Re: MY build thread...

Just a teaser but I finally got to work on my truck again and welded in the door handle delete plates I made but I'm kind of broke after hawaii so it will be tough to get things done for a while I will have pics later tonight. Also did some polishing on my carb.

Re: MY build thread...

Did you weld up the joint on the hood? They look great! How difficult was that? I am thinking about doing that as well if it's not too dangerous (warpage)
