Yes sir, doing great. Truck is coming along nicely. Need to take some pics and post. Interior is in and looks great, Jake drove it over to the wash rack a couple days ago and rinsed it off. He's gonna have her finished within a month so i will have a lot of pics to post once she's got her wheels on and sitting out in the sun.

A few more pics of the finer aspects of this project. Jake painted the air tubes on the engine to match the overall paint scheme of the truck. I was pleased to see how they turned out.

Looked at the first post on this thread, it's been a year and 5 months on this project, not for the faint at heart. Still a ways to go but we are getting real close.

He is a great driver, been with us a while. He is currently driving a 2018 Pete 389 if that tells you how much he likes this truck. They are specing some items for him. (i.e., the tall shifter came out of his older truck)

Today is roll out day, I may have time for lots of pics since the sign guy has a case of the drag butt getting to us with signs that were ordered a week ago.

Gotta get her rinsed off and shiney, then down to the railroad overpass for some woodline shots.

Roll out delayed, Jake is working today to try and finish. Truck still has to be rinsed off and prepped. I will have time now since my boss decided to wait on registration.

Told him my ideas on photo shoot setup using 2 of our nicer trailers, one has purple decals and the other black. Hopefully this week won't be too wild for us so I can get it done.
