    Finally the stars are aligned and I can begin my 39 Pickup project.
    I will try to post pics as I go.

    Buy those zip lock bags with the white labels, that way you can write on it with a sharpie. Then you can put them all some where you can't find them like I do. Nice looking project.

    Looks like a great starting point!
     
  10. Henrietta the '38 Ford pickup and I will follow with great interest. Looks like a straight and solid old truck.

    We still have snow on the ground and it has been around freezing so I have been working on my induction... IMG_1106.jpeg
     
  17. What do you mean you still have snow on the ground? We're in the Soo, and there's just the odd little pile. But, there's a whole bunch of pot-craters in the road to replace the snow!
    Looking good on the pickup, too.

    Great looking project. Looks like you have the luxury of having a large enough workspace to be able to neatly lay out all the parts nearby.

    Yah, I'm really quite proud of my shop - I built a lot of it myself. It is 38' x 60' and took two summers to get set up...

    Man, your shop has me beat by a foot and a half width! But I got ya beat on height. Big door on East end is 16x16 opening and trusses are 18ft above the floor. Four 10x10 doors on the side. Second floor on South and West sides are at 11.5 ft x 10 ft wide. It has a 40ft boat in the middle of it and up to 7 cars and a few motorcycles.
    I like the way your roof and siding looks better than mine though. Mine is a pole building with all metal roof and siding.

    Your truck looks like a really solid rig. I love the flathead.
