Looks great, nice work! In the very first pic of the passenger door it looks like there is no sign, did you have to sand off some paint to find it? Or am I just not seeing it...
Very cool to see the old logo, and the cab once lived about 90 miles down the road from me in Beaumont Texas (I am in Houston).

When I was removing the paint brush applied green paint I found some door art hiding under there...


It said "Harold Coble, Milesburg, PA", which is about 2 hours from my home.
And 25 minutes from my house!

We didn't see it until the sun hit it just right and we saw an embossed look on the door so we decided to sand it down and see what it said

That's a great build!! I love the fact that you're retaining the flatty and going with modern suspension, steering and brakes. That makes for an awesome one-of-a-kind combination. I will give you one word of free advice, though. Strongly consider ditching the 59A crashbox 4-speed right now. With the rest of the modern upgrades you've made to the chassis, it would be a shame to leave that unruly brute in there. Shifting isn't synchronized in any gear. I can almost guarantee that you'll hate double clutching to shift all the time and it will take the fun right out of driving the truck. Look into a floor shift light duty 3-speed. It would bolt right in place of the 4-speed with no mods to your freshly painted chassis. A T-5 5-speed would be nice too, but you'd have to cut to make it fit.

Way to get after it and spend the $$...I bet you won't regret it as much as us that save the money and have to suffer through long periods of no progress!

Lookin good.
