So here we have my 37 Ford pickup project. The goal is to create a one of a kind full-fendered custom with a factory look. Part of that plan includes stretching the cab 4". Here's the story so far: Of the 3 cabs I had, the 35 was by far the nicest. Besides, I like the way the cowl transitions into the windshield on the 35 and the curved rear edge of the hood. My fearless assistant is up for the task: First task is to install the hidden hinges and align the doors before cutting up the cab. Anybody who's done this before knows it is a tedious and time consuming job. I found the peak of the crown on the door split it down the middle there and added in a 4" slice from the center of a donor door. The jog at the bottom is necessary to avoid a step in the bottom edge profile. This is the other door after welding: Together with the stretch, I wanted a mild chop. I like the look of a 3" chop on a full-fendered truck. With the 4" stretch, a 1" chop gives me the same length to height ratio of the window. With the door frame tacked together, the top edge looks a little flat. More about that later.
