    In 2000 my late Pops gave me a running driving 60 F100 and I was off to the races chasing vintage tin, I really wanted phat fenders.

    I traded my 60 for a 55 F250 with a good rust-free cab In 2005, found a 53 F100 Chassis in 2007 and started assembling the two.

    My 55 Effie's a roller with a rebuilt 53 Flatty, 3Spd OD, rebuilt chassis suspension and steering, a brake upgrade. I plan to swap to do a 9" swap for better Hwy gearing eventually.

    That's about where I stopped the rebuilding, and started design planning a custom... I started Investing my spare scratch in period tin, skirts, visor, stainless, chrome, and Accy's for a few years.

    The 2007 crash left me house poor pounding dirt to keep our crib. I'm on pause; don't have a shop to work out of, a welder, haven't welded since shop class in HS, never welded sheet metal... and have some trepidation about cutting and learning on my truck...

    I joined a local club, I was the only person running old school with a Flathead, most of the cars were long past the build with perfect paint and upholstery. Not where I am in my build, or where I want to take my truck. I'd like my Flatty pushing some well executed metal work, and cheap flat paint down the road low and slow!

    So I toggled to upgrades and modifications on a 93 YJ I've had since new.

    PM me if you’re in Nor Cal, a hands-on builder in my area, I'd like drive out give you some free time as a shop sweeper and water boy to watch and learn.

    Looking for referrals to shops in Nor Cal that are good at metal work, better at shaping and hammer welding than spreading filler, and willing to do piece work in lieu of full builds.

    Old School is Period Kool in my book!
