    Had the doors hanging and decided I'd just rehang them on the cab for now before something bad happened to them. I also got the bed cover cleaned up and reinstalled. The next thing will be to get some of the dirt out of the top that got in the paint. Then I'll start lettering it. I'm gonna stall on that as long as I can. :)

    Been replicating the lettering on the truck as close to original as I can. Not perfect but It ain't bad.

    IMG-1979.jpg IMG_20210314_194104692_HDR.jpg IMG_20210313_183031219.jpg Well it only took 12 years to get this back in one piece but here it is! Other projects and life itself slowed me down but I ain't letting of the throttle anytime soon now!

  15. It looks AWESOME. :cool:
    Nicely detailed, but not over-restored such that it's character is smoothed over and lost forever.
     
  16. .........Well said, Gary, well said.:)

    I Love that truck a TON, you have done such a awesome job bringing it back to life once again, it has turned out great! I have had a love of the '30's Altered Coupes, trucks and sedans for 50+ years now.
    I'm so looking forward to the day that you bring the Nailhead to life.
    Very well done my friend, well done.

  19. Ha ha, { Too nice?!? } That's like saying a girl can be too pretty, or a Hot Rod too fast! I think his pals are afraid his head won't fit in that little cab if they tell him how good he's doing. lol Todd can only do things one way. That's the Best Way! A great job, Mr. Va. HAMB.

  26. I really like your throwback thursday. Where has all the time gone? Seems like just yesterday that you found it. I hope Jim gets a ride, or at least gets to see it go down the strip. That will be Priceless. Not only are you the luckiest, but your also one of most talented Hot Rodder's I know. Your even hold the Clumberland Md. Butt dart championship! You make the Knuckledragger's proud !!! 247.jpg 255.jpg .

    I'm a bit confused with the original lettering the comma between Jim , Morris. Is his name Jim Morris or were there two drivers Jim and Morris? NOT a complaint with your extremely fine build just confused LOL. :confused:
