I'm trying to build a resto custom. The paint will be blue with a white. Early Classic supplied the 4/6 suspension. powertrain consists of 406ci and 700r4 trans. When completed I hope to drive it as much as I can.

Good to see other truck guys so close . I have a friend that lives in Canton. Maybe next time I'm up there we can meet somewhere. Kevin is also building a '65 fleetside. I'll try to get him to check out the forum.

Re: My build so far

I took my cab and doors to the soda blaster friday. He said that it would be ready for pickup on Monday. Can't wait to see it. I'll try to post some pictures when I get it back.

Re: My build so far

I have not made much progress lately on the cab. Started drilling the spot welds out for my old rockers and discovered that I need the dog leg pieces on the door hinge post. Those two pieces should be here Tuesday. That should give me enough time to get the bracing welded in. My brother-in-law found me a vintage 1965 Ga. tag that I'm thinking about running when the truck is completed.

Re: My build so far

I know it's the wrong but back around Christmas I saw a set of Texas truck plates that new. These things were still in the original paper. Price $75.00.

Re: My build so far

I started repairing the floor on my cab and this is what I found. Yep nice southern truck. I guess this is what makes it interesting. I took Alan's advice and cut the outer rockers off. Glad I went ahead and bought the dog leg pieces. More pictures to come after getting everything braced up.

Re: My build so far

My American Bulldog/Boxer passed away at twelve years old a couple months ago. And this is my new garage mut. Her name is Bailey and is full blooded American Bulldog.. She should be a pretty good sized dog. The mother weighted 80lbs. and daddy weighed 115lbs.

Re: My build so far

Kinda looks like what I started with. About $600 in metal, $50 in wire, hours and hours of welding and grinding and you'll have a good cab. You have to love it. You did'nt have anything to do anyway. Love the dogs. The pup looks like he just took a dump somewhere.
