    Really liking the build Herb. Honestly did not like the look of the truck when I first saw FF was creating one but have seen their completed one in the beautiful blue and it’s really nice. Totally changed my mind and can’t wait to see more trucks built and know yours will be a beauty!

    Here's a pic of my door panel
    its only in the rough state , lots of work to go
    trying to keep in line with the dash
    it will of course be covered in same leather and chestnut burl
    window up and down switch will go in the door handle towards the upper front
    And the round hole will be filled with a speaker
    But have a look anyway .

    Herb-

    Everything is looking really nice. I admire your craftsmanship! You know, as nicely as the door card is turning out, you might consider selling something like that! HA...

    You do nice work, and I am enjoying following your progress!

    Regards,

    Steve
