    Thanks for the kind words guys. It is turning out better than I planned when I started over 7 years ago. Might not be a ridler winner but I think will turn out better then a lot of stuff I see out there. Not bad for a garage family build I must say.

    Ran out of compound still early in the polishing stage, panels aren't perfectly flat and got a bit of a orange peel look on the back panel.

    The cab looks great, the Ridler is for trailer queens anyway!

    To be fair it will be a trailer queen for the first year or two.

    Got the cab all detailed up this is how it'll look basically.

    Here's a reflection selfie off the back of the cab.

    Then we had my uncle come up who spent his career as an art teacher, he taught us a bunch of stuff about art and color wheels and helped us decide on upholstery colors, Now we are pulling the engine again soon and tearing it apart cause it needs to be repainted. It was orange when I got it and I just knew I didn't want it black or purple so I left it alone... Total pain in the ass but it needs to look like we had a plan and knew what we was doing.

    Nice work on the engine! Whose front drive system is that? It's very clean with the blackout with polished internal surfaces!

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.
