Default My version of a 53' chevy p/u

Well I about have enough parts rounded up to start another project. I had a cab given to me years ago, I bought a S10 for a $100.00 and I picked up a complete front clip at the swap meet last weekend for a hundred so its time to clean off some floor space.LOL I have a single pic of a truck that I liked and is gonna be my inspiration. Im gonna put my 53 on a S10 frame and run fenders but its gonna be low and no running boards and a chop, so here a few pics of the parts and what my intentions are but will make them my own.

Thats a very cool truck for inspirations. But also a whole lot of work to get it to that point.

sounds like a solid plan.... I enjoyed your first build and I am sure this one will be great too.. but definitely agree with dragfink.. sectioned.. pretty heavy section.. maybe like 4-6"
