Vegas123 is starting off with a positive reputation.
On The Road Again!!!!!!

First I want to thank everyone that helped me out over the last year. This was my first time taking on such a project. Pulling the front clip, complete rewiring, replaced all switches, 12 volt conversion, all new lights, new LED tail lights, new 12 volt horn, rebuilt flathead 6, dizzy, carb, fuel pump, new gas line, and replaced plenty of rusty bolts. I am soooo happy to be back on the road, he's not the prettiest truck but I love it!

Real nice. You should be super proud. Especially for a first time build as you mentioned. You beat the odds! So many tear down the project and pretty much become overwhelmed and give up. Congrats. I think it looks great.

Is that a windshield washer in the engine bay? How does it work? That engine looks great. How about your water pump bolts, those look new, where did you find them?

Your right that thing is hideous, Needs a bunch of bug juice all over the front end and windshield.

Get-out-a here that truck is gorgeous! Now drive the wheels off it and just try to wipe that silly grin off your face!

I agree! More bug splat would make it perfect!
