Thanks for all the compliments.
I built the hood kit myself. I spent a lot of hours getting this to work properly but it was worth it now that it is done. I am working on getting this together to see if I can build them at a decent cost for anybody that might be interested.
I also made the left taillight slide out and put the gas cap in behind the light. I used a spring loaded cap that you don't have to take off. The nozzle pushes into the cap.
I also molded in a third brake light into the tailgate so that it is smooth with the metal. The red paint makes it blend in to where it isn't hardly noticeable until the brake light comes on.
The truck went down to bare frame and started from there. I even had the frame powdercoated so it looks as good as the outside.
It only took 9 1/2 years to get this truck done. My Dad bought ths truck in 1972, sold it in the 90's and I bought it back in 2001. I changed it quite a bit from stock when he had it.
