I'm curious as to why you boxed in the underside of the cab.
But I guess I'll see as you go on.

Geezerman: Those boxes are the running boards at the bottom of the doors on the 55-59 Chevy trucks. AMT just left a big open gap there.

That looks very sharp and opening the grille really makes a difference. I'm not crazy about dualies but I will keep an open mind for this one.

Lookin' real good. I love it. Keep up the great work. I'm still stumped as well as your plans for the back. Wrecker? Camper? Flatbed? Hehe
