Hi IR POPS

I would say dont chop more off the top but take a look at issue #11 of Rat Rod Magazine and look in the back section and you'll see a fellow from my neck of the woods (upstate NY) and he built a project similar to yours and he added a homebuilt visor on his Dodge Pilot-house from a old street sign and made some bends on each end and then a small bend in the middle to make it conform to the shape of the cab. It really takes the edge off of the high roof appearance that these trucks have.

Just a thought thats all and my smelly old 2 cents too.

The guy with the power wagon called and said he would go 2000. I'll bet I can buy that thing for 1500 in 30 to 45 days. Divorce spells need money bad.
Its local, but not super close to me about 1.5 hours I think to flint.

I hope you do get that power wagon, its making me really want to find one...

Skull- You may be right. I might have to put a dodge badge on it. Thanks.

I've already been asked "what the heck is it"!
Funny thing is that I hesitated and had to think before I answered.
Ha

Your new project is interesting. Hammer away!!!

Default Progress

I've been getting some time here and there.

Dash and guages in place.

Shroud put together and radiator set in place

Front axle plan in motion.

Brackets and gussets cut.

Front 4-link tacked in.

Rear brackets hung and waiting for 4-bar ends.

Air bags just sitting and waiting for the moment
of inspiration and ambition.

Contemplating front grille angle and height.

I really want to get this thing to the roller state
before the 1st of December. I have to have knee
replacement surgery and I'm not looking forward to it.
Been putting it off for a long time but the pain has gotten
to the point that I can't stand it.

Enough whining!!!

Here's a few pics.
