    This is my 88 d100 build. I got the truck from Louisiana fairly straight 0 rust but paint was horrible. It had a v6 originally know has a fresh 340/727 in it with 3.23 Gear. Ground up build all new suspension, AC system all new brakes all new. To much to list here are a few pics.

                    What a gem! Sleeper blue, nice little small block that will surprise a lot of folks. You body guys make me jealous, you make it look so easy, pictures can't describe the time involved. And you have a helper! Great job on keeping the youth in the hobby, and getting some knowledge in that head of his. I try with my granddaughters, but they don't like the dirty part of it. Great job on the truck!

                              the truck turned out extremely nice ! I was wondering if the repalcement floor covering was a rubber mat? If yes who was your source. I'd prefer to that to carpet but haven't been able to source it. Thanks
