The rear bumper and light together just was'nt looking the way I wanted it to,so
I cut the top half off'narrowed it then turned it up side down,then worked the fenders out to blend in.
Then built the flush fit bed cover to cover up the full lentgh tubed wheel well so that I can get the height
I want, it will be built low as if at a show.
Next I will be droping the top , go'ing to get that rear window closer to the bed.

Update on mine: still don't have a computer, but did get the 65 painted today, and it looks really good. I'm gonna let it dry and then I'm gonna dullcote it, to match everything else.
I'm going for a differerent look so when I get my computer back I'll get pics up right away, because I might have it back by early next week if everything goes well, and the truck might be done by then too.

You can build a pick up pulling a trailer with the broke one loaded up for a project.
Davin the truck looks good. Did you cover it with white primer or milltary flat yellow
before the gloss yellow?
Pali good color looks nice.
