Thanks Gang.
Moms -in-law is doing better. Seems like it takes her about 3 days to get over one of these episodes.
She has also decided that it's time for some sort of assisted living facilities.
Mrs T has been over there 24/7 since the ER visit. Back home tonight....
Meanwhile,More floor.
It's pretty obvious from these pictures why I won't have a back seat. And why people don't use S-10 Chassis for cars. LOL

No back seat is a bonus Torchie, nobody tells you how to drive. 🤣🤣

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

Thanks Burgerman. 😀
I agree Dozer.
Hope you are still on the upswing.
One of the many trends That customs went through was to stretch a tonneau cover from the back of the front seat to the rear package tray. Not sure why but Iím going with it.
And for you hot rodders out there....
The wicked 55 Chevy in American Graffiti had a tonneau cover over its back seat.
There were other in real life too.
No shop time tomorrow I think. I have to start on my Christmas baking.
Keep on keeping on....

I thought the back seat was an issue when people used S10 frames but, didn't know until now.
You could build a shelf area like the business coupes have.

Yes, I saw rear seat tonneau covers around here in my youth.

I hope this doesn't offend you or anyone else, but here goes:

My friend who recently had a leg amputated below the knee works in Maintenance at a low rent high rise apartment building. Recently a very elderly lady passed away. As the paramedics were wheeling her out, my friend noticed she had an artificial leg. No living relatives either. Now my friend has a spare prostheses.

Itís an issue for sure OI.
The frame starts to sweep upwards right after the B pillar and since the frame is narrower then the stock Dodge so itís not wide enough for me to sink the floor down between.
The business coupe shelf is an option.
Storage of some sort for sure given the lack of space in the trunk.😳
The joys of a sectioned and channeled car.

But does it fit? Seems unlikely.

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 was waiting for that question, Skip. He took it to the leg shop and had it reworked to fit him.
I thought is was a bizarre story and couldn't help telling it.
