    The first time i ever saw the '62 Chrysler grill and head lights on a '56 F-100 i thought it was the coolest thing i had ever saw. And it still is. The bumper really sets it off.

    Canted quad headlights in those trucks has always been one of the best changes you can do. It's just looks like a natural. Keep us posted on the progress.

    Todays Update-No pics just because there is not much more to see, Block sanded, and primed and painted all the little pieces so hopefully we will be installing my new dropped axel tommorow night and tuesday. Oh yeah, had to stop for a bit to watch our Colts sure up their superbowl bid.

    Todays Update-Again not much to see, took the bed off, got pissed because my parts didnt show up and found out that they wont be here until Wendsday which is going to put me two days behind, but we will make it up at night I guess. However we should be in the paint booth this weekend which Rocks! We will get there one way or another!

    Well my parts arrived earlier today (A DAY EARLY!) Now some what back on track, Dropped the axel and spindles of at the machine shop to get bushings pressed and honed, they should be done tomorrow. Pressed in the spring bushings a few minutes ago so tonight I will be hanging springs which will have me ready for tomorrow night, hoping to have the front back on the ground Wends. Night. scraping the weeds sounds good, but i think we will be plowing the snow until spring.

    Soon!, I got the front springs on last night ( It took some Gentle Persuasion and a couple cold Beers :D ), Tonight will be putting the axel on and hopefully getting her on the ground. Sucks that I have to work today-Being an adult sucks sometimes! I will keep all updated!

    Well today I finally got her on the ground, Dropped axel installed but still need to button things up. Just finished the final priming so we should be painting this weekend! She looks so much better lowered!
