From Tim :

It started with a really nice 1953 GMC panel truck. We purchased the Panel truck to take us to shows and events for demonstration of the thermal dynamics of automotive insulation. We learned quickly that what we really had was a 30 MPH in-town driver that needed a complete refresh from the ground up!

We showed this truck for the first time at SEMA (Las Vegas) last November.

Here is the story of our 13 month effort to update this vehicle. What started out as a simple "daily driver project," got a litle carried away!

Read the story on Tim's web site. He's got a LOT of details!
