    SPECIAL THANKS FROM THEOWNER: “God first and foremost! Next, my mom for going in halves on the truck and letting me do what I wanted since she made me go out and work for what I wanted, which made me appreciate it much more. My wife, Vicky, and the boys for understanding the late nights in the garage and for always being willing to lend a hand. Jerry Gallery, who helped through the whole build, and Duane Olson of Viking Cycle Art who started the wood grain. Jason Haymaker who finished the wood-grain artwork and helped with everything that goes into putting a truck back together after the chassis. Dave Benck of PPG and Scott Lapham of Citrus Sew&Vac. Tommy Gloer, who helped plumb the air, and Frank of Auto Glass Plus. Ted Wiggins of Gibbs Upholstery and Sheik of Ofab for the paint booth. Rob Blower at B&M Automotive and Josh Welch of Welch's Chop Shop. Thanks to everyone along the way who helped inspire this build in some way!”
