    i thought it was an alien too Jeff !!

    thanks F1


    so i had the decision to make of putting the patch for the back of the cab in down low and fixing the whole back panel with all of its dents and dings or make a whole panel . the whole panel will save tons of hours in body work compared to what had to be done to the orig panel . Honestly it was only and extra 3 Feet of welding to replace the whole back .

    panel we made up

    simply welded in no hammer and file work

    Flop, the idea of bringing you my cab has crossed my mind. I am a straight line north of you except the fact that i would have to tour all the way around Lake Erie. This is not out of the question either I suppose.
    Keep up the good work. We are watching.

    Do you have the measurements and or drawings on that seat bottom. I'm trying to make one for my 32 pickup and the space sure is small.

    Hey Flop,

    The build is lookin killer...............

    Can I suggest, you go with '' boiled linseed oil '' cut with sprits rather than the poly for the wooden frame parts........The WhiteAsh is an open grained hardwood, and will take several coats of poly to seal, where the linseed oil will actually get into the pores of the wood, and seal it from the inside out. It sounds kinda ''old world'' and funky, but works out well!;)

    time to start working on fit

    with a place with little to no hammer access you want the best possible fit in the world .

    Amazing -- you know it's great work when you have no idea where the old metal leaves off and the new begins!
