Default 72 non super super truck build

Ok so I have a 72 super that I'm building into a truck. Its going good so far, me and a buddy of mine are working on it together as he has more rod building experience than I do. So I will post some pics and try to get everyone up to date as soon as I can.

Thanks for the kind words. This is a super cheap build too. As it sits right now I have less than 500 into the whole truck.

The back panel is out of a 2000's chevy truck and the back window is out of a 1950 5 window chevy. Going to start the bed as soon as I get the money for the metal.

Had to cut it down like 12" in the middle. Used 1/2" tube to make the corner of the cab.

I still have a long way to go, but I hope to get it in primer by the end of the month. Still have to pick out a color to paint it.

Well made some progress today on the truck, we extended the steering and got the stock gas tank out and modified it to work with the beam front end.
