    I have a quick up date here alex did the mockup and found interference with the fenders to the door . the fenders were too high and the door would not open, so we talked and his suggestion was to section the cab, so I what could i say but Alex go for it This Man is the best !!!!!!!!

    Hi All. It has been a few years but you got to do what u got to .. $$$$ and time. Alex is Back on the truck hard and heavy as I am as well. I will have some picks posted in a few days of the progress. I have asked Eric Black to update the renderings to show the motor wheel and tire change and possible color combos , so I hope he has time soon .

    Nice to see this back up. I saw the truck I think 4 years ago or so, Alex and crew do great work.

    Sorry for the delay on the posts.. I was at Alex's shop yesterday and we are planning to move forward real soon, He is still getting back to normal after the sit-down, Lately I have been working on the shop getting it ready. I ordered the car lift, ordered the parts for the flowbench we will be building, the Bridgeport Mill is ready to be set in place still looking for a Lathe, Have not made a decision yet to retire one from the business and replace with a new one yet. air compressor is in as is the blasting booth , We are planning some major work on the FlatCad and the shop needs to be ready for that also .

    How is this project coming along? My son and I are working on a 39 Ford as well. We would also like to do a chop.
    Would love to see more pics of this project.

    Hello all

    It has been way too long getting back on here to post progress.. We are in full scale attack on the truck now for a few months and Alex has done a great job so far with all the issues we ran in to on this build. The biggest issue recently has been the fire wall, The set back for the engine has changed, I wanted to run the original style radiator in the 36 front end so we had to recess the firewall after we completed one already, I did not want to run a radiator in the bed of the truck so we cut that one out and Alex started over and It is BAD ASS
