Thanks Tom, trying to liven up the board some. Here it is a little closer to being finished.

Looks pretty cool Brandon. Sorry I missed you at Cortland this year. Next time I'm down Bingo way I'll look you up. I'd like to get a closer look at your fleet!

Thanks Stan, you're welcome over anytime. After a few more very long days, and even longer nights, we rolled into to Homer early in the morning before the show. This is the 3rd time id ever driven the truck, and she made made the journey well.

After its big debut at Cortland, it was time to get back to work. I hadn't done any work to the rollback body itself, as my main focus was getting the truck itself going. After changing a bunch of hydraulic hoses, and getting some paint on it, here it is after running the body back for the first time.

Nice project. That looks like that will be a handy truck to have around. How are you going to keep all of your friends from wanting to borrow it to move something?

Looking good Brandon!! Besides a show truck I'm sure this will be really handy to have around for picking up new projects!

Thats admittedly part of the plan, to get some side work with the truck which will help pay for the hobby.

Jumping forward a bit. Since yesterday was such a nice day, I decided to get the 358 fired up and moved around a little. Once I had a it running, I couldn't resist a ride up the road a bit. After i got back and had it parked where I wanted it, I even managed to get a few things done to it that needed attention. I took a step back and realized that this resembles a picture I took earlier this year before the rollback was together. Quite the comparison.
