Tearing apart is sometimes more fun then the build.😜

No kidding skip😳
The whole one pin in from the top and the other in from the bottom. Plus that PITA spring.
Is there even any adjustment on theses doors?
Not much off of this one will be sellable. I think only the hood.
Blessedly getting some rain here tonight. Much needed.

Good idea. Real legs have a better warning system for when you try to set them on fire, and they are self repairing for the most part.

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.

Finished up the last body mount today.
I'm really tired of doing this under the car stuff and it's taking a hard toll on my body, so I just bulled through the last 2.
Not pretty but once they are seam sealed. Covered with POR 15 and undercoating they will more then serve their intended purpose.
I've got to get past this part of the build and keep moving forward.
Keep on keeping on.
Torchie.

Looks good. Keep plugging at it. If you get one little thing done it's one thing you don't have to do later.

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