Great job on your truck!! I'm glad you stuck with your original plan on the truck. I especially like some of your details like the red stitching on the black leather.

Thanks for all the kind words. I can't wait to finally drive her. It's been 18 long months of waiting, spending $$$$$, and stress.

Wow!!! Very Cool...It's nice to see a shop out there that delivers. I have read many horror stories. Mine won't be anywhere near as pretty and costly, but I won't be driving mine in 18 months either....
I love the interior! Congrats!

Stopped by the restoration shop to take a peek st the progress. Josh is firing her up on Monday! Looking great and I'll finally be able to drive her soon. The Grill looks amazing in person and something I've been waiting to see since we modified it and chromed it. That was so long ago...what a great surprise

It is beautiful! Are you going to drive it, or is it just going to be a show truck?

Beautiful truck, you must be so pleased with it, every where you look is so well done, what a beauty.
