I heard that he's still waiting for the 22" 160-spoke gold-plated rims wrapped in Toyo Proxes. Something about them being backordered at Bellargio.

LOL... I can't afforrd tires and rims yet. Actually I am in no rush for them until after the winter. The truck will not fit in the garage after they are installed and I have a lot to do still. I'm sure the snow will be here soon.

Mike just bear with me.

Wow.. havent checked this thread for a bit and it looks like Randy is actually, almost, nearly, quite possibly ready for the 2008 Memorial Day D-90 Gathering.

Looking good Randy!

Here is an updated pic of the truck. Please excuse the junk in the pic, no time to clean lately, between work and assembly.

i have not posted any pics in a long time and was kind of bored today.also in the last pic on the end (i would like opinions on this) instead of using rivts i used stainless button head bolts w/thin plastic washer. im not sure if i like the look or not. let me know what you guys think?also lost my job last week not sure if i will be able to finish the truck-so a ccouple of questions. what do you guys think i could get for the 90 as it is ? might get more if i complete (but it will cost me more and i cant bring myself to cut corners just to save money an finsih it)opinions and advice would be great!

ST doors with painted tops. I think the tops look much better body color, as I don't have the black soft top to match the door tops.

Thanks Randy. It has been hard to get to this point, but the hard work is done. All I basically have to do now to get it running is install the front end, put in the water separator, and finish wiring the engine to the main harness, all of which will be a piece of cake.

Chris

Got the front end on. Had to really chop the front panel to fit the Allard intercooler, but it will all be hidden by the grill and winch. Put my new rockware bumper on to test fit today. Brand new, and is already starting to rust all over. Nice bumper, but def. the worst coating job I've seen on a bumper.
