No. Lowered with a rake so it still looks like a truck.
Scott posted pix of his truck, go see them.
That's a truck.

I will not be chopping the top (sorry John) and I don't want her in the weeds.  When everything is back in/ on I want the front fender to sit at the top of the rims.  The rear will be either flat level or have the tiniest of rakes. My overall look and attitude when done will hopefully be, "lean, clean, and mean."

Today, I am custom mixing some paint to repaint the interior and cab roof as last weekend it all turned out too "bronzy" for my taste. Especially with the midnight blue to come later on the rest of the truck.

BTW, Scott's bump looks great.  Kudos to his wife for doing that for him.Big smile

JT, what color are you mixing for the interior? I just got a '66 International shortbed and the inside paint seems to be a good tone for a dark blue exterior. Most IH trucks of this era had this color on the dash regardless of the exterior color. Although it is very dirty, it still looks like a good base.

The interior is a Champagne mixed with some silver.  The exterior is called Midnight drive blue.  I sprayed the door jambs and the rear wall of the cab where the bed will sit.
