    A beautiful truck that looks 'just right'.
    It's neat, and not in the least over the top into gaudy.
    Very well done.
    I too would be happy to have it parked in my driveway.
    And I too have enjoyed following the build.

    Thanks for showing it all to us.

    Today was the Day ! I took the Truck for a ride. Went about 8 miles for a shake down run, all went well. Have to calibrate the speedo, top speed was 20 mph on the speedo at about aprox 50. Plan to keep doing short runs and checking for anything that might be going wrong, loose or need adjusting.

    Yep! That's PERMAGRIN! It will fade away with time, but then will come back as the memory triggers it again and again! Congratulations! You've done an AMAZING job on the truck!

    Now it's time to go get a load of mulch for the landscaping out front!!
