Very nice work.
i thought it was an alien too Jeff !!
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
well thats the end product after hammer and file work
WOW! Your skills continue to amaze me. You need to be working on mine.
Man that's killer work flop. That thing was about ready for the scrap pile. Tons of labor!
You never cease to amaze me!!!
Excellent craftsmanship Tom!!!!
thanks guys !!

Awesome job Flop!! I'm now headed out to the shop and putting mine into the crusher and then into the ravine! Ugh!

Looking awesome! Love watching metal work
Is this some kind of a imposter flop, 40 posts and the lid has not been lowered yet=as always nice 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.
I don't understand how one can be so good. It's amazing! You sir are a Artist!
thanks smitty !!
not on this one Older !! thanks!!
build a boat druids!!
thanks ty !
well now we have somewhere to sit !! what a riveting day it was !!
Love your threads man. Thanks for sharing.
I'm hooked Flop. Your efforts are "top drawer"!
I'm on the hunt!
now wait just a damnminute...there should be a hamb rule on posting HOW to rivet, when you rivet...
This is just amazing, can't wait to see the rest of it !
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.
thanks everyone !!
truck is almost done and will be heading back to New Jersey soon !!
some new some old . still gonna put some poly on it to protect it
and fords newest see through door . i dont like where the previous person cut the skin off but i will make due
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!
'' Humpty Dumpty was pushed ''
wish i would have checked earlier pimpin!! but it gave my old man something to do !! once again thanks !!
start of the door skin
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!
thanks jeff!! finally feeling pretty good again after the arm !!
how bout some color!??!
into epoxy . all over bare metal . no filler in her yet .
door i put the full skin on !
Mmmmmm, good stuff...as usual
Very impressive as usual
Once again Flop, very nicely done!
That is an amazing job on this truck!!
Great workmanship as always Flop!
