crazy inflation going on.
I never payed more than 25,- plus tax, ( say $35,- ) for a 3.2x6.5 19ga. sheet. Luckily I still have good stock but I recently got a new price of 90,- +tax ( +/- $ 130,-) for the same size....

I need to buy a sheet of 18 gauge for future projects, but I can wait. Right now, I am repurposing a lot of used steel.

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.

Just talked to my steel supplier.
4x8-18 gauge. $150.00
Almost double my last sheet but less then I expected.
Unles I want a lot of seams I will probably need 2 sheets.
Now we know.

Toe kicks fitted. Then I trimmed the floor piece and set it in the car.

It's a thing of beauty, much beefier than the original floor and being flat makes it easier to mount seats, etc.
