I had to buy a new front panel but the rest is original. I can't wait to see the whole thing put together.

I love how you are restoring the truck back stock. No extra chrome, just an honest truck.

The grille bars are original, they aren't perfect, but I think that adds character. I had 2 sets of original bars and I used the best of the two. That was the original bed wood. I didn't put it back in because I decided to use the bed frame supports that were on the bed floor that I used (much stronger).

Thanks for saying that. My intention from the beginning was to restore it as close to original as possible. I have had so many comments and naysayers about my plan. Nice to have a positive response.
