Open Cab build

Post by primal4x4 » Mon May 06, 2019 2:13 pm

Considering how many years most trucks sit around untouched, it was neat to bring life back to this open cab and get it to a film shoot and the Piru event in a six week span from time of purchase. Just put this album together to show the build.

Fantastic Job!! looks great!!! Nothing better than the feeling when you get to drive it for the first time after restoration.
Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Thanks Pat. I live in the open desert, so short trail rides are great, really enjoying this truck. Down the road I will work on details, wiring harness, rebuild gauges, canvas, etc.

Awesome, and nice to actually have some place to drive them. Here, we don't.

Very nice job Ed. Hope things are going well with you. Thanks again for that 1/2 ton lower air deflector I bought from you a few years back at the Hollister meet. I bent it just right to fit like a glove for my 25” block conversion.

Thanks guys. It's been a number of years since I've made it to Hollister, looks like this the year, see you soon.
