Thanks for the greeting and encouragement Kim. All the best with your cab work. I really like seeing a TF cab perched on a stand getting straightened and cleaned. And when you can do it yourself, it makes all the difference.

Thanks, still working on that one. I think the front end is about where I want it. Now I just need to get the rear done.

The Task Force series trucks have a look all their own. Lowered, lifted, customized or restored I like them all....

Does anyone know what kind of pickup these inner wheel wells are from? Or what wheel well to use.

Don't know but they look cool. I was wondering if the tank filler is better off to the one side rather than smack in the middle?

Looks good but not real practicle. I have a fuel cell in my coupe and have to unload the trunk on trips to get gas. Now I see things like that as a potential hassel. I want to be able to go to a car show or swap meet and not have to unload the box to get gas.

Check with No Limit Engineering , they have gas tanks that have the filler tube outside of the bed or in the fender. My filler is in the center of my bed about 10 inches from the tailgate BUT I never put anything in my pickup(kind'a useless) but the new wood dosen't get scratched up that way.

Mellon I posted up so it would be easier for you to find this thread.I have not posted for a while as I have been spending all my time in hospitals with my wife in her fight with cervical cancer.I have the CCP power assisted steering still in the box and a new 4l80e transmission for my 58 but no time and no money to work on it right now.I live in the mountains 250 miles outside of Las Vegas so we drive in on Monday and drive home on Friday to be with the kids.We just finished 6 weeks of chemo and radiation treatments.We almost lost her last week when she got a infection with her white blood cell count at .5(normal is 15) and her blood pressure dropped to 61 over 30 so keep us in your prayers.
