better late than never

Meant to post a few pics sooner but finally got some paint on Carrie in july. Never named a vehicle before but a lady friend of mine named her for me since she swears the truck is possessed with all the issues I have had with her in the last couple months. Haven't got any really good shots but here ya go

I really like that you kept the back window the original size. The chops that make the mail slot rear window just don't look right to me.

Awesome is right - Having seen the interior, what part does the local shop think he can do better?

lol no prom in our future. the corner panels in the interior didn't turn out the greatest. Its all a combo of rod doors stuff and stock stuff. pretty much all of it had to be modified to fit. it has a good seamed headliner it it.some of the stitching is starting to spread on the seat as well. They want to do complete custom panels, 1 piece roof, re-foam the the seat and change color to a grey/black combo with exotic leather. He fell in love with the truck when i took it in to get him to put the headliner in and made the offer to redo it all. When i had discussed it with him, i just referred to it as my old '50 pickup. I think he was expecting a beater or rat rod. lol

Very nice looking truck! How much chop? How high are the seats and do you have enough head and leg room?

Thanks

Brad

Congrats, she came out very clean, color, stance, back window, bed ,interior, all very,very nice. I think the grey/ black would look nice with the blue, if you decide to go that route.
