Nice looking '53. Mine will never be that clean.

Sammons, The thing I like about the way Diamondbacks are made is that they can vulcanize the white walls on any tire so there isn't a thin layer of black to scrape off like Cokers. I want to see if they can add their WW to some mud & Snow tires for the back of my pickup. If not I'll just cut/grind another set of raised white letter tires.

Truck looks real nice Munch, you really squeezed that engine in there.
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Thanks guys, the truck sits on a S10 chassis and has a 5.1 LS. I started with the bare frame and have greatly enjoyed the build. Next is a five window conversion. I love the five windows...

I couldn't get everything to line up that nice on a stock frame.  :o I like the 5 window cab too except for chopped ones. The side windows look like port holes.  ::) Too bad you are so far away I have a 5 window top that's been removed. I think the inside pieces are there too.

Well great.  Took the truck to work today and on the way home I got rear-ended  >:(
In between lights rolling about 5-10 mph coming to a stop.  A f250 ran into me.  His front recovery hooks hit the bumper dead on.
Amazing how a low speed crash can hit so hard.

That is too bad. Ford guys are like that. They don't care about cars and run their crap into people who do. I hope it's just the bumper.

At least it was just the bumper and no sheet metal damage

Sorry Rattiac. Hope no one was hurt, sometimes it takes a day or two before you feel the effects of even a small crash. Hopefully the guy has insurance and you will get a brand new bumper.
 Watch it Sixball, I'm half a Ford guy ;D
