Default My Homemade C-cab..

Well here we go.. I had been dreaming of building a C-cab for years... The Pizza Wagon and Ice truck was always on my mind.. I love the old Show Rods from the 60's and 70's.. And seen where they was dieing off.. I was going to do the Pizza Wagon.. But was told it won't be mine..So I decided to do my own.. I have a ton of pictures and will take me a while to post them all.. Feel free to jump in at anytime..Thanks..

I first had the plan to build this buck out of wood then use it to do a fiber glass body.. But decided to go with steel.. Since I had everything done with the wood the way I liked it.. I took it apart in used it for a template..Made thinks even easier..That's my son cutting the wood out for me..
