I'd be happy with the stainless hood latches on the 4th one.

Those are not stainless but chrome-plated PAI short ones. Have a tendency to show out rust traces from the pin joints after some use outside.

Thanks. Vlad, I do see some rust on that one now.    Watts sells ones I thought where stainless, expensive but prob worth it.

Prob the same ones. You can always check with a magnet. 304SS doesn't catch at all and 430 makes some tendency to glue up but way less than regular (chrome plated) steel does.

These hoods haven't been out in the daylight for a while. Just getting a thicker layer of dessert dust, maybe have them out this fall.

 

You should have posted those two pictures individually so I could like each one!! Those are some nice lookin hoods (and probably the rest of the truck too).

Is the 755 emblem custom? Not that I know much but I’ve never seen a 3 digit model number on a b model emblem. By the way both are beautiful trucks.
