not sure why but it looks like some of my pics flipped upside down. door panels for instance, the flames are at the top.

thanks funky, much appreciated! I love the v6 and a 3 on the tree was the first vehicle I learned to drive so I figured my boy might as well do the same. lol

a little more accomplished.. i bought billet knobs for the headlight,choke and wiper switches and redrilled them to fit. i also made the mount for 4” speakers in the dash(not to worried about looks with it since its hidden). Made the lower panels for the doors which will hold the 6x9s. The panels will be cover with black vinyl like the seat only I am having my shop name embroidered in them in between the speakers.
I also got everything removed from the inside and am ready to start the bodywork and get it ready to refinish.

Cool truck! I've been planing a similar build in my mind all summer, now getting ready to start in a month or two!

Thanks! Planning it is what I like best! That may be because I run a collision shop and have to do it every day which takes the fun out of the actual work😂.

I know this is the wrong brand but here is a before and after of my current truck. I did it back during the spring.

I know some will hate this but my boy wants a good stereo system😂. I am putting in a kenwood excelon head unit along with 4 kenwood 6x9, 2 kicker 4” in dash being driven by a polk amp. Yesterday I covered the lowered door panels and broke out the plasma cutter on the doors😳😂. there will be an oval nickel badge placed in between the speakers once they are finished and sent to me. Now that its finished, I tore everything back out and am ready to get started on the body itself.

That is an awesome build!! We have some lucky children! My 14 year old and I are trying to get our 65 ready for him as well! It’s gonna be hard for me to hand over those keys though. 😂
