Default Tetanus Tornado 49 F6

Going to try to start a build thread. I've been working on this truck on and off for about 3 years mostly in the winter months between side work and snow storms.It's a 49 ford F6 cab with a 39 bed, 32 heavy front axle, Lincoln Versailles 9 inch disc brake rear, 2000 Ford explorer 302 with 94 mustang t5 5 speed. I'm going to try to post pics so here goes.

Well it looks like that worked. I'll try to post more pics and some more info. this is the wooden mock up frame and the cab and bed roughly in place. the cab is chopped 5 inches with 3 inches out of the rear window. the chop was done with parts from 3 roofs because they were so rotted. the bed was shortened 18 inches. Ground clearance is supposed to work out to 7 inches.

fuel tank and mounting. the original plan was to make a fuel tank to fit the opening in the frame but a friend brought this one by and it fits perfectly. it is a 26 gallon tank for a boat. it even has a fuel level sender in it and the price was right,free.
