OK, Shiftace (at first I read it: "****face" then upon second take I realized my mistake.) OK you did it again: What is that all about?

Larry I like the way you fit the tank up higher. It's more protected and that's allot of extra fuel to have.

Nice. Very interesting how you ran the exhaust. You have a lot of very unique mods done.

This is awesome. Rugged, you are just like my dad—a true do-it-yourselfer. He races dirt track cars @ 59, and he does his own fab & maintenance work (with some assistance from his crew). I'm going to send a link to this thread to him so he can see your work. Great job!

Dave,
What color do you think I should paint it. Maybe paint it for accent? Or should it be multi faceted? I really think that is should not be a distraction. What do you think?

If you would like I can open it up to you?

Quote=is that an extended cab 55-59 chev/gmc project I see in the background???

Hoss:
You've got good eyes. Yes that is a project that started 15 years ago. It is really a very nice project. Started out as a 57 chev. pu. and he made it into a extended cab and added a dodge dully rear box on it. The body work is perfect. But he lost his vision and now it sits. He also has a Trans Am sitting in his garage and is building a big motor for it. But he is such perfectionist that that project too will never get done just like his PU.

I wish someone would take over that PU and finish it. It is such a shame to have put all that effort into it just to let it sit there. He has every part for it, just stored away. He is retired like me, only he has no motivation.

Since you have blue and white as accent colors, I would probably pick red.

Hey guys,

That hood support is only 2 feet long. I can't make every one happy.
