Default Re: '40 Pickup full restoration project

I have to share this as I am so thrilled... In all of my experience I have not once had a front clip go together so well, so quickly, as this truck.
Yes, of course, the sheet metal is fit prior to final paint, etc. Still, once painted, it always seems the metal "magically" moves, making the assembly (alignment) process a test of my patience.
This one? About one good, albeit long day, and the front clip was DONE.
Even as I write this, I am reliving the absolute thrill of how well this one went together.
I know I am dreaming to think the next will go this well.

Friday I will be placing the bed on the frame. Can't wait
