Impressive progress, and nice direction on the build; man there isn't a lot of spare room in that engine bay.lol

Keep up the great work, I am looking foward to the end result.

Didnt like the way the fenderwells were contouring the tires, 1/4 bar stock a bit of tin, oh yeah , I didnt have a bender so I kept hitting the concrete till I got the contour I wanted (ha ha if you watched Bad Chad) I actually used a tire to bend it.

Thanks, I guess plans have now changed, I'll never be able to match the original patina to the bed, so I'll have to come up with a fautina similar to my other truck this time using blue

Very impressive , I wish I had your fabrication skills. Can you tell me what paint and what the paint code is for the Sheridan blue you are using. , Doug.
