It has been said that knowledge is power. Power is a good thing with any minitruck, especially if it's your project.
So why wouldn't you want all the knowledge you can get your hands on? The answer is simple, you do. That's why you buy Mini Truckin' Magazine, you turn wrenches, go to websites, and talk to your buddies.
If all of that is true, and it is, then you should also be wrapping your hands around this year's sheetmetal Buyer's Guide. It will arm you with plenty of power, maybe not the kind you feel while out dragging your truck knowing that the pavement is only inches away through the floorboard, but power nonetheless. You will find sources for everything between the front and rear bumpers for your truck. Imagine having your own truck directory to show you where to find the sheetmetal, you need, when you need it. Wait, you do, with this guide. Keep it handy and it will save you time and money over the long haul, that is, the building of your recent minitruck project.
