59' GMC long bed

So today is the official start of the build. Loaded all the parts I have so far and dropped it off at the fabricators shop to work his magic.

Quick list of goodies: full Porterbuilt dropmember, 6.0 LS engine, custom backspaced wheels from The Wheelsmith.

Not sure how he did it. So far everything is being done by Vice in Hickory NC. Tim does great work. I believe he pulled it with a forklift.
