That's one other than a Mack I'd have. Fraid I'd have to ditch the rear fender though as I've never really been fond of the style.

Looks like a really nice restoration.

Wonder how it'd look with a Volvo grille????? I'd make him a good deal on one!!!

There is a reason they only build 244 of those ugly trucks.

Nah. The ole "Trusty, yet Crusty" Dodge has always brought me home. Had a little delay outside of Indy once a couple years ago when it and the fourth deer got together on I70, but other than that has never "failed to proceed" under it's own power.

Now for the real story-

Shoulda seen him when informed we were going to straighten that hood and reuse it. I'll check on his progress later today as he's been at it all night. He knows how little filler I'll allow in a job so he's a bit nervous.

Nope need to get more for the rest of the front end

Well I have resigned myself to thinking that if "Gorilla Tape" is good enough to repair Other Dog's blow up dolls, it's good enough for the ole "Trusty, yet Crusty" Dodge.

I'll get more tape.

The glue separates from the fabric with the application of heat and the tape lets go. That is about the only fault I've experienced. It is however, a very good product.
