    If you want a chrome center strip on the grill, Northern Truck parts is now selling a stainless center piece that slides over the center bar. $110 US. Then you can chrome it to match.

    You are actually teasing us right? This progress was made in a three year period and you saved the pictures to show us quick progress and make us jealous !!! :p

    Your build is amazing!!

    Thanks for sharing.

    I first saw the center strip listed on their ad in Hemmings. I talked to them on the phone about a week ago and verified they have them. Bothe the stock center piece and a stainless version. They are also reproducing the front window seals.

    Your truck is really coming together nicely. Yes, I am very jealous...

    FYI - If you don't already have them, Mike Woodard in Washington State, USA, makes the little gaskets that go under the parking light on the headlight stand. I think they are about $10 a pair.

    I finally figured it out...the truck is actually completely done and you are disassembling it and posting the pictures in reverse.

    Sander, congrats on your build. Build looks too fast of a buiild for some viewer's?

    I once was told by a 19yr old it is not how much time you spend in the garage but what you get done while in the garage!

    Just looking at your photo's has shown this 65 yr old how talanted you & dad are.

    Super build.

    Yes, please. Totally want to borrow this idea for my '54 Chev COE. Now I have to figure out some great looking Chevy caps that will work...

    My '27 T Roadster build: www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t= 734383
     
  29. i drilled hole's between the wheel bolts i had the luck there where already
    large hole's it the hub behind it

    [​IMG]

    then i modified the hubcaps removed a part of the rim on the inside and welded 4 mounting tabs to it the studs will go into the hole's and fastened with
    home made wing nuts at the back of the rim
