Great build thread, love it.
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 .
Looking forward to the updates.
Nice to see this back up. I saw the truck I think 4 years ago or so, Alex and crew do great work.

Has Charlie S. been working on it?
I remember this, and I'm happy to see it back up.
Good things take time.
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.
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
Here is the old fire wall.Alex filled in the old battery box and added the beading
