    I was able to put some work in on the truck over the Holidays. I fabricated these bumper brackets, shaved mounting holes, to a a smoother looking bumper. Now I have to find a good chrome shop.

    I hope so, because I know to have it chromed is not going to be cheap.

    And you don't want a cheap chrome shop, I had some valve covers done at a shop some years ago and they developed little rusty spots afterwards.

    Eliminating carriage bolts is always a good thing. I usually find they have to be drilled out, regardless of applying heat and penetrating oil, holding the heads with vice grips, etc.

    It's starting to look like a truck, cool. I like your choice of wheels too.
