When I see the things you do to make sure everything lines up properly and has the correct setting position, The right finish and, oh, yeh, it needs new brake lines, but I gotta bend them myself, it makes me shudder to think of the thousands of customized vehicles that were put together in a way that, "Hey! Everything fits." One reason I never bought a customized vehicle. Now.............. this truck, when completed, is one that would be of interest 'cause ya know it was done and done right! Keep posting them there pitchers, Bobby!!

My doors and fenders getting bodyworked. These are really nice rust free, dent free 59 year old parts. 🙂

Nice solid doors and fenders. They never woulda lasted where I came from originally. New Jersey is generous with the use of salt.
I'm really looking forward to the finished product.

Nice work, Bobby. :) That is going to be one sharp-looking truck.
I hope so. I’m lucky to have my buddy Paul helping with the bodywork and paint.
I’ve never done one of my own cars this way but I’ve worked on cars that multiple people were involved in. My cars were always done a little bit at a time.
This one is being completely disassembled, complete new rewire, new engine and trans, powdercoated frame…I’ll probably wind up doing all new brake lines again. The front suspension has already been rebuilt. 😳
