Awesome looking project you have there, we to are starting a pickup build, will keep an eye on this build throughout :)

 

All pickups are worth saving.

You are a very brave man, it looks like the only things you can save are the roof and the back of the cab.

Sounds a little bit like the build we are doing the roof will need replacing but should be able to save the front and back bulkheads.

Looking at the original shell, I would have no idea where to start! Good effort so far, look forward to seeing progress as I love pickups!

This is one hell of a build looks like just mocking the parts makes it look better. Will be watching this one, along side doing out own pickup build...
