Adam hasn't been able to make much progress, especially today since I kept him busy as we worked on my "new" truck.

Just keeps looking better with each pic. I hope that the rest of the restore is just as nice. I have no doubt that it will be.

Wow! That's looking great. The new tires and freshly painted wheels really compliment the work you've done so far.

I just picked up a set of decals from the old bolens guy yesterday. I hope to install them soon but i still have to paint the white portion on the grill.

I agree, that's better than new. The old girl sure should be proud of her cosmetic enhancements, and you guys should be proud of a job very well done! :thumbs:

Wow! That looks great! Just remember to take the 'warps' off the back tires so it can get traction! LOL Thanks for the update!
