Default Re: 1941 Ford Pickup frame-off restore for the next generation

Luckily original wood one side was useable for template. Oak from local lumber yard, cutting, scrolling, and notching. I really do not like wood. LOL

Rolling chassis, a goal set by myself by Halloween.

Mating of the 2, a match made by Ford himself. Amazing how I was able to use a car frame and drill absolutely no new holes needed.

Fun begins, tweaking and shimming. Doors on, a little shimming to adjust, and out into the sunshine. Door gaps are better than before and doors close so much better than before.

Fall cleanup of shop. All jacked up to work on.
