Sorry about the loss of your son, I think the red looks good, as does the visor, any other parts you are looking for?

just a few things to get it on the road:

a fuel cell, 12-20+ gallon one as the gas tank in the cab was no good and l am putting the gas tank/fuel cell centered in the front of the bed.

door glass, driver side is broke in 2 pieces and the passenger side is badly cracked and it may break at anytime.

shifter and cable or a cable that work's with a dodge dash shifter,

thanks,

Thumbs up exhaust

finally done with the exhaust.

used 1964-1972 chrome chevelle headers me and my friend been passing back and forth for 15 years and never been on a car till now, 2 1/2 tubing with an X tube off a 78 camaro and some stainless steel borla knockoff mufflers that dump right in front of the rear-end.

next is the bed and to get the cab floor done.

Lightbulb little things gettin' done

got the floor finished and the firewall

steering is figured out, l changed the power to manual and had a few minor problems, but got thru 'em.
going slower than l want it to but at least it's going foreward.

friday l plan on taking it out to the local cruise in on the trailer. may not be running but l know this will help my motovation and give me a positive attude to forge ahead and get it done for summer.

me and a couple of friends are gonna mock it up right in the parking lot

l will post pic of it sitting at the cruise next week-end.

Arrow pics soon

got a burst of energy today and me and my friend got the bed braces welded in. we had to raise the back of the cab 1 1/2 inches to align the front fenders and to get the doors opening and shutting good.

l put some wheles l have for another project on and liked it so well l decided to run my 5-spokes and BFG's on her.

post some pic tommarow.

wiring is next on the list
