Very impressive repair of the warp. Where did you cut it?

Nice work on getting the twist out of the front end. This one was definitely worth saving.

More importantly, best of luck on your job search.
Money is the grease of life. Helps everything else go smoothly.

Ok I know it has been awhile since I last updated this build. But for those of you that might be interested I believe I have the warped body problem solved, I will post pictures as soon as I can recharge the batteries in my camera. Thanks

Ok here are a couple of new pictures of this build. After I soaked the body in some very warm water for a long long time, I got the body pretty straight (I hope). Anyway I added some plastic rod to the fender lips and across the bottom sides of the truck. This should make the fender lip more pronounce.

What do you guys think of the hood lines do you think I should keep as is or shave them off? If I get rid of them it will a little different than the original.

Very cool! Great to see this build back also, one of the coolest PickUps on the forum. Personally I would leave those Hood Lines there, they just look good. ;) Anyway it would look good without them too, but I like it that way better.
