    Yeah, all nice but I really love that bottom red/white number! Super exciting, do you have access to a big car spray shop?

    Thanks my friend.
    I was really digging on the red truck myself.
    No on the professional spray shop, I do it all in my little garage or out side on the pad...bugs and all...ahahahaa

    Thinking I Finally made up my mind on some color too.
    Going to try to do a patina paint job and make it look legit...Body has more filler/Bondo in it then expected.
    Pretty wavy and other blemishes to boot.
    As Ive no plans to get rid of this one..I'll get it cleaned up for now and have some fun with it. Then later years I will go ahead and start some serious body work and ordering of fresh metal.

    Thanks for following along on the build and journeys of this lil truck.
    Run what Ya Brung.

    Thanks n00b.
    No clue what I'm doing...but it's so much fun..... ahahahaa

    It's the latest craze in the Rat world looks like. So I had to give it a go myself.
    Be extremely different for looks in my area.
    I cant wait to get going on the logo for panel area..hehehee.. tie it all together.
    Also thinking slot mags and 50's now for wheels and tires. ?????? I like Fat tires on ole chevy's.
    See what transpires in the next week or so.

    Thanks my friend.
    Transit van would be a fun rat rod project. Their getting more popular here in the states as a theme and dare to be different.
    Main thing is....Have fun and build it your way.
    Any thing goes now for Rat rod stuff.

    Lets see.....
    Plans are for a bright Red and White two tone interior.
    Not weathered....lol
    That should also tie in the Red/White pinstripes I have planed for exterior detail.
    Still need to round up the miscellaneous drive train parts needed.
    Still under 1,200 dollars for the Fun Budget Build so far but a new windshield is going to cost some $$$$$

    In the mean time.... Ive a ton of wet sanding and blending still do on passenger side. ugh

    Running out of warm weather and time.
    Thanks for looking and the comments.
    More soon.
    Run what Ya Brung.
