Re: 1940 "project moonshine"

Love the truck! I always get the "When are you going to paint it?" or "Are you really finished with it?!?" Questions.

Re: 1940 "project moonshine"

Your 40 looks fantastic just they way it is... I think if someone needs to paint something it would be the frame showing on your dually...

Re: 1940 "project moonshine"

Chizzler,

Is there anyway you could post pictures of the hood latches that are attached to the fire wall. My truck does not have any and I am wondering if there is a way to fabricate one or if you know of a place that sales them aftermarket? Thank you for your help.
