Updates in a few, but first, inspiration!!!!
Just found your thread.
Waitin' to see what happens next.
Got the inside of the cab stripped yesterday
And today I got the frame rails cleaned up and primed!
Hey man! I love the work you're doing on yours! Looks great!
Your truck is really coming along. With deals like that cab you are going to have a great ride on a low budget.
Hang on to your girl friend too...a woman that likes to help with her man's ride is a keeper. I married mine and she still helps me 40 years later.
Keep the pic's coming.
Thanks man! I'm trying to keep it low budget! And I'm trying, she's awesome! Thanks man!
great thread so far. You truck is really coming along and looking forward to your updates
Looking good boss! Glad to see you are still after it.
Thanks! More later! And tommorow especially!!
Thanks! I try!
Hey, I just found this thread, too. Looks like you're doing great- keep it up!
Got my cab loaded and hauled off today:
And got my new one brought home!!
Then I stripped the parts off the cab (more pics tomorrow when it's sunny) and got to checking out these really look seats that I've never seen in a 48 before!!
The passenger side seat (the part you sit on) folds up for more space, and the drivers side has a shock, with a spring! Crazy kool! More updates tomorrow!
Here are the pics of the seat folded up and the spring/shock on the seat!
And I got the cab stripped of most parts so it can be primed next weekend!!
The cab has an F-5 plate on the side...Big truck seats! Should ride really nice with that sprung seat. Love the turn signal assembly on the steering column, be a cool unit to save for the build. Take your time and enjoy the build, you're doing great.
Keep the lady, Mine has been helping for nearly 45 years, the greatest blessing of my life.
Nice seats. Way better than bomber buckets IMHO.
good work... keep it up...
Heck yah! I'm hoping it will be a smooth ride! And I'm trying my best to keep her around
I completely agree!
Wow great work, my 14 year old boy and I just started picking away at his 51 shoebox ford.
Your truck is really coming around.
Kool! I've Always wanted one! Trust me! He appreciates your help and loves having you out there supporting him! Just make sure you make him feel like he can do it, and point him in the right direction! Thsnks!!
Got more of the cab stripped!! Almost ready for primer!!
Keep up the good work honey! Me an you need to have a day out there so I can help out! I'll try not to screw anything up!! <3
You wouldn't screw anything up Hey! You still need to finish that fender! The whole truck needs to be in primer in two weeks!!
Just got caught up. New cab looks great.
Well you need to let me xomeover an finish it!!
Thanks man! Hope you're enjoying the build! Won't probably update until I get it primered this weekend or the next
