Cab is coming along Flop! I am watching in anticipation!
thanks guys !!
heres your problem when chopping these cabs
i like to makes things look like they are not cut
back to stock
made the inside piece with all the appropriate holes
same deal over here
time to skin em .
Amazing work as always!
I like the part about getting rid of the clunky looking visor. Nice job.
Any chance of a pic of the underside of the roof front and visor, please? Is the visor stamped as part of the roof panel, and the panel above the screen just a bulkhead spot-welded to that?
I gotta say--I'm not a fan of the visorless look. but that's one man's opinion. outstanding metal work though.
i will get one for ya REM . its one piece with the roof wth a piece spotwelded to it then it bolts to the header above the windshield.
Pillars . alot of work to make them look 100 percent back to looking FORD . just 3 and a half inches lower
how i started to skin them . the bottom welded on in 2 pieces
and the top pieced back together and welded up to go with the chop and making the windshield fit
same with the passenger side
that would be orig 1932 ford black paint rubbed out on the back side of the garnish moulding
this is after it was chopped
and this is what it looks like before welds on the passenger side
and the new hole
Very nice metal work. Since you have got it all cut up in the roof why not stretch the cab and flush fit the doors for a little bit more room. That is what we are going to do to my coworkers 32 pickup. Jim (55willys)
Awesome talent and attention to detail!
Flop, I have chopped a couple of these cabs also. When I did the window frame, instead of cutting it and welding it up, I just removed what I needed from the top. All I had to do then was redrill the holes. Lazy mans way Nice job you are doing!
Flop! Has the customer decided if the visor is going back on it or not?
Man! I love me a full hood hotrod pickup. Wish my bed was stock length too.
eugh gotta figure out how to make my pictures small again photobucket screwed with some thing !!
thanks 55 . no flush fit here though !
thanks t bauer !
thanks irrational !! the frame is paper thin right above my cut . or else it would have been the lazy way !
he wants back to original but he hasnt seen it yet with the model A visor
been pushing myself latley to step up the work and actually finish off with a da
both sides done
and the pictures are still to big

Pictures look just the right size now on my machine.
Looking good Flop!
Thanks man! It actually has nearly 5 inches cut out of the bed! Crazy to think it still looks long....
Ah, stupid me. I always forget that the 33/34 has a longer wheelbase than the 32. Here's my bed, with roughly 5 inches cut out of it as well.
Still looks great! I like the overhang out the rear on yours.
Thanks for always taking the time to share the steps you have taken to bring these "back to life"
Looking awesome man! Do you have a build thread so I don't hyjack flops thread .
I wish I could put color on my truck.... Sheet metal Needs flops help in a bad way haha
Very impressive work.
I had a friend that removed the visor on his Model A pickup back in the 80's using windshield header parts from a discarded Victoria and it looked pretty good...but without a visor the sun was a bitch,,you sure can't move the seat back..
If the truck remains visor-less I would suggest to fabricate some type of interior fold down sun visors for the driver & passenger. HRP
Sorry for the hijack Flop! Show us more of your perfect metalwork!

new roof going on ... kinda weird how the paint matches
completley hand filed no grinder used
pretty bad ghost on this one and i cant figure out why ... guess i will have to buy the 1932 ford tig rods instead of the model A
You work is so damn good!!! I noticed on your truck the top bead that goes across the cab is flattened out. I have a truck also that has that problem also. Any ideas how your going to work that area. I got mine somewhat worked out it but it still ain't right. Like to see some pictures if and when you work on that area of your cab.
