Ken,

You did a great job, you can be very proud of your work! I hope my '51 3100 turns out half as nice as yours. Drive it with pride.

Beautiful build. I have never felt more inadequate that I do right now.

What are those seats? Are they custom or are they from something else?

Edit: derp. Reading is hard. How is the height on them?

Man, that thing is SWEET!

Sorry, haven't checked in in a while.
Seats out of a 96 suburban, I think. Had to section out about 4" of width. Full power on drivers side, so fully adjustable. Custom seat mount brackets so you can get it where you want it.

Quit teasing, more pics please, we have to live vicariously through others you know.

Nice, great attention to detail. The vented coil covers and getting rid of the *#&% leaking cowl vent door are two highly visible upgrades. Did you use a pop up fuel cap? No pic of finished LR fender. We have not used a No Limit chassis but it looks very sanitary. We have had good luck with Detroit Speed units. Is the EFI a Holley Sniper or the new FiTech, either prettier than the GM set up. Again, Nice Truck!

How often do you have to replace the rear tires?!

Sweeeet. I would almost be afraid to drive it. Almost ☺
