Truck update

ok ive been posting in the 73-79 forum on this site so i figured its time i updated all my fellow north carolinians on my progress. i bought the truck in feb 09. and since then i have put new brake calipers and pads, spindle hubs and bearings rear drum brakes and hardware ,altenator, coil pack, distributor,solenoid, battery ,ignition module,air filter, rebuilt the carb, and changed the blacked out grille and front bumper to chrome tinted out my turn signals on the front , the PO shaved of the side signals . i took off the woodgrain decals on my dash and left it black and silver.i just bought a brand new wiring harness to put in soon plus im goin to put diamond plate metal in the bed floor. i also want to raise my wheel wells on the bed so i can continue the dentside from the cab in to the wheel wells for a unique look . and BIGGER tires on the rear hehehe. oh yea almost forgot to mention the PO had chopped the top by 4 inches or more and lowered it also gave it a 75 camaro front end

ok this is enough for now lo

p.s. please feel appreciated this may be the longest forum ive posted or written ever lol

Is this the same truck you were trying to sell a while back? I guess you decided to keep it. You have done a ton of stuff to it. Sounds like a pretty cool truck. Is it going to be a show truck or a daily driver? Both?
