Thanks,I like your truck also.I just like modifying vehicles.I have been trying to find a pic of the first custom I did when I was 16.It was a 1964 4 door Buick special but it was a 2 door hatch back when I finished it.It got a lot of attention at the local drag strip.The announcer said"here comes what used to be a 64 Buick special,but God only knows what it is now".

Thanks a lot. I will get more done when it warms up. With the disease I have it makes me freeze when others are just chilly so I can't get a lot done now.

Me too, it took a little bit to grow on me, at first I didn't get it, but with all the other mods, the tail lights for instance, and the bumpers, I REALLY dig this truck!

I'm really diggin' this build.

But then I have a soft spot for one piece pick-ups.

I think that 2 ElCaminos and a Ranchero is dangerously close to a sickness

Thanks to all. I really like Car/trucks too.LOL. I knew when I started it that until I got to a certain point some people would not get it.I know even when it is finished some won't like it,but like I always say,If you are building your car like other people want it then you are not building your car. I think it is a great complement when other people like my work but I build what I like because I like it and unless you are building for resale you should build what you like also.
