    We got one of those for cab work and for the chip trailers. It seems like it was close to 6,000 bucks for the whole setup but what a great tool to have around.

    Will know how good it is as start on rebuild of the Tool Box, be able to get used to how it functions and what to expect of it. MAY end up with buyer's remorse but will find out.

    There pretty easy. trick is finding a good source for rivets and collars. The polished stainless are pretty spendy.

    Little bit of bourbon, maybe more than usual, few keystrokes on the world wide web and I have went down a rabbit hole. Looks like a rivet gun device on steroids, might have to grab me one of these with starting small.

    Have a small amount of tweaking to do but------------that's what it will look like plus paint when done. Hood has a few irregularities and might have a few small waves when done but it's
    the best I can do.

    Looks amazing TS, someday hope to get to see it up close. I have an idea what it takes to fix up an old truck but not to do what you have to that thing.
