Fabricated a couple of more things this past week
shovel holder , diesel spray can holder and safety latch on tail gate .
I'll be working on coal chute and i have a buddy stopping by to do a couple of fiberglass repairs . Then hopefully i'll be done welding and start preping for paint .

Good choice. Keep up the nice work. Nothing like pride in your equipment!!! Huge fan of those Louisville trucks, but a dieing breed. Again, REAL nice truck.
