Tony, is the LP tank going to be red also?  l hope so.......😊

Absolutely ! 
plan is bed frame,  head rack , tank , stake pockets red . Winch red.
the bed plated will be powder coat black under bed black . 

the one by 12 wood around bed will be over laid with thin stainless steel inside and out .

my plan is to have our local pin stripper do the blacksmith logo on tank

How did they get the same track in the front as the rear with the GM rear axle and semi-stock IHC-Dana in the front?

 

 

Straight axle off late model IHC with disk brakes in front and custom made wheels all around .

  Took forever to find the right matching combination from the beginning.

You have come along way on this project. I am looking forward to the day you finally get it driven!

We have an old 93 K2500 Chevy with the 10.5" rear end in 4.11 and a hydro boost brake system, both are operating fine.

Keep us posted!

Thank you Sir ! 
I sure will , I am starting to see the finish line in the nearer distance !

I keep telling the shop Guys , my window is closing ! I need time to drive it and enjoy it !

Guess that’s what happens when one waits too long to retire while trying to make extra dollars to spend on these toys ! Lol lol

Tony stop having those negative thoughts and be positive!!! 

  Yes Honey ! That's what Carol tells me also ! 

    Your right and I have so much to be positive for , However, as I feel my energy wane it feels as though the window is creeping . lol.  Probably because I am approaching 76 in Dec. lol , Joining the Back side of 70's

Tank has been certified and is off to sand blaster, after then to painter then back for new valves etc. 

 The mounting frame; probably clean welds then chrome.
