Re: The Snortin' bull

The shifter I wanted to appear almost as original.I decided to try an American Shifter. So far so good. Well made and came with plenty of parts.It is a dual action also .Instead of a push down center button you just lever it to the side a bit to shift .

Re: The Snortin' bull

Got the inner fender's back in.These have been trimmed to fit the frt modded frame and aligned to core support. Set bed gap tight with a little clearance as stock frame is gone and no flex is going to occur.I think this look's good. Even though the truck is to look like a derelict old truck on the side of the road in the end trying to get the panel's looking good and fitted.
