This will be cool and a fun project to do!

I hope you plan to gusset up the "Z" in the frame and make some other improvements, it looks like it leaves a bit to be desired at this point.

Yes, I do plan on cutting those pieces of crap off their and redoing them. Leaving a little to be desired is an understatement I believe. I saw pictures of this Frame being built and it was in a very nice jig and it is still not Square and the welds look like crap. There's not near enough gusseting and places and I am not really excited to put my name on work around it. So yes I do plan on changing a few things on it

We're gonna need lots of fab photos LB. Your name on this build will be fine after you do your homework.

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.

So today I lugged the front axle in to the shop for the pickup. I started building the mounting plates that will hold the front clink bars to the front axle. In the morning I will get on building the links
