yours...even the original Ford red paint. Reading through your thread makes me tired all over again!
I hope you used a bleeder-seal primer! That old red paint has a nasty habit of bleeding through to the new color. I'm not too sure about purple, but many years ago (like 40-years ago) I painted a truck that was red originally to white.. Within a couple of weeks I had a PINK truck! I scuffed it and painted it again, and within a few weeks it was PINK AGAIN. I ended up taking it back to bare metal and starting over. One of life's little (expensive) lessons.
Just went through the whole thread gonna be a nice truck!!! Keep at it will be worth every bit of it at the end.
There will be after school today
Thanks for the kind words! I hope my truck doesn't do that.. I'm not sure what kind of primer I ran, but it's been primed for a couple months with no bleeding, so I guess I'll find out
I'm tryin to make it nice, I apreciate your kind words! It's going to be my daily driver
great work for a young gun. I see your age (14), was that your age when you became a member??? or is that your age now , just wondering
