    got a little more sanding done......most of the effort was in the front window channel....have to remove all the rust, treat it with rust preservatives and level it out so there no leaks

  19. Thanks for the dust pile pics! It sure is nice to get those days behind you, isn't it? Nice progress by the way!
     
  20. What are your color choices? I was thinking Maroon and ivory for my car... Is yours getting chopped eventually? You make me feel lazy... I'll get my floors done in the next week or two. Great Job so far- Feels good when a project cooks right along!

    finished cleaning the inside section of the fire wall ,... the section under the windshield I sprayed with cold galvanized compound. It's loaded with zinc........prevents rust and corrosion.....

    well it's been a little over a year, 13 months to be exact since I worked on the shoebox.....reason being ,I saw this '49 chevy 3100 I had to have....then I came across this great deal on this '52 IH L110 I couldn't pass up.......well ,the chev was "just throw a motor and trans in and drive,,hahaha....the IH was I'll work on that after I ....you know the drill.....I've been on the chev truck steady for a yr., in between I was on the IH.......
    now I'm back on the shoebox, re-prepping the fire wall , both sides, getting ready to epoxy primer it........changed motors...got a 302, roller c-4 combo.......hopefully I can keep my fuckas on the shoebox for awhile......
