Thanks dozer. It has been hard seeing it sit. But y'all know life gets in the way sometimes. I figured I couldn't put on a show this summer that includes a cruise and not have it on the road!!!

Truck is looking great! I like the wood finish, the burn came out nice. The wheels are a really nice choice too. How will the original style cap be held on?

Thanks. The hub caps will be attached to a smaller set of new ones. I believe they are 7.5" caps that fit these wheels. I did a similar trick Tina 48 GMC I built for a guy a few years back.

The girls stayed with my dad and stepmom last night. So the wife and I went for a walk this morning to get her out of the house, we stop by the shop on the way back up to the house. I got about an hour to tinker with the truck. I got my new upper adjustable control arms on. Much better pinion angle

Got my hubcaps then I ordered from Amazon. Sometimes you get a love Amazon. Ordered them yesterday got them today they weren't supposed to show up till Tuesday. Took a couple minutes and chucked one up in the lathe scribed it so I could cut it to fit the original hubcap. They press fit in their decent so I will be able to tack them in with no problem. Should work flawlessly

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Awesome! When Wheelsmith did mine, they cut the ring off and then welded a new ring on the right size. Sounds like yours is even easier.
