This week I spent a day weatherizing stuff that has to stay outside, and a couple more days rearranging the shop so I could make a home for the bolt bin and some other parts shelving. Ended up with a bigger mess than I started with! But as of today, most of the stuff is put away, and I can walk all the way around the 39 without putting myself in danger. So now I can get back to work. I also ended up with about two more feet of floor space in the "car side" of the shop. I doubt that the shop will ever be neat and tidy like some of you kid's, but if it is clear enough to work in, I'm a happy camper.

Now to finish the radiator installation. See if I can get the carb to idle down a bit (or determine if it needs to be rebuilt/replaced). Then I should be back at the point where I can take it to the DMV. It will be a dry-weather ride, so I have some time.

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.

I actually did something today. I installed the new bolts for the water pump pulley. Whooo hoooo!!! I had to buy shorter bolts as I deleted the flex fan for an electric.

Then I looked over the rest of the install for the new radiator and decided it will work fine. Now to take it apart and weld up a couple pieces. Then. I will be back where I was when the original radiator demonstrated that I had bought a piece of junk at the swap meet.

I also looked seriously at some wrought iron chairs that I picked up at a yard sale a few years ago. They have some serious potential as the foundation for some bucket seats for the next project.


Any progress is good.
