Amazin' progress.

Craftsmanship is like we see here from Camaro Zack. (the wonderkid of metal)

I spotted the proper liquid pusholine in the background of a pic in post #28 (A build secret is uncovered, low stress, fine work...)

Supervising can sometimes be difficult, I like using all the tools at my disposal.

Trevor sent me a text today with this picture attached. I texted him back and said "I guess you're going to be one of THOSE guys"

His response was "I Guess so"

He would normally not put a sticker like that on his truck.

My bet is that his girlfriend Cortney gave it to him and he didn't have the balls to say no to putting it on his truck

Oh thank god he labeled it. We can’t have people thinking it’s a transplanted Kubota!

Probably gonna run around with his tow mirrors out too.

It wasn't a Kubota, it was a Yanmar

He's got these 80's vintage, obnoxious, chrome plated mirrors that stick out farther than a peacock's tail when he's trying to impress a hen.

A lot happens in 6 months, and here's what's happened in these last 6.

I'm still living in a RV in Florida, Laura is still living in our house in NJ trying to sell it, and after almost 3 years of work, Trevor has finished his truck build and I am told it rolled out of the shop2 days ago and hasn't returned.

Can I get a Hallelujah?

The truck is not really my cup of tea but what would have happened if my dad told me I couldn't put a 4-53 Detroit in a '59 powerwagon when I was 26 years old. It's Trevor's truck and it's what he wanted so I just stand back and watch (and occasionally voice my opinion).

I'm really proud of the quality build he did on this truck. There are a lot of man hours and money in this truck. I hope it it all he wished for.

Neil was quite influential on this build and I'm sure his part in this build is not over yet.

So here are a few pics of the truck, i'm living in the boonies with limited internet so bear with me.

Looks real nice. Ought to last him a long time if taken care of. Just one more thing you do have to worry about now.
