You did a beautiful job on those wheel well/body flairs! This whole build is shaping up to be great!

Love the work on this, nice save in the twist.
I noticed the rear corners of the hood don't quite match up to the cowl (rounded off a bit)...not picking on your work, just mentioning in case you haven't noticed it.

Not much new to update but I did repair the hood lines since I sanded them half off during the build process. I added platic rod over original lines. Bondo and sanded smooth.

Well its been awhile since I have had anything to update on this build. But I did finally get to do some work on it. I cut out an spot in the drivers side fenderwell for a master cylinder. I also made a master cylinder,cause I could not find one I liked. Made it from an assortment of parts. I took the master cylinder from an old build cut the fluid tank off, added a larger mounting flange to the back of it, drilled holes for studs and added plastic rod for the studs, then cut them to size,added some brass tubing for the brake lines, then made a cap out of plastic tubing. It will look better after I clean it up and paint it.

I added a seperation line between the inner fenerwells and the body. First I taped off the area then I used the backside of an exacto blade to carve my line. Then I added some putty to make some corrections to my line. Then sanded it and this is what I came up with, may need a liitle more work to finish.

Last but not least, I added some material to the bottom of the window openings. Use plastic sheet cut to size for this. I will round off the outer top edge a little. Maybe?

Looking awesome. glad to see your back to work on it... I can only dream of having 1,000,000,000th of a % of your talent. But having fun is what is important!
that's what I keep telling myself hehe.


Having fun is what it's all about, and you have more talent than you give yourself credit.

hello and Happy new year to everyone. At this moment I am kinda stalled on this build because I dont know what color I want to  paint it. My original intent was to lay down a fade paint job like Gene Winfield use to do back in the day, but aparently my air brushing skills are not up to par for this. So I have came to all of you for some advice for paint. I want to keep  this a color that would have been used for a 60"s custom. Any Ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Ok everyone I finally had a little time to do some work to this build, not much but every bit counts. I made some grommets for the spotlights I will have to shave them a little thinner, also made a couple of rear view mirrors for this truck, the first one I made the center kinda melted so I made a second one (black) . Also added door handles.
