It looks great Spanky. Brings back lots of memories of our 51 Chevrolet 6500 with a w35 and a coffin box. I still have the truck but not the wrecker. There was nothing you couldn't move with it.

It's looking good Spanky: and that truck port will keep it that way. I'm loving that sign!!!

I especially like the brush guard. Resist the temptation to repaint it. Maybe just shoot some clear to hold the rust at bay.
