When my truck was done the first time. Not quite sure when, early forties or fifties though, but the cab seams were all filled with lead without removing the dents. There were some areas Wes pounded out that had over a inch of lead in them.

Wes is really old school, he picks and metal files everything. You can smell the metal as he works away its pretty interesting to see the way they used to do it. The metal just gleams after it has been reworked.

Started back on the body. Have a good buddy Wesley doing the body for me while I try my best to help him and keep ahead of him on everything else. Started off by making some more cab supports as the Murray body was all wood re-inforced

Its been a while that I've posted anything so one of the first things I have to say is hello to Homebrew! It was nice to meet you at the Superun in Saskatoon and hopefully our paths will cross again, I would also like to thank Jerry King Jr. for giving me the opportunity to push his nitro burner, it was something i'll remember for a long time. Jerry was a very nice guy old school to the bone. He sent me a nice signed picture of his and my car together. In all a amazing weekend.

I even got to light up my flamethrowers on the track.
