Truck is back from paint - Pic inside

My '49 is finally back from paint. My buddy has a collision shop and we've been working on it when he has some free time. I did all the metal work. I had him help with smoothing it all out and actually laying the paint. He also helped hang the doors and put the front clip on. He does it for a living and I'd be banging my head against the wall trying to line it all up. I think I can handle putting the box together and putting it on the truck..I hope lol. Probably do that in the spring. Anyway, here are a couple pics of what I started with:

And here it is now:

I know, I need to get a closer pic, but the truck is now tucked away in the corner for the winter.
Just wanted to share the progress

If you can't fix it with a hammer, it's an electrical problem

Your truck looks great. Are you planning on doing the rear in the same paint scheme?

Yep. The bed is yellow with black fenders. I think the wheels are going to end up yellow and the runningboards are black.
