Have never been a big fan of lowered duallys, but man that thing looks sweet! The color combo looks great!

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

Not much new progress. I picked up a set of alcoa's from board member Scoti, they really made a difference in the truck. It was nice meeting and chatting with you Scoti.
I also installed the rest of the door moldings and sent the radiator support to the powder coater.

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

Alcoas look much better. Do you have the trim for the dually fender? I have a couple sets if you need them

I've been waiting for the update. Did you polish them up any (I know they were due)?

Building a small, high rpm engine

like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

What are you going to do with the old wheels? New wheels look good!

Cool build.

Question about this picture.


I was under the impression when you sprayed on your epoxy and you got the areas where you did body work showing, you had to put another coat or two on until that went away.. The body work absorbed the expoxy. Will there be issues later??

The black is sealer, the primer will then fill all the bodywork scratches.

Yes, I might be. My little brother was looking some for his 92 F-350.
