53 progress update with pics

The 10 year plan in now nearing the end of year 5. So far so good. So far I've done cab corners, rocker, 1/2 a floor, door bottoms. Welded body seams. Shaved front valance of the directionals. Front disk brake kit. Hanging power brake kit. All new brake lines and gas lines? New gauges. All new wiring. Rebuilt 351w. Modified shifter to work with fmx tranny. Solid side window kit in progress. New spring bushings and extra leaf removal. Corvette tail lights. Under bed tank.
Still needs a complete new bed and interior. But for now it runs, drives and stops. Enjoy!
