IMG_1234.JPG  IMG_1235.JPG  IMG_1236.JPG  IMG_1237.JPG My steering wheel came apart (that's a 1st for me)so I replaced it with a Grant. Mirrors are on and the bed, grill, and rear fenders are in epoxy primer. I hope to finish the body work and paint it in the next few weeks. As you can see by my home-made downdraft booth, humidity is a factor as to when I can spray

Kurganhunter,

YOU are making great progress.

And that temporary paint booth may not be climate controlled, but you are not spraying things in open air, so it's a step up.  Not a paint booth, yeah, but most of us can't afford a booth of our own

Lookin good!

Keep at it and slow and steady will get you there.

This is going to be a great looking truck and you are doing the work yourself which deserves a Well Done. Can't wait to see the progress and the finished product.

Looks great! I am about 100 steps behind you! I just removed the bed and running boards on my mom's '54' to have them blasted. I am hoping to get front tore off next. Then i can remove the drivetrain. Keep up the good work! I love the paint booth and i think we will all pray for less HUMIDITY

Looks GREAT! I can't wait to see the bed on it with the dual wheels! I just tore down my mom's 54 five window 3100 and had the bed, fenders, and running boards blasted. No real rust but a lot of hidden damage! Going to have a lot of long nights pounding out dents and working the metal back into shape! I can tell you have put alot of work into your truck keep it up I know from experience that the realization that your almost done feels awesome!

They are never finished. Even here (above pic) the tailpipes have not been cut back nor have the tips been put on. I also added remote battery lugs on the pass side  of the bed. Doing all new L.E.D. lights this weekendIMG_1311.JPG
