    I notice something new every time I look at your truck and I like it. Are you going to close the gap between the box bumper and the fender with the stock rubber flap or similar? How much is left to do? I hope you plan on taking us for a ride with some video and a walk around!

    Thank you, I'll probably just put the rubber flap back on. I think I have a couple more weeks of putting the truck back together. Planning on taking it to a car show in mid August!!

    Thank you. I love 359's that are done right. The truck the Pickett bros built is absolutely awesome! If you have a dream go after it!
