From Jon :
Here are "before" and "after" photos of my just recently finished 1951 Chevrolet 3100 1/2 ton pickup.
The truck is all original with the Forrester Green paint. It's been seven months work with a complete disassembly and restoration of this truck. A lot of the ideas and restoration was made possible from the members of the Stovebolt site and I can’t say enough for all the help I have received.
The name I applied for my truck is: "oilslickwillie". I have more photos on my Webshots album.

Here are a couple of photos of my project, a 1951 Chevy 1/2 ton. It's all apart right now -- no fenders, running boards, etc. I am in the process of restoring the truck and just about have it ready for reassembly. I just need to paint and do a little bodywork.
The truck has no rust, but needed rebuilt brakes, exhaust, wheel cylinders, master cylinder, etc. Also, I'm putting in new gears so I can go faster than 45 mph. The truck has a 235 with a 4 speed conversion from a 3 on the column.
I have four hubcaps on my truck. These hubcaps look like baby moons but have the large Chevy bowtie in the middle with a smaller Chevy bowtie inside of the large one. Originally, I think the large bowtie was painted blue. Mine need to be painted though. They are in excellent shape chrome and dent wise.
I will update you all after it's finished -- if I ever get there!
