1966 1200 Factory LP Flat bed.

Will there be a pinstripe or anything on the wheel/hub cap to differentiate the two?  It all looks wonderful. Very much looking forward to seeing pics in the sunlight with bed done. 👍🏼👍🏼

 When all is done we'll see what touches it needs.

   At this point I am thinking the I.H. on caps will need to be either pin striped or painted in.

So sorry to hear about your hospital stay Tony but glad to hear you are back home. Take care of yourself. I believe looking at that truck could cure a lot of ailments 😍

Tony sorry to hear about your hospital stay. And l can relate to being tied to a oxygen tank. l'm supposed to be on 2 liters but eventually got it down to "as needed". Just hang in there mi amigo.

Herbie is looking better all the time!! Can't wait to see that LP tank when it's painted!!

Tony, I hope you are in full recovery the truck is looking super

Thank You for all your well wishes ! 

  I feel my lungs getting stronger but I am still very weak ,and on 4 liters oxygen.

      When I passed out from coughing amd went down , I hurt my back and its still killing me , Hospital took xray deemed nothing broken and I been on pain pills since , but it does not seem to be lessening in pain intensity. 

planning on followup on back after new year.

Guys if a cough starts up, get it checked quick , within four  days went from light to heavy cough and double pneumonia , everything I have mimics the new variant Omicron and its known for moving fast on seniors.

 Wish everyone here a happy , healthy New Year !

  Good news ,

 They tell me all systems under hood is complete except for propane, parts are caught in holiday freight backlog.

Now its a matter of powder coating,  top plate and bottom of bed black then painting bed frame,  Head acke frame and tank, lift, Red.

 Tank hold down mount  will go for chroming. After that then the wood around bed.

   Not sure if exhaust system is made yet. It will be simple Duels coming out behind rear tires

  Thank you for your well wishes !  I would like to respond to them !

   An update as of 1/6/22  Doc said my lungs sound much clearer. As you know I was taken by Ambulance to hospital after passing out due to intense cough and diagnosed with severely infected double pneumonia. They started me on three types of Antibiotics IV four nights and oxygen immediately was in for five days. Sent me home on 12/19/21 on 4 liters of oxygen , I am now down to 2 liters

On 12/14/21, going in to hospital  He administered covid test , it came back Negative ! So far all my tests have been negative but many of my symthoms mimic covid less the fever. 12/19/21 and 1/4/22 was given covid tests all negative.

I have been cleared to start walking in the yard and monitor my oxygen. I am thinking next week I'll go down to one liter and see how my walks do. 

 Only set back now is I have broken out in red rash and bad itching, Doc gave me Kenalog shot and said, give it two days , its very uncomfortable. Not shingles, He thinks its a allergic reaction to meds

   Thank you all for the support and my point here is to say; take care of your selves, if you get a cough and your breathing feels affected get to a doctor quick, these maladies these days are moving at speed of light or we are just getting older.

  Praying that I will be up to par to chair the Calif. Antique Farm Equipment show come April 21, 22,23/22
