Re: 65 long fleetside

Ok, so it's been awhile since I've posted any new pics or comments. STILL waiting on my fenders; bodyman has had them since OCTOBER 17th, 2017; and still have to clear the hood, paint the inner fenders, paint and clear the header panel and glove box door; install the carpet and a heater.

Getting frustrated; this is all that's left to do on her...
