Nice truck! And all the power you'll ever need to get to/from the Cars & Coffee shows. Leave it rusty please, I love the look.

That's good. The 1st gen batteries were their Achilles' heel.

I notice you prefaced one of your posts "December 8". Is this project further along than the images & descriptions suggest? (I have no problem with that... better to be reading a project in the past that has maybe already been successfully completed than a "live" ongoing project that doesn't end up getting finished!)

EDIT: never mind. I see in your first post you say " Today I was able to drive it for the first time." So you're further along than the images show.

ALSO...

What's your motivation for this project? Just curious.

Thank you! The first album link posted by Daox only shows me my own album for some reason.

This is hilarious, ridiculous, and awesome all at the same time. Somehow looking where you're joining that unibody to the c-channel frame just makes my day.
