Re: 65 long fleetside

Nice start! I like the yellow on these trucks. It seems we are going in similar directions with our builds. I like the bed wood!

Re: 65 long fleetside

Progress is break neck fast and precise. Which wiring harness are you using on the truck?

Re: 65 long fleetside

We're working pretty hard on her Bomp...I used a 145.00 harness from Speedway out of Lincoln, Ne. Works really well...very nice inexpensive well made harness.
