Yes, I still need a hood and brake lights among more little things.....Just haven't been motivated to work in the garage as of late. When you work on vehicles all day long its hard to go home and do it some more.

So I dropped the truck off at a buddy's place. I think for the first time in all my builds I have brought my truck somewhere and am having somebody else make/build something for my truck. Or atleast having somebody do something on there own and not just having help. I am getting the hood made, I by no means am a sheet metal worker lol.

Looks like a fun time.










Is it time for a new cab yet or are you going to tube it out the rest of the way?
