79 F350 SuperCab 4x4 almost done

What do you fellow Oregonions think of my restoration? This was a frame off down to bare metal from the axels up restoration, pwr windows, pwr locks, pwr seats, factory A/C and cruise. Its been a year and half since my son and I started this and we're getting close to finish line now!

Thanks guys! Here's another shot just after putting the fender flares, mirrors, and steps on it, the bed got painted white Saturday morning and will get its silver painted this week. I cant wait to set it on.

I had the body and all parts dipped, we used all new seam sealers and brought it back to life! Fun but very time consuming!

Yes its got the cam broken in and just a drive around the block when there was no front end on the truck, other than moving it around the shop thats it. It got a big Flowmaster 40 series with 2 inlets and 2 outlets, sounds very throaty! I cant wait to get in and really drive it.
