I then added some extra braces to the clutch and brake assembly.
After four months I finally got my seat back from the upholstery shop. Other than taking a long time to get it back I'm very happy with how it looks.
I also decided to get some parts on my front end chrome plated, so I sent them off to speed and sport chrome and a few weeks later they were back at my shop! They did a outstanding job can't thank them enough.
Loving the car porn
Bling blang, double pow, ding dang damn !!!! Love that chrome.
Shop looks big enough to do donuts in. Won't be long before you can try.
My shop is a 30x30 if I tried that it'd look like Austin Powers trying to turn his golf cart around. But I do hope to drive it in the next few weeks!
What brand tires & sizes are you running? I like the cook/combo. Bill
There excelsior 7.50 16 rear 5.00 16 front.
It's looking great!
and that chrome work!
Great looking truck!

Here's a few shots with all the chrome on.
I get Giddy everytime I look at your progress! I too have had a time trying to find a decent bed (just missing two 35-36 beds about 1.5 years ago for under $300, ugh!) It is amazing how similar your build is to my parts collecting! You have Great Taste! (Lol) Thanks for all the motivation you keep giving me! You are doing a FINE job!
Not really a update just thought I'd share that last night for the first time I got to drive my truck! Everything went well I still have lots to do but it was nice after 3 years of hard work to finally drive it up the road.
So cool. Love this build.
I don't know how I managed to miss this build until now BUT I'm up to speed on it now and I like it. I like it a lot.
Looks great, I like how she sits
You know you hear horror stories about bad chrome work but this..........yikes! Beautiful stuff their my friend.
It's the type of chrome I used to get from Chrome City in California in the 70's when doing my 57 Nomad.
That's like quadruple plated........
Great P/U. Well done.
Nice, Man, well done on the first drive.
