Yes, BUT, your color is off, and its obvious. Also the fact that the rest of the truck is actual patina and your trying to copy it with fake patina.

Maybe I missed it, but what was the reason behind the new fenders? Did I miss it?

Because about 60% of the originals were bondo / fiberglass / matting. Not enough left to fit a patch panel to, and there are no decent used fenders anywhere near the rustbelt.

Put about 10 miles on it today

Bed's done and the final ride height is set:




There are a few things left to do: swap out passenger door for one with windows, fit passenger seat, route/neaten underdash wiring, noise insulation, etc.

Feels pretty fast, shifts awesome and is loud as fawk. Hoping some dynamat quiets the inside down just a bit. 1st gear just spins the tires, 2nd gear hooks up after a bit and 3rd still breaks the tires loose. This is all with a carb I'm having a bit of trouble with, heh heh.

Go tired of seeing it w/o the rocker panel.

Spending this week sorting out the little problems and getting more things finished up. I was putting dynamat on the firewall and found a huge tear in the cab sheetmetal. Remember how I said it had a bent frame and three of the four cab mounting bolts were bent? It seem like is also ripped the sheetmetal from the bottom of the A-pillar down to the vent in the kickpanel.

Looking pretty good. Is that water on the driveway or is it leaking?
