Well, I got some Lil Hustler Decals made up, they are copied from the originals, they are 24" long by 3" tall. You would have to do your own pin striping. Heres some pics, I haven't figured the pricing yet, I'm gonna start listing them on Ebay probably tonight and of course they will be alot cheaper for DMT members,  just wanted to let you see them.

Yeah Braden I've always liked that one too, but I've made up alot of the lower stripes with Datsun on them, but they don't sale for some reason. Thats kind of why I haven't done those yet, I should have them done in about a week.
The more I look at the Lil Hustler ones I've already got made up, I need to trim down the 'e' in hustler alittle, not matching exact, I missed that,  dang it, I was rushing it.

If I EVER get to start my truck, I may order a set from you for the door stripes. I may make it a rat, just not sure yet.

I'm glad somebody started making these.

Please,please excuse me,I don't want to nit pick,but aren't the letters too far apart?

I was comparing to the yellow truck in the top picture. They look fantastic other than that and I want a set!

I didn't have an actual set to go by, so I took that pic of the yellow truck and measured on my truck from about the middle of the back side marker to about 1/4 of the entire wheel well and it came out to around 24" so then I guesstimated by that pic by measuring my truck it was about 3" tall and with that font with some adjusting, thats what I got. Plus your looking at a pic of the ones I made and they are the length of the whole bed of the yellow truck, so if you were to take a pic of them at the same distance, its not far from the same. 
Pharouh, what color did you need and were you planning on putting them on right now?

Yeah,I tried measuring for a set of them too and that's about what I came up with.

Black,please Smile

Hey Rusty,

Are you going to make two different bed stripes? The latest ones look like the side stripe font. Pretty cool though. Thumbs Up

Hey Rusty,

What I meant was that the bed stripe-this one

Had a different font than this lower side stripe.

Are you making them all the same now?  Just wondering...

Thanks,John

Pharouh, yeah I'm making both font/design for the top back of the bed, but the stripe kit for the lower section at the doors, its the font/design of the orange truck pic.
Which font/design do you like best on the top back of bed?

oops, sorry ibad, I forgot to answer you earlier.
For ACTIVE DMT members the two back upper bedside decals (either font/design) are $15.00 shipped for the pair and the lower door stripe kit is $25.00 shipped for the pair. Those prices include the shipping cost. I hope thats reasonable enough for the members, what little bit I make off all this stuff will evetually go back to stuff for the forum.

That price is great! The orange truck would look great with black or white. What did you do about a radiator for Ole' Blue?

Nothin yet 1bad. Not sure what I'm gonna do at this point. I plan on getting a new 3 row, but I've been spending alittle on the 510 wagon right now, so it'll have to wait.

Like I said, that aluminum one is sweet, and if I ever need another radiator, I will probably get one of these again. I bought one for my Mitz from a different company, and its okay, but nowhere near as nice and nowhere near the quality. It is a wide, wide, wide, one row. The one from Whites' is a three row and so far it works great. Do I understand correctly that it is a new factory radiator you are using? If not, as old as the truck is and these radiators, you might could get away with just a new original. I want to get some of these decals, but I want to wait to see what color I want. I think you got me white tailgate letters, so I may stick with that. I'll let you know soon.
