Back to work on the truck after a few months hiatus. The metal shop called today to come pick up the work I dropped off. The did a great job fabricating the compartment doors and rear storage bins. Everything will be primed this afternoon. Check out the pics!

Wow! Just stumbled onto this thread. That's a really unique build! Keep up the good work! I'm not all the good with wood, but looks like you got a really good handle on this thing. Nice job.

Thanks Dano. The project is nearing the end. I had a body shop come by yesterday to give me an estimate just for painting. I will find out next week.

Also been working on the interior wood and hope to have it painted in place next week. The truck still had the Lombard Village ID sticker that was placed on the steering column in 1960.
