    Well really did not think about that enough until you asked about the size differance, rear gears,etc etc The 60's would look better, but doing hypothetical math the bigger tire would 1/4 mile trap rpm seemed too low Was going for the resale "look" vs performance Well see if I was right or wrong this spring

    Believe it or not,this is just Red Rustolem, Lots and lots of prep and sanding work, no filler all metal Prep is everything, I wish it could be a little cleaner environment but hey it is what it is for a $1,000 truck and just waisting time in the garage Paint is just color, , and finish is just smoke and mirrors for the eyes So lots of clear and a good buff, makes $200.00 worth of material to a long way It will still be a 20 footer when finished, and that's ok be wise it was soooooo dan ugly to start with
