    yep we replaced the rear of the cab.

    it was just too dented up to ever make look nice.

    just because it's a low low budget build doesnt mean i want a turd with tires on it.

    Looking real good! I'm with you on the budget build but still making a nice car.
    Me: I don't know how to build a hot rod.
    Old Hot Rodder: You ever build a model car?
    Me:Yeah...
    Old Hot Rodder: Well instead of using glue you weld.

    adding length might be a good idea.
    i am 5.10 tall.
    next time i go to the shop i will get in it and actually try it on for size.
    thanks man.
    that WOULD be a heartbreaker.
    hop in my killer new ride and be uncomfortable?
