Re: Lets see some before and after pics

Got my 79 from my dad last Christmas. It's a daily driver, and definitely still a work in progress...

Nice truck. I saw the houses in your pics, and thought they look like houses in Texas. Then I saw that you are in Texas. My daughter lives in Keller , Texas.

Re: Lets see some before and after pics

So far just a clean-up, tires, plate and removing bed toolbox are the only things you can see. Has new tranny, interior and soon to have new 350 crate. Plans include a mild lowering, hopefully before too long.

Re: Lets see some before and after pics

Here's my truck, before and now

When I got it:




Thought the stepside was ugly and the tube grille killed it for me, so then I traded $100 and my old bed for a fleetside bed, and traded the grille for a stock grille


Then that grille broke, thanks to a tree or something out in the woods, then I put a '74 grille on it. And here it sits now...
