09-16-2010 01:02 PM Updates......
Been a while since the last post.Still working on the truck.Moved to the interior for now.Started making all the panels and such that I will need.I also got the steering wheel I wanted for the build also.I started by making simple door and kick panels.All the panels are thin panel board that will get final finished/shaped when I get to the actual upholstery part of the build. I glued up some boards to make my arm rests too.

08-08-2010 10:43 AM Shrinking the hood
I spent 4 evenings shrinking on the hood at this point.I had to fight with a few areas,but I finally got it to do what I wanted.The sheet metal has more smaller wrinkles in it,(nothing that cant be filled with a minimal amount of body filler),but the hood is solid,not stretched anymore,and the profile looks like it belongs.Still need to work on the rear edge to finish the metal working part .......for some reason I tried to figure out how much time I have in the hood,and it scared me,at this point,I have almost 30 hours in just the hood.........
