I really like that red. That is such a neat truck. You do good work! You arent going to have a cookie cutter truck. Keep posting pics, I love the truck and the 327 is the best small block ever made in my opinion.

x2!!

Truck's lookin' real good so far, Rev! Keep up the good work!

Wonder if you might not find some curved sections of similar shape to bolt on the ends of that bumper...Might look pretty good if it's the right width.

Regards,
Shea

Looking great! That poster is cool; especially the part about the 104 horsepower. I think yours will do a little better than that!

i like the straight bumper -- id probably just lengthen it straight across --- but it is your truck -- i think itll look fine all said and done - reminds me of a push bar -- very practical for an international IMO

ok, couple things done today. nothing picture worthy. First i picked up the clutch and the pilot bushing. big whoop I know. The other is I decided what wheels to run. I cant find any pics of them, but ill give a brief description and if anyone has pics let me know please. They are stock chevy truck wheels from the mid 70s through the mid 80s. they are solid aluminum and always have a beauty ring around them. Look amazing when painted the same color as the truck. I think i can get those reasonably cheap.
Heres where I need opinions again. I have a spare bed for this truck that I picked up as a trailer for $100 a few years ago. It has the notch out for a spare tire. I kinda dig that, especially when the wheels all match. Changing the fender is easy enough, but does "kinda digging" something = that much work?

Yes.

Otherwise you wouldn't even be working on a old pile of rust....
