Very little done of late my friends.. But I'm geared up and excited to have at it tomorrow on this one.
Here is what's done so far, As expected... tons of clean up but it's coming round.

No theme yet..other then a More stock ride height and probably the same green as flat bed but all solid with no white two tone.
Maybe some trim though.. see where inspiration leads.
Thanks for looking.

Love it man, maybe flatter springs just to get it down that little bit. I actually set my dresser on a set of juggernaut springs for a week or so once to get them to flatten out, worked ok the dresser legs were as wide as the springs were long in between eyelets so it didnt smash them.

I liked that green maybe just a white roof for a breakup? not sure if you like that or not its been the one thing I still cant picture in my head for my 63 when it gets painted. I have even done a paint it sketch of the truck and painted it like 4 different ways and still cant come up with what I like best.

Thanks Taco
I think I will do a full custom fitting chassis for this one to help hunker it all down.

Since I went with a cowl hood, It may get changed up for colors now

On to some pics..
Lots of body work..even if ya can't hardly tell..lol.
Lots more yet to do.

Looking like this so far.

Sweet find! Looks perfectly scaled to the truck.

I always liked the solid white on these trucks with the trim on the sides, and chrome rims. Just seems like a clean look.

These look pretty good too, http://www.ebay.com/itm/191832270085?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageNa me=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
