Default Finished my latest engine hauler

Been driving this one for many years and its proven itself quite well. The body was leaving it and the bed was shot, so I decided it was time for a makeover. Put new door skins and corners in her and built a 7 x 10 bed with lots of tie down rings. Just finished it up about a week ago in my spare time. Sure dont look like the old rusted 15 year old truck I've been driving all these years. Next up is building a jib hoist for it with a electric winch to load them heavy things with flywheels on them.

I think I would go right across the front of your new body with some sort of a cab protector, in case something got loose and headed for the back of the cab.
