This weekends project....dove tail

Here some pics of this weekends project.

I got sick of smashing in fenders and replacing tail lights. Hope fully this helps...

















Not too much but i wanted to keep my inner fender wells and wanted to keep it somewhat street legal looking. :flipoff: Ill probably still smash them in but it was worth a shot.

Nope the axle is from a 80 wagonner.

Ps....the tires might be for sale in the spring

Hey Paiva.

Don't know if you remember me from Tech or not... but the truck is looking good. Nice job on the dovetailing. You still up at Tech or you finally get done? I'm going to guess your done since the pics don't appear to be Ho-Town... but whatever. Nice job.
