I have to say they look way better in person than any of the photo I've seen. Good Just Man!


Yes, tool box cover. Didn't realize at the time that this is where they were going. Thanks for the feedback.

Getting ever so close to finishing this project. Got to take my first est drive today and only had to pull the carb off once to clean and adjust the float. Also gave her just a bit more advance and she runs way better.

Took me two days to complete this Data plate. I hand etched with a razor everything. Not as 100% perfect as my OCD wants but my wrists can only do so much.... We had repros but wanted to keep this one atleast OE.

Well, your OCD certainly paid off. A very nice looking truck.
