Thanks guys.

4x4 decals for the bed sides were a requirement, so I found an image online that I liked, reduced it, and printed it.

It looked too black on this truck, so I switched the numbers to a blue color, and left the drop shadow black.

This turned out much better.

They never print as vividly as they look on the screen, so choose a more vibrant color than you want before hitting print.

Basically done, except for the roll bar and push bar.

The roll bar is mostly decided, but I'm torn on the push bar and I need some input. I like it, but I think it hides/competes with the grille. Better with or without?

After those last item(s) are on, I'll take some outdoor shots and put it Under Glass.

That is absolutely beautiful and I sure wish someone would offer that bed in resin or better yet, a complete kit like that!

My opinion? Leave the push bar and roll bar off, it looks just fine without either one.

Decided: No push bar. But I really think that the roll bar adds something.

I may make it removable.

The best short bed Ford like this that I have seen built yet!!! I would put the push bar and roll bar on it. It looks excellent either way!!

Roll bar looks perfect on it, push bar I could take or leave. If you put it on, I'd probably leave the winch off. Absolutely beautiful build, especially considering what you started with.

Thanks guys. Travis, the winch is molded in, the push bar was from a Bronco kit, and wasn't chromed originally. It may go onto a Moebius '72 long bed 3/4 ton 4x4 in the planning stages.

turned out Greaat!  I agree the roll bar is a must for that year....everyone had them in the mid 70's thru the 80's push bar was used alot also...maybe you can use some double sided scotch tape and change it up now and then!

 But really nice work on it the BMF looks great.  My first ever BMF job was a 58 Impala SS  did it inside and out....its tricky work sometimes  but man what a change it gives on the finished product.

It's been a fun project, rebuilt junker has always been my favorite build type. More of these to come, as I have several boxes of junk that need a second chance. I'm waiting for a nice, slightly overcast day to get some outdoor pictures for the under glass forum. Forecast says maybe Saturday.
