AS I looked at the pictures, I thought, "You really need to fix... oh, you did." Of course you did. Its perfect. Or will be soon enough. Looks great.

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.

Thanks all.
bob.*You left of the "idiot" part.
Back under the car.
I've got it lifted as high as I can in my shop so I'm just able to get under it in a sitting position on a low mechanics stool. c
After more welding on the forward part of the inner rocker I moved back to the rear.
Cut out roached body mount . The picture of the mostly intact one is from the other side.
This must be a main mount as it's the only ones that are boxed. It sits right in front of the rear wheel opening.
Tacked in more new inner rocker. This will give me something strong and clean to build off of.
Doesn't seem like much progress but this took the better part of the afternoon.
Even on the short stool my knees and leg aren't really happy.
Thank for checking up on me...
Keep on keeping on.
Torchie

Torchie, OI really burst my bubble, I was shooting for the glamour. Those guys on TV don't even get their coveralls dirty. My welding hat looks like yours, I don't remember what colour it used to be.
But,------ Keep on tinkering, Torchie.

Mac.
I don't have TV and haven't for over 25 years now.
We did upgrade our internet so I have been looking in on a couple of them.
LOL. What a crock of Manure. This is what I've learned so far.......
"We only have 2 weeks to build this car."
"I don't need this right now.(As the - - - - Leaks.)"
" The auction is tomorrow" as they roll the car into the paint booth.
"We have been working too hard. We need a break. Lets go out and do something stupid."
You get the idea.
I didn't know I've been doing it wrong for the past 50 years.
That hat used to be red with a dragon on it.

haha that sums it al up
Whenever someone enters my shop, they always start with I ve seen this on the discovery channel and blah di blah.... have you seen this or that and more blah... Me; Nope.
Most of those shows could ( and should ) be reduced to a before and after shot. There`s not much to learn in between.

I understand that they do all that crap for ratings.
When people ask me if I watch them my reply is always the same. Those shows are for people that have never built a car in their life.
