Re: PO has me PO'd

Looking good Jim. Stud idea on seat mounting is great. Makes installing carpeting a lot easier if you are going that route.

Thank you, but no, carpet only hold moisture and sand, perfect combination for rusting out my floor boards again. I'm thinking garden hose after a trip to the beach

Your truck is looking great, my shop is 14 by 18 but it is heated, so I can spend my time in a t shirt

My son offered to help finish my truck in april march, so it will be headed your way

That's not a good excuse Jim. Those of us without skills need our regular dose of progress.
