Since I'm much older than my truck and my car, I'd say you're a classic. We don't wanna be antiques!

I'm 5 years younger than my truck (a '53 Binder) but according to my wife I'm older than dirt so I would say we're all a bit of classics

My plasm cutter came today. Would you believe theY ship it without a plug? I knew it was 110/220 volt but I did not realize it had to have a plug installed for which ever power supply you are going to use it with.

Today was spent roughing in a body mount for old Rusty. Third try and I got one that is going to work. Lots of finish work on it yet.

Is the grill getting painted or is it in the plating shop?

Wait until you see the pictures of my grille, it will make you cry, I know it does me. I have no idea why, don't ask me but when I tore the truck down 20 years ago I think I was planning on re-plating the grille being I wasn't happy with it's quality. But it WAS chromed, now it's been out side all these years and covered with rust.

Ok, so tonight I went out to put some more time into cleaning up my wrecking yard. Then spent a little time on the truck. I cut the top of the door off on the passenger side and will next section it so I can install it and finish the top chop. I also chased the threads on the cab and door and installed the hinges on that side. I now can put aside all the extra hinges I had having picked out the best four.

You can't believe what a kick this is to do things like cut this window frame off.

Brian

It may be cost preventative and I don't know about the quality but they do reproduce it in Chrome.

Personally I like them just fine painted.
