Mopar210.... I am also building a 55 F100 so I'll be looking forward to seeing your progress. Looks like a good start.


Sure is good to see you folks working with your sons and grandsons on those special projects. I wish my grandson lived a lot closer to me. He has been a lot of help on my build and he has learned to mig weld and is pretty good on the tig.

My oldest grandson is 4 but he already shows interest, my oldest grand daughter is 16 but wants no part of it, but I've tried good luck on the truck looks good so far.
