    Got my new rims and tires today and have lowered the front 2 inches. Now the pickup is "done" for now and my focus will return to the shoebox.

    Havent updated in a while has been to Florida for some time but now im home again and got some done to the shoebox this weekend, the body is almost reddy for some paint i will paint it in black primer maybe next weekend havent decided yet the exakt color but some kind of maroon red almost Brown is the way to go but i maybe drive it this summer in black primer. Have also done templates for windshield and chopped the wing windows so will be ordering new windows this week. Here is some pictures.

    Today back and front windows came in, what you guys think should i have my appelton dummies? I cant afford real ones now and i think these match in a sort of way with little surface rost but shinny anyway they suppose to be from the 60is so they dont look exactly like dummies, not gonna run chrome around the front or back window so they match the chrome center strip between the front windows?

    That color works well with the chopped top profile. Good choice, very legit early custom kind of color.

    Rear side windows are in and working up and down. Tonight are headliner mounting time and maybe start looking at chopping the front seat so i can sit a little lower.

    The dummy spots look good. I go back and forth on them, but they look nice here. Impressive work.
