Two thumbs up on the grille. One for originality and one for creativity.

The grille looks awesome!

One question, are those air shocks, or just long shocks with no stroke left? I'm confused as they seem to be almost fully compressed but they're so long.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

So i was just looking at the pics of the truck with the grille and i saw your one windshield wiper...did you use the original wiper motor?

Thanks,

Your truck just keeps getting better and better man!
Thanks Snake Farm. I like the aged copper look.
I've seen it just get a deeper copper brown color which would be fine
by me. The truck will be in the shop when it's not on the road so I don't
know if it will do the green thing or not. Ask me in a year or two.
plus it's really dry here.

Thanks Chris. It's nice to have something work out once in a while.

Thanks for the comments. I think I went too small on the front tires.
I think I'll try again sometime soon.

Thanks for the compliment Mac. I started out duplicating the adjustable
louvers but it was too time consuming for my A.D.D. condition. And I didn't see the need for it.
