Nice build. Good luck with the wife. Tell her you are saving history. My daughter enjoyed the visit, we will see what the other colleges look like. We also spend a week in Bella Vista Arkansas every summer. I might have to buzz by and check out your work. I'm a complete novice and have never done any welding or anything like that. I'm learning a lot as I go. This site has saved me many a time already.
I have a build thread set up in the '47 forum. When I get this truck finished, I would like to find a decent 48-52 truck to start on next. (If my wife doesn't kill me first) BTW, MSSU is a great college. I have had several friends and family members go there. Here is a link to my build.
