Bruce

That looks great. Excellent paint work. Where did you get the diamond plate for the bed? Got enough left to cover the top of my 67 GTX radiator?

I striped some black wire that was big enough to let the chain through...

Nice conversion Bruce! I'm going to have to give that one a try sometime. I've always liked Rick Dale's truck.

I have to say out of your recent ford truck post this one is my favorite. I'm a big fan of the show and always loved that truck. Kinda curious what ever happened to his kids slammed truck. I don't remember seeing it finished. Anyways, great job. I think you pretty much got it right on.
