Well, as time goes on so is the project.
Getting ready for some real paint soon.
It seems that fitting the hood so it sits sort of straight has been one of the biggest challenges.
Here is a pick of how it currently sits.

Just hope that we can get back together just like this once it is painted.

I have to get around to updating the gallery and such...

I think we can see the light at the end of the tunnel now (just hope it is no a train...).

Looks nice!

I'm putting mine back together now too. Didn't do near as much body work as you've done. I had to get a "V" brace bar to help with the hood + front end assembly. It came, but it's a bit short and I'll need to modify it; maybe its for a car or some other model than a 3/4 ton.

Your truck looks really good!

It has been a while since I have given an update.
Replaced the cab with a different one along with the grill and running boards.

Been doing body work, seems like forever...

Getting it ready to paint.

Then on to putting it all together.

Nice color. That color is going to look good on that style pickup. The hard work is beginning to pay off. Thanks for sharing.

I really like the choice for dash gauges, seems to set off the style of the truck. Pat
