    Thanks
    Did you have a truck there ?


    He did most of the work himself
    Even did the wiring harness modification for the fuel injection
    Now that it’s got working AC it’s his daily driver

    He said someone asked if the stripes were original, they had to be since they had dents in them
    “No, I just painted the stripes over the dents “

    He went to some class a body shop in Bremen hosted , to learn how to match patina, so the new paint looks old .

    I did, my truck was on the corner in the Carolina Truck Shop booth. I actually sold you guys a 73 grille.

    My friend Ian was probably who asked about the paint. He really liked the truck too. His truck was the step side with the 8.1 engine an impala dash.
