Radiator is working fine. I think I need to ventilate the inner fenders and let some air/heat out there.

Went to the street rod nats. Dad drove the truck to my house and then we commuted to and from Louisville each day ....about 1,000 miles total for the long weekend.

Headed to Frog Follies this weekend. Driving the whole way this time (it rode on a trailer last time).

Over 3,500 mles on the truck so far. Quite a bit of driving for a closed cab truck with no air.

When I bought my truck, I was told it had been a prop in an Alan Jackson video. I final found where it was....

Alan Jackson - The Talkin' Song Repair Blues
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0QxnN42ZC8

....right hand side of the screen at about the 1:04 mark and then again at 1:08.

If you didn't notice, it was before the frame swap and big wheels.

Here a few pics from yesterday at the Bunny Run in Jackson, TN. The truck now has almost 5,000 miles on it since the build.

It's kinda funny how lighting / surroundings have such an affect on what the wheels look like. ...color and size appear to change.
