When it comes to custom metal work, anyone can drastically alter a truck or car for a dramatic response, and there are plenty of them out there. But do you want a vehicle that's well thought out and proportioned with clean lines, or the opposite, with a bunch of people gawking at the show because it's crazy looking? Granted, this is all a matter of taste, but custom metalwork is often a good place to exercise the "less is more" school of thought. Remember, the idea is to improve on what Detroit did or didn't do; those who find no fault in a truck's factory design tend to restore.
The Roadster Shop has honed in on this over the years and built a reputation on their good ideas and even better craftsmanship. In this installment on Mike Crimaldi's '53 F-100, we're taking a look at some of the changes to Henry's design toward the back half of the truck that might be overlooked or unnoticed if we didn't point them out. Follow along and get your wheel spinning, or call up the Roadster Shop and have them do it for you!
