Happy New Year


2020

A New Year
A New Decade
A New Vision

Ring in the new with some quality time with your old truck! A great time to tackle a winter project. If you do not have access to your truck, start your parts list for spring!
The days are officially getting longer now, you know!

Very nice, and well executed! I like that bucket/bench seat concept.
Can you clue us in on that brake system?
If it makes sense, I’d convert my old 54 hydrovac.
Thanks again for going to the trouble to share this. C


I have a large carbon footprint. That’s why my wife makes me take off my boots in the house.

Very nice build! Did you upgrade the brakes and suspension? I have a 54 4400 flatbed with the original 5 / 10 lug wheels and i want to get rid of split rims and modernize it.
thanks Todd
