Can't think of a worse thing to happen to a father. So sorry for your loss. That's going to be a great tribute truck.

Default sorry

l know the pain of losing a son, and yes, finishing the truck is great therapy.

finishing my son's truck it helped me to move on with my life because when l drive the truck l feel closer to him. the response people give helps the healing process and sharing the story with others and the love of the truck will greatly help with you're well being.

l learned it's hard to not talk to people when l take JR's truck out, you have to be polite and sociable with the public couse lot of them want to look and talk about it and l think you will find this good for the soul, l do.

so please keep us updated,

Later

Sorry for your terrible loss. It will be a very good thing when that hemi fires up and rumbles again. The spirit of both grandpa and your son will be there with you. RIP.

Well, got the garage straightened out enough to back on the boy's '52. Started by cleaning it out, sure can fill up with junk in 3 or 4 years. After that, I reassessed the floor situation, which was actually just a staring session. I did some measuring and started cutting away. Not a lot of progress, but finally got myself to get started. Hopefully I will be able to get to posting some progress
