    Looks like the more patch panels you do the better they get, that's how we all learn. Bad ass keep it goin. My first truck when I was 14 was 55 chevy.

    That's what I like to hear!! Thank you!! My dad had a 55 Chevy that I wanted to build.. But we traded it for some work on the 27.. :(

    How expensive/hard would it be to throw a I6 and a Manual tranny in the 48?

    throwing an inline 6 and manual should be pretty cheap and easy. itll fit with no problems and you can find one for pretty cheap so all you gotta do is make up some motor and tranny mounts and ur set

    Well, you did it Hotrod95. After seeing you get started I went ahead, pulled the trigger, and bought the 49 F1 I've been passing everyday.

    I don't know if I should thank you or blame you. :D

    Now, get to work and show me how to fix my truck! :p

    You'll thank me at first... Then blame me when you get to working on it..:):eek::cool:

    I'll be learning from you if anything, haha! I can't wait to see the progress!! Looks like a big project. But, parts are easy to find! (If you have the money.. :()

    Seems like she's into the truck, nothing wrong with a nice looking extra hand :D

    never did find a "hot rod girl" myself but I date a "race track girl" for a while. If racing was my addiction, that girl was a walking needle dispenser!

    here's a little heads up on installing an I6. If your truck did not come with an I6 youll need to move the radiator forward which is as easy as a few bolt. the holes should already be in the frame. thats how I did it and it worked great. keep up the good work.

    And yah! They are fun! Kind of like a puzzle that you get to fab up however you want! Can get hard though.

    A little of both?:D:D:cool:

    :D:D Nothing wrong with it at all! And I got extremely lucky!! She loves old rides! :cool::cool:

    Thanks for the heads up! Came with a flathead 6. Still need moved forward?
