Great to hear back from you balthazar, the truck I purchased does look nice but the closer I look the more I find that needs to be done ( nature of the hobby I suppose ) I'll be in south NJ Sept. 3rd - 5th and if possible I would enjoy getting together. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you would care toshare your contact info. I haven't actually "seen" your truck as I can't view your photos in the forum for some reason. In reading your thread I've admired your commitment to keeping it original and correct to the vehicle, shiny while nice doesn't help it run, Great job !!
