    Jack, That is great. Thumbs up for great detail and fantastic body work. It must be nice to do your own body work and get results like you have. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That engine looks SWEET! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    But how long is that upper radiator hose? That thing looks like it could hold a half gallon of coolant all by itself! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    looks unique, very clean bodywork. again, not my thing, but hey, its also not my truck.

    one question though, how long do you expect the 10 bolts to hold up?

    I didnt mean to say the truck was ugly. The work that you put in is great and you did a very good job. I just prefer the stock look.
