Okay, I know you think I forgot about this build, :blink:  

Shortly after starting this we decided it was time to move for the third time that "We are never doing that again". So we started building a new house and packing to old one. Almost a year later I'm finely getting my junk unpacked.

 

Anyway, enough of the excuses, it's time to get started again, although I still have little time between getting house stuff setup. 

 

I kind of accidently came up with some mirrors and would like to know what you guys think. They don't need to look factory stock as the truck is a light custom.

So what do you think, does it look proportional?  Real?

The mufflers mirrors look great, Tom. Go with 'em!

At first glance they look right, until you notices that they are mufflers. I would go with them.

Thanks.  I think they look more like mufflers in the photos than they do in person. I'm going with them but I'm going to sand the end ridge a little to make it thinner.  

 

It's just great to be working on something.

Looking great, I can't wait to see it done. I like your idea of the Oliver colors. Mirrors are great, and the fifth wheel deal is genius!

I got both mirrors done.

 

 I have been too busy getting my outside shop set up and finishing the inside shop. Still need to get the paint booth vented outside.  

 

Sorry about the photos, Fokti is moving everyones photos to a new server and says it will take a few months.
