In reply to mr2s2000elise :

I like that a LOT. Not quite a Cab Over but more practical since you don't have to tip the body to check the oil.

Haven't made much progress on the build.

 

  • Mechanicals are done
  • Body needs to be done
  • Need to order fenders
  • Need to do bed
  • Need to do glass. 

Ran into this person today. Chatted him up a bit. His truck is my end goal. Gave myself 6 months to finisih it

Finally some progress. Ordered all parts. Hope to get it done in few weeks 

 

  • new 11 gallon gas tank to relocate tank further back 
  • new single piece power windows 
  • shave the steering rack to move it up 
  • new front coilovers to lift it slightly 
  • New wooden bed 
  • new tailgate 
  • couple of suspension and body parts 

 

if I can get that done in few weeks (while I wait for all back ordered bronco parts for the other build) - I can scoot this over to paint

Are you keeping the patina on the hood, or is it going to match?

I really want to keep the patina. Wife would love it if I did. Just can't visualize what colour to paint it, that work with keeping the patina.

Thank you. Initial thought was doing the period correct mellow yellow or a pistaschio green like on the hood. 

The big dollar cars are not the red/yellows any more (as old AARP geezers are dying off). Everyone is doing the nardo gray audi/porsche cement toyota colors. So debating which way to go with.

Hmm - I think a bright white or chill cement gray would be amazing.  I'm sure there are a ton of factory colors that would also be cool but not my area of expertise.
