Finished and back on the road again!

1962 Flareside - 223 3-speed.
I got it in December 2010 and its taken until now to complete. Complete frame off and stripped to bare metal. This is my first base coat clear coat paint job. I had to take a welding course to deal with the roof, floors, cab corners and other bits. We did everything except sew and install the seat covers.
I hope you like it....

Great job and very inspirational. I needed a little inspiration after the last two days of dealing with wiring issues on my 64. Thanks for sharing the nice pics.

Excellent job, I love your gauges they look great. Overall a beautiful truck. I hope mine looks that good when I'm finished. Where did you hide your twin 50's?

EXCELLENTAMONDO! Get some color on the tailgate letters, a lite cream color would look great.

Why did you choose Southern Yellow Pine for the bed floor. Great inside wood, but it and mr. sunshine are enemies. Better keep it dry and covered.

Thought about my 06 F150 when I saw your electric window switches. Mine are nonelectric and I can hardly reach them.

The fact that it is a flareside makes it even more gorgeous. . Excellent job. I also really like those gauges.

Thank you for the kind words. The gauges are Autometer out of their custom shop. You get to pick the style, font, bezel etc and they make it up the way you want. I used Southern Yellow Pine for the look of the big wide grain. I put 4 coats of Marine Spar varnish on all sides. The window switches are standard GM and very easy to install. Finally the color is Lexus Medium Green. There is a lot of gold highlight in it that comes out in bright light.

OH and for TBird Larry - the P-38 had 4 50's and a 20MM cannon on it. Great Plane....
