    Here are a couple of pics of my winter project. Just got the rear wheels finished so I could roll it out in the snow. 364 nailhead. Custom box. Let me know what you guys think

    I'm usually not a fan of the extended wheel base trucks but I like this one.

    What's up with the rear of the bed?? Do you have any pics of that??

    I like it, more thinkin than alot of people realize to get that look,if anyone asks why you did this or that,just do what I do, ask them where theirs is? Shuts up a whole bunch of book readers. Very good effort , looks cool standing still, wait til you let your friend drive it down the road so you can see it in motion, you will let your friend drive it ,won't you ? :):) your friend ,Dan

    Here is one pic of the bed. Ignore the square tubing you see under the rear that was just used to build the bed. It will go away once all the mounts are finished. Anyone care to guess what car gave up the pieces to create the rear corners?

    oddrodgarage you had it right 63 riviera front fender tops on the back of the box. The wheels are nissan murano spares 18,s up front custom 20,s in the rear. Wait until you guys see the rear suspension. Pics are coming.
     
  16. Thought so...since my Rivi is parked about 8 feet from my computer...looks cool...more pix when ya get the chance
     
  17. Those wheels are killer...guess I'll be calling the junkyard connection tomorrow

    The murano wheels are 18 inch stock. The front ones I cut out the centers and moved them further into the rim. The rears I cut out the center and machined a spacer ring to drop them into 20 by 5.5 inch implement hoops.
     
  21. Man, that's nice! Some build pics, please!!!!!

    Lot of cool ideas there. I really like the fender tops as bed corners, and the murano spares are neat. I've heard they're 18x4 and we'll probably see a few of them in current and future builds. Thanks for sharing ;)
