Re: Danny Boy is BAACK! w/ '55 Big Window

Truck looks great.
I flipped my bumper because I felt it fit the body better. Was able to get it closer.
Made my own mounting brackets.

Re: Danny Boy is BAACK! w/ '55 Big Window

Wow, I’m flattered. Kim & Bam you have some of the absolute best chops of all the talented guys here. Thank you SO much!

So far it’s about a 80-20% split of paying others (too damn much) vs. me doing any meaningful work so my truck isn’t in the same class as yours but I’m gonna love it.

I checked on her today, they were installing the rear window chrome lock strip but it got messed up. The “chrome” is a foil over the rubber/plastic of the lock strip and it started to separate. I’ll have to R&R it myself later. But I have the special tool and I know how to do it (as badly) as they know.

Front bumper stays as they originally installed it. I think the reason it looked odd is it’s WAY lower than it was before.

Today:
