Really nice work, puts my 'hamb'fisted (ho ho) efforts to shame.

On the clutch linkage have you considered going hydraulic?

I used this kit http://www.novak-adapt.com/catalog/kit_hcr3.htm after a recommendation from another hamber and it works an absolute treat.

Sure saved a lot of headache and the best bit is it just works.

Keep up the good work, think the proportions are spot on with the longer bed.

Hey Paul , thanks for the heads up on that clutch setup. That looks pretty slick or "the dog's bollocks" as your people would say!

Before I yanked the top off, I had reached a mini milestone in the form of two swinging/latching doors. I realize this may not seem like a big deal to most, but considering I made the A and B pillars and the dovetail guides from scratch, I am pleased with the outcome.

I still have a seemingly never ending list of tasks but this feels good, for real.

As always, thanks for looking, mikethegreek

Truck looks good. I've been following your thread. I got lucky on my '35 cab.....The guy that I got it from had already replaced the wood with tubing.

I haven't updated in a while as I have been revamping the shop a little and remodeling the wife's bathroom.

I made some new shelves for my growing collection of stuff and managed to get the T inside for the winter.

So, now I'm back on the truck. I needed some driveshaft and torque arm travel clearance so I decided to make a crude hammer- form to get the job done.

Then, It was on to replacing the mock-up wood at the back of the cab...

More tubing ...and a shot of the doodlebug. One step forward and two steps back, it would seem.

I have plans to make the back window roll down ,so I'll have to address that at some point.

Hey, nice door jam work! I'm gonna have to do something like that on mine. How are you attaching your wood parts to the steel parts?

Hey Rob, if you are referring to the last set of pictures, that is just 1"x 2" and 1"x 1-1/2" 14ga tubing.
Thanks all for looking!

Thanks dude. The wood is attatched with little 6-32 stainless steel screws. Lots of drilling and tapping! I am using a spiral tap that is self drilling so that helps a little.

Pretty slick! I can see some resemblance. How about you come and handle my rust abatement project for me?
