Its officially...8 mile maiden voyage. No major issues, but a couple things to address.

First stop....the gas station.

68Gold/White...not sure if this drip rail removal is the best example. It looks like the previous owner removed the rail with a dull axle, then randomly welded the aftermath with a stick welder in the dark.

I added some more mig welds and some time with the grinder wheel. Then there is a "fair" amount of body filler in there to make it look presentable.

This is a sweet truck! I love everything about this build, especially all the DIY you put into it.
