that is looking great, and I too love the fender treatment. how will the interior tub be effected by the channel job? a lot or? just asking as I have no idea.

 

keep plugging away, looks great.

Love the truck. VERY VERY clever! 

 

Strawberry shortcake stickers huh?  Hmmmmm.....

 

I used to do model trains with the rivet counter crowd.  And then I made the "Pac Man" train in which I shortened every cary to about 1/3 its normal length and would run double speed.  Most loved it.  The rivet counters?  Well....   And note the "used too".

 

And which do you suppose planted a seed for up and comers to enter the hobby and would "stick" with them? 

 

The long forgotten addage "If you cant say something nice, say nothing at all"  seems to still prevail here. 

 

It IS such great place to get suggestions and encouragement instead of going before a firing squad.

 

Dont mean to get philosophical but more to praise those here on this forum.

 it wasnt affected to much. on the bottom of the interior floor pans were the cab mounts that set the cab roughly 1/8th off of the frame. i removed those and sat the cab 2/16ths further down and the rest is cab skirts. So with that said i only have to remove 2/16ths off of the bottom of the door panels and the panel that goes at the back of the cab. ill post pics when i get to it haha

Making it all about me and thinking out loud, ya know, a chop top and/or a huge visor like that used in the 1950's might go nice. 

 

Fuzzy dice, curb feelers, gangster whitewalls.....  Heck, a woody with surfboards?

 

Lots of fun following this one.  Keep it up!

So very neat.  Would love to see how you do/did the rear suspension on the truck and trailer if possible.
