We're still plugging along John, here are some updated pictures...











Engine and transmission are back in the frame. Fuel and brake lines are run. Headers on and most of the exhaust is hung. Currently wet sanding and buffing the cab. And in the middle or rebuilding the rear axle, plus adding a 3.73 gear set. More pictures to follow as we make progress.

Will do, with a little luck... might have the rear axle finished and painted this week. Also would like to get the front brakes assembled 100%. I would say a few more weeks before the cab is finished, then it can go back on the frame. I feel that once the cab and bed go back on - it will really start to look like a truck. In the current state, I think most people see it as a huge go cart.

Thumbs up Some truck porn for Flash...











Still wet sanding and buffing the cab here and there. It is slated to go back on the frame on the 22nd of this month.

What's going on flash (well maybe that is not the right question to ask). Is it the guys in the shop you have it at ?
