for the break-away mirrors... the nylon backings get dry rotted and brittle... you have any ideas for replacements or reproducing them? it looks as though you might have done something there since you kept yours.

I love the way that you body dropped the bed. I like the Ford tailgate portion being put into the drop.

Alright, I have to admit, I'm pretty impressed!

I like the FORD in the back of the bed and I really can't wait to see the dash when it's done.

I think it's awesome to see people think outside of the box and come up with something unique.

I've never been much of a fan of the low riders but DANG!

That's some pretty slick fab work. You have my admiration sir.

I give it a 5 star thread and reputation, you got a pretty good idea of what you're doing.
