    After five years it is finally done! Could not have done it without some very timely advice from all the guys on this site. For those of you who have just started your projects, hang in there . There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Looks great !

    Not many guys want to do original restorations anymore ,but it looks like you appreciate the time & work that goes into keepin' 'em original & you did a pretty good job at doin' it. :D

    Very, very nice and I'm surprised Nate isn't asking about the 69 in the background of the interior photo.

    Keep it on the road!

    Beautiful...now keep it on the road and keep up the weekly, monthly, and yearly checks...or it gets harder as you get older to redo it all over again...As a famous person once said....I love it when a plan comes together!

    Beautiful job! Love the color.

    The "stick a fork in it" pictures give all of us who "need to leave it in the oven awhile longer" something to look forward to.

    Antiques are meant to be driven! Saw an AD on the road yesterday morning bright and early, just had to thumbs up, smile and watch it go by.

    Blue paint color code ?

    Your truck is beautifully restored. I wonder if you could provide the blue paint color code ?

    Thanks Martinius.
