I have to agree with 1960Hayes, that would look good. But then, I'm partial to headache racks anyway- That was the first shiny accessory that I put on my old Pete :-D. I've seen several cabovers around here with the headache racks that have the integral drom decks (like the Merritt Dyna-Drom) that look really sharp. Looking good Bullnose- hope to see you and the truck at one of the Pacific Northwest shows one of these days :-).

Thanks man! Your project is coming along nicely too. Makes me want to get a big truck to work on really bad! I just bought a F150, you can see it in the truck drawings section, so that has taken all my time and money right now, and yes I know how expensive it is! Also I'm only 16. But my freind has a few old White Freightliners that he's willing to sell for like 3000 each, and they're in good shape. Got to drive one once! So maybe in a few years that will be my project truck. heres some pictures, just for kicks!
