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.

Ya Skip, there was mention of panel fit. That's not rat rod talk. Maybe Dr. C is a closet Foosefollower.

I remember a tech article in Hotrod decades back (like when it was a new car) about getting rid of those tail lights in an Impala, and fabricating long skinny tail lights in the trim strip running between the trunk and bumper.

Nice, nice! Looks like a rebuild job that someone lost interest in... Time to bring it out of the 70's. Gonna watch this one, looks like a great car to start with.

Sorry to disappoint, fellas. It will be finished, painted and the panels will fit... mark my words!

zz: You are correct. We don't know how long it sat before it took residence in the trailer... I'm guesstimating 25 years since it last ran and drove.

bob w: I don't know anybody named Foose.


Where was I? Oh, yeah... the build...

My friend and I have recently come to understand... we're not very smart... so, using a letter from his first name and a letter from my surname, we are B-tard (him) and A-tard (me). Duotards, if you will.

Small delay. Btard planned to expand his existing garage, or build a separate shop before buying a project, but couldn't... quite... squeeze the trigger... then we found the car and he jumped in with both feet.

The following spring, we retrieved the car and it sat in another trailer while the shop was built, which took us into the following winter before anybody turned a wrench on the car.

Freshly rolled into the new shop...







... not a wrench or toolbox in sight, but trust me, when the tools moved in, the tail lights moved out!

Solid looking start good Dr.
I'm sure you will knock the fugly off of it.
And I have found that the speed of smell is faster then either the speed of light or sound.
Just try outrunning the smell of a F#*t....

Can we get a couple pics of the shop. The lights at 4 feet up the wall are an interesting idea. What else is going on? Please?
