    I've always loved the roof on those old 3 window Mopars! And the loooong deck lids.

    Closed? Seems like I was just in it. Someone decide to be stupid?
    Anyway, got both my doors hung and set my cab on my frame. Next step is to get everything in body position and start rebuilding the box. KIMG0142.JPG

    some thing like this
    Whoever just deleted my last post on finishing up the paint on that truck, you better go back and delete all of the other posts about the same damn truck. I know we focus on pre 65 here, but that's obviously not the focus on this thread. Jeez, there isn't very many post on this thread that are on topic. Better get busy with your delete button.

    Why go somewhere else and get cheated? Come see me first!

    From the BillyBob Shop log.

    May 4th 2020 Reinstalled the rear window frame. Got some cab interior parts from Jeff at Bowtie Bits which included new black clutch head screws for the interior trim. They were all too short and the wrong thread for the rear window frame so I hunted up the rusted ones from the tear down and gave them an EvapoRust soak. Stuck them in a piece of foamboard to hold them, PRE Paint prepped them and sprayed the tops with Eastwood's Underhood Black, the closest match in my inventory to the screws from Bowtie Bits. Beer of the day was Free State Brewing Co's Stormchaser IPA.

    It was getting off topic I suppose, looking back through it now.
    But I assumed it was politics or something that killed it.
    Hence my "stupid" comment.

    I scooped up a flathead I’m hoping is really an EAC engine, looks to have the 4” crank, violated the quarantine a few times and my daughter brush painted the ‘32... good weekend if you ask me :cool:

    Hopefully for the final time finished cutting, grinding, drilling, shimming and bolting the push bars on my heap. Amazing how the simplest looking stuff can take forever.
