    Lead work is one of the most difficult things I’ve ever tried. I certainly need more practice. Thank you.

    Keep doing the lead work. Gets easier each time. Do yourself a favour and wrap some sponge around the running board brackets. Your shins will thank you.

    Everything is low on these old things, I might be better off with the sponge around my shin. Haha.

    Nice build, well done!
    Those early Mopar p/u's are great looking, a lot of style.

    What part of the country are you in? I have an unrestored daily driver '36 pickup and had another I traded off and gave a 3rd one in pieces to my son in law and sold some of the other parts.

    Really nice work you do!

    I am in the Los Angeles area. I have some spare parts that I was going to sell if you’re looking for anything.

    My favorite year range of all time. I wanted one like yours, but am still happy to have a nice 46. Your attention to detail, skill and love for the truck show through in spades. That is one magnificent truck.

    That is a great looking truck you have there as well. I was very close to doing that same exact color. Thank you.

    Love you truck, I have a 37 that is my daily driver and race truck. What parts do you have left over, as I am also working on a 38.

    Thanks Tony

    I still have another cab with both doors already body worked, a couple rough tailgates, a set of bumpers, a headlight set, and 4 steel wheels but I believe the wheels are for a later model.

    That is some fantastic work! Really like the color scheme, and I'm impressed with how you repaired/restored the grille.

    Thank you very much. There were many failed attempts on that grill repair, the drawing board got worn out. Haha
