yes or no on the emblem for mud flaps ????

YES

When you walk around this pickup, you just keep seeing those extra little touches that make it stand out so. 

No stone left unturned so to speak. 

 

And the wood grained steering wheel ties in nicely with the sideboards.

i believe body is done ! 
we are having little problem with a exhaust manifold bolt but that’s being worked on as we speak .

it will be going to upholstery next week !

We decided it needed the flap emblem to even it out . Would of been too dark down below . 
here is her back end .

Beautiful Truck Tony!! 

Excellent job as always 

Can't wait to see a shot of it outside against some of that fine scenery in the background.

Maybe a photo with the rest of the stable mates out on a sunny day

Wow! I bet you would have to pick up Herb’s jaw off the ground if he saw it. 😊 To take a “work truck” and make it functional artwork is something to be very proud of indeed. Bravo!

Thank you Gentlemen for your kind words !

it was a long hall , I am very happy but tired 

and ready to enjoy it and take a break from restorations . 
I’ll be posting the interior when finished and when I get it home . 
if my health holds , we are planning on going to RPRU in Ohio later in June so planning on bringing it home when we get back around first of July .

Interior is in the same class as exterior.

Excellent +

I swear it keeps looking better with each set of pictures you share with us.
