    By the way, bone stock worn out engine/trans but a nice new radiator and fairly tight steering box. Shield is chopped 2” and a top is in the planning stages

    I think they popped up now! The truck has a reverse eye stock spring as well. It’s still a long way from road ready but I generally try to get at least one thing done every evening so there is steady progress

    Thank you! It’s really a pile of cast of parts that I’ve squirreled away for the most part. Plans call for a set of cast iron drums and basically getting it as mechanically sound as time and funds allow. I think it will be a hoot to putt around in. Also I will fab a top frame soon, probably use cobra grain for the material and Brent here on the Hamb just hooked me up with a cool roadster rear window frame

    Love a Roadster Pk Up. That would have been great here In St Thomas, but my 29 had a snap on canvas top, so it was almost as nice as as a roadster. I was also running a Hot B engine with a S10 5speed. But I got to old to keep it up so I only have memories now, but good ones. Iceman
