Looks good man! How much glass did you have to lay? doesn't look like it was too much...you kept the sides (and some of the top portion) wood right and just sanded the corners? So probably about two layers (less than one full mat) of glass just for bracing support and structural design on the top huh? Came out Excellent. How long did it take you? Paint looks sweet too.

Looks nice, can you post some pics of it installed??? Would like to see them
In a world full of copycats, it's great to be an original!

I recognize that dash, gas tank location, and B&M shifter...I used to have a '68 GMC stepside...beautiful truck...til I hit a stray rotweiller and ruined it. Your project came out beautiful and you truck looks great from the inside.

Do you have any more pics of the glass being laid around the gauges, just curious how you got the shapes. Nice work .
