Hello to all,
yesterday arrived a little parts from Classicparts and today I started to install the gas tank
I have painted before installation
If my wife leaves me free tomorrow I can still work on my truck
My thoughts exactly
Keep it up.
this is a truely amazing work here. building a 51 chevy myself right now....this thread makes me feel like crap. there is no way i could ever EVER build something at this standard.
Many thanks to all. Soon there will be new updates, I'm installing the new windshield and back glass, with great difficulty .
Some broklen glass?
you are doing incredible work. I like the white paint. Amazing to see the dedication you have to complete this project. This is a very nice truck, will be nicest truck in Italy when you are done.
Looks like it started as a 20yo Resto. I LMAO at the Deluxe delete
Molto bello Io sono innamorato di lei Lei è la più bella in tutta Italia
Absolutely the best truck build in Italy!!!
Not yet Bandito, not yet !!!
When you install windows on your '31 Ford you know who to call .
Many thanks to all
Many thanks Ronald, we can hear the engine run ?
Monday should arrive in Miami the second radiator. Probably will be unlocked the first so we will have the first truck with 2 radiators
here are some other minor updates.
I installed the windshield glass with stainless steel trim, back glass,
ss hood center molding, front chevy emblem and other headlight.
Begin to see something concrete
Grazie mille del complimento, apprezzatissimo!
All I can say is "WOW"!!! Anytime you'd consider it, I'd fly you over here to do the bodywork/paint on my nephews 51 Chevrolet Business Coupe. Do you have any "neighbor" type problems; it looks like you're surrounded by apts/condos. Keep on posting. Butch/56sedandelivery.
Beautiful truck. 'Should have kept the 5 windows though...
Hello friends, today I need your help.
I installed the windshield with stainless steel trim, but something did not convince me.
I removed the windshield and still not get it to go well.
I'm installing the windshield but I have problems to enter the stainless steel trim
Please can someone help me understand how to properly install this molding?
I ran all the information you find on the web but the gasket does not fit well.
Here in my city there is no one able to do this job.
Please, please, please, help me !!!
Any help is appreciated
Many many thanks <!-- / message -->
I made my glass flush fit, so I'm no help, hope someone chimes in for help....Jim
Thanks Jim, I try again tomorrow.
I saw your truck, congratulations, is gorgeous and attention to detail.
Orula can you post a pic of the stainless trim backside. i have a 50 with the trim in it and can pull it out if you need me to.
www.chevytalk.org did you try this site
This is probably the cleanest build I've ever seen. I thought it was nice to start with but it is going to be sweet.
Hi Steve, I did not know Chevytalk, I do a search later, thanks.
These are photos of the trim (are dirty but new), the back part that is inserted into the rubber.
Many thanks for your help.
Hello to all,
waiting to see how to install the windshield, now I have dedicated
the realization of a gas tank cover. I used wood from 5/16 thickness.
The work is not finished yet but I like
Why not bring the wood over all the way up. That way you can hide it and that sound deadener.
That stainless windshield trim can be a pain , you have to trim the reproductions to get it to fit . You are installing it in the rubber before mounting the glass right ? They look nice with stainless around all the glass though . Nice truck !
Many thanks 38zephyr, I really like these trim and I have to find a way to install them. I installed them after installing the glass....maybe I'm wrong?
Hi Tony, I think I put the wood to close round but I want to get a small space for some objects. Many thanks.
