Picked up a 35 through 40 frame for the 37 cab on Craig's List. Also found a set of guide headlights, a GM steering column and a set of wishbones at the Epping NH swap meet. Traded a Set of 39 ford rear fenders for a ford 9 inch. Last week a friend gave me a 36 truck radiator shell with the radiator in it. We also traded some labor for a real rusty 36 truck. I saved the roof and door tops for a some patch pieces for an eventual top chop. I also saved the firewall. I may use it to eliminate the battery tray from the 37 firewall.

We got the window bucks in and started on insulation on the outer walls today. I also set up to snatch widow maker off the dead pine...

Scored a set of boxing plates and a cross member for the 37.Only 150 bucks. The cross member will drop the front end 4". Picked up a set of set of 16" wheels but I dont think I will be using them. The bolt pattern is 5x5.5 and the rear end is out of a 68 Mustang and has the small bolt pattern and also the only disk break kit I'm looking at is the small pattern also.

I've had my nose to the grind stone for quite some time so I took a 3 day weekend & basically slept in & did next to nothing! Only thing I really did besides having a hog fest here at the house was to see why my lil Ford 8N won't start... think it's the solenoid! Back to reality this morning! No please... not reality!!!

I pretty much did what Bob did less the 8N tractor part.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.
