100 1694 by Ford52PU posted Dec 23, 2008 at 8:26 AM I made a terrible mistake back in 2014. I took my 52 Ford F1 apart to do some "simple" repairs and a quick paintjob. It had been painted with Rustoleum and a brush. Window screen seemed to standard issue to hold bondo in place. I'm no bodyman but I know the less filler the better. Three of more spools of mig wire later and most if not all of the previous bad repairs are now replaced with newer bad repairs. The bed was a mess, it had a full sheet of plywood cut in half with a spacer in the middle to fill the cavity. It was rotted beyond saving and both sides of the bed was rusted away. Thought about buying a new bed kit but the price scared me away. I was able to get most of what I needed and made what I couldnt find. I made a cart for the bed and bolted it down and did what I could to improve things. I sprayed it with primer back in the fall of 2105 which is the condition it stayed until August of this year. 121 by Ford52PU posted Jun 1, 2018 at 6:19 PM I went over the entire truck with 400 grit paper and wiped it all down with prep. Found that both rear fenders needed more repair but finally in September I decided to paint it and put it back together and at least be able to drive it again. Took a week off of work, got some paint from Eastwood, Urethane Pin-Up Red. Got my HF HPLV sprayer out and the paint gods be damned. So I have to still put the rear fenders back on, fix the PS running board, mount the front grille and both bumpers but its closer now than its been in years. The paint has more Orange peel than the state of Florida. But I'm happy with it. Just wanted to share with you all.
