The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Not a whole lot accomplished the last couple weeks, moved the car to my work where it sat on display for a couple weeks while a Tbucket event came through our town.







While it was at work I was able to get going on the fuel system. In tank pump & fuel level sending unit installed, made hard lines and -6an steel braided lines.











I tried to run as much hard line as possible. I'd make a line, kink a bend & start over. Then I began running out of hard line so when a bend would kink I'd cut it there then run the steel braided lines. It's not perfect but it'll work.

Since I'm planning on keeping the tank out in the open, I'll cut the body for the fuel lines so it'll appear the lines are disappearing into the body.

Looks good.
What was the reaction from the T-Bucket brigade?

The few that came by were supportive, some liked seeing something different. Others were being nice about it even if they didn't approve or get it.

The engine itself does appear very exotic, despite being mass produced you don't ever see it in this form. So I'm sure even the most traditionalist gearhead can have even some appreciation, otherwise if it had a SBC/TH350 it would be just another mail ordered plastic Tbucket copy.

Great engine choice. I have seen pics of a few Lexus V8s, but never a Beemer.

The basic skeleton of the steering gear mounting, still need to gusset, add supports and braces to get rid of as much flex as possible. But so far the .250" wall 2"x2" square tube stock is some stout stuff.
