    Five of us became home brewers and I wanted a panel truck to pose as our "brew truck". I found this panel truck, in parts, at a local junkyard. The owner kept it in a special place planning to build something himself but never got to it. The sheetmetal was disassembled and kept in a container out of the weather and was in excellent shape. The frame was in the weather, had a small block Chevy mounted and rusted solid. It is now 90% complete, licensed and driven. I'd like to post some photos as I went along. I find I get good information from other experienced builders. I have built a '60 Jeep pickup and a '32 Ford roadster, so have some experience.

    Love those 37's. I have had a few including a primered panel truck I built and our Family enjoyed in the 80's. Sold it to a Maxwell House coffee distributer and then he let it sit for several years. Another local guy and now a friend bought it and once again brought it back to life. It is great seeing it at shows and cruise nights.
    Good luck with your build. It should be a great addition to showcase your business.

  7. I love to see old trucks and panels lettered for some business either fictional or real. Henrietta the '38 Ford pickup is lettered as a shop truck for Drake Motor Co., the local Ford dealer from 1928-1956. Phone 13, actual phone number back in the day

    I may need some help getting photos added. I posted some a few days ago and they don't seem to have come across. Would one of you please walk me through the steps to add photos and comments?

    Hello,

    We have always liked sedan deliveries and panel trucks. Sorry you are having problems with uploading photos. We have all had problems with uploading photos to the HAMB. Here is one thing I have noticed. If you are trying to upload photos for a thread post from a phone or tablet, people have run into some kind of difficulty from those two devices. So, make sure they are loaded on your home computer hard drive or laptop hard drive. That is a good safe place.


    It will depend on your photos being saved onto your computer files as “jpegs.” If all of your photos are in a folder and saved, that is step one.
    upload_2019-1-27_18-10-43.png I borrowed this photo from Raymay’s post. Saved it to my own files as a JPEG. Then copied it and posted in the HAMB reply box. (the bottom info was just to show you how your photo is labeled)
    upload_2019-1-27_18-11-29.png
    2. Now, you can start typing in any comment or directions inside the box. Click and open your 1st JPEG photo. Copy and paste on the REPLY section of the Thread. Make sure there is a bottom info tab that says upload… that verifies that your photo has passed the HAMB loading rules and is ok for the post.

    NOTE:
    3. If you have a Word Document handy on your home computer or laptop, then do the copy, pasting, and writing on Word, first. You can edit/make simple paragraphs for each idea or photo. It makes it easier to finish/edit than on the HAMB window. Once the whole post is finished…then start copy and pasting your photo first, copy and paste the writing next. If there are more photos and information steps, once you hit reply, it should go right to the thread. If there is a drastic error, then delete the HAMB post. But, you still have the original writings and photos on your Word Document on your computer.


    Hopefully, the simple way to post anything according to the HAMB rules is to edit first. Then resize your photos on the Word Document to fit the HAMB window. This makes sure the photos are not so large as they reach the blurry effect. (paste, look to see if the photo fits, if not delete the photo) There is nothing worse than a blurry photo or a photo that is too large. Crop out the surrounding stuff and make the “work on the panel truck,” the center of focus.

    Jnaki

    There is no hurry, since we are all waiting for your photos. So, edit first, make sure they fit your idea and match the photo. Then post one short section at a time, as your time allows. Hope this info helps you… It took me many errors and rewrites since I first started here on the HAMB. The key is to save your photos as JPEGS, first, on your home computer or laptop. I tried a phone HAMB post and a tablet HAMB post and it is not worth the effort for me. (plus, the size of those devices are too small to be happy with the results or ongoing typing.)

    Let me know if you need any more help. Looking forward to the photographs and stories...

    I added some photos by copying and pasting. It looks to me like they filled the reply box and I can't find a place to put the cursor or to add comments on the photos. I am working on a MacBook Pro and the files are jpegs. Thanks for the help with adding photos... now what do I do to add text? The upload a file box confuses me as it cuts to a screen that shows a few files in a list and I'm not sure it they are the same files as the photos. Did anyone see the next photos?

    Robert, I would really like to see how this build came out, I am sorry to say that probably will not happen. The HAMB is a traditional Hot Rod site, and that front suspension does not and will never fit in here on the HAMB. To save this thread you need to go back and delete the pictures of that modification, and in future post just don't post the parts of the car that are not traditional.

    It also would be wise to take a look at the guidelines on the main page, they are simple and straight forward and need to be taken to heart.

    You mean this (end result) doesn't qualify? Just wanted to share how I got here.

  19. Yes Sir the end result does but not the suspension mods. You either need to read the rules and go back and delete the pictures of the front and rear suspensions or the Moderators may delete the entire thread. Nice end result but you have to learn to not show some stuff here.

    I've had quite enough of this. Cars are about your passion for them. Adios.

  21. But this site is about a certain era of hot rods and customs, as said nice work, certain parts don’t fit here, stick around and you will find a wealth of knowledge here.

  22. I just realized that this got moved to the antiquated forum so no worries post away!

  23. Sorry to see you go but all the members of the Hamb adhere to the rules, nothing personal. HRP

    1. If in doubt, don't post it.

    2. Stay on-topic and relevant with your posts; OT posts aren't generally appreciated by our membership.

    3. Gotta easy question? Try using the search function first.

    4. While we don't require "introductions," some members do appreciate them so it might be a good idea for you to do one here. Just introduce yourself and let folks know what you are all about.

    5. As mentioned throughout these guidelines, the H.A.M.B. focuses on TRADITIONAL hot rods and customs. Posts pertaining to traditionally inspired, but not quite period perfect belong on the main forum found here. Please note that we don't focus on things such as modern fuel injected motors, big-inch wheels, frame clips, after market independent suspensions, etc... at all on the H.A.M.B.. As such, posts that stray away from the "traditional inspired" will be deleted.

    6. Posts about period correct hot rods should go here.

    7. Posts about period correct customs should go here.

    I didn't make the rules and I don't enforce them but you do have a cool panel truck, I would suggest deleting the front suspension photos since they are deemed OFF TOPIC. HRP
