Thanks for all the kind words. A little more paint done. Working on the heat shield and started the rear bumper. It's coming along

Nice job! What size pipe did you use to French in the turn signals? I really like the look!

Re: 55 Chevy Truck Build...Finally

Nice work and attention to detail. Curious, what size of tire are you running?

DSRAVEN...18x9 front 19x12 rear wheels. I believe 30 ratio. I own a commercial cabinet shop, I put a lift in the end of my building and work there evenings and weekends. I started this build and bought a 67 camaro to drive while finishing so I had something to go to shows with. It was an older resto and laquer cracked and ended up redoing it and have now been back to the truck. Hope to have it mostly done by Nov. as brother already paid for Scottsdale Goodguys entry LOL. Thanks for the compliment on the color!
