The truck is looking incredible. For what it's worth, I think the unpainted motor and drive train is really neat. The truck will definitely look nice and clean from the outside but there is something really cool about seeing mechanical sections/components that are unmolested.

Also, it's no cool Ford like your's or my dad's, but I did manage to somewhat get my '66 back together (https://i.imgur.com/zSEFgv2.jpg?1) for the Summer. Now that mine is buttoned up for now, I need to get back on his project. When you get yours done, I would really like to drive up and take a look at it in person.

Working on headlights and park/turn signals.

Installed wiring, ground down metal where ground wire attaches, also I ran a additional wire for grounding to frame just in case.

Used Napa H6006 (Halogen bulbs) and Grainger (6VC35) park bulbs.

Cut a gasket from some leftover gasket material. Was able to source all the hardware for the headlites at my local Ace Hardware. Not original but will work fine for me.

Used a sharpie (lol) to color the park/turn bulb, we will see how long that lasts.

Went ahead and threw the bumper on and a '41 tag I had picked up.

Started on the running boards yesterday, rubberized coating is all I'm gonna do.

You are doing a great job. Very nice. I do have a question. I am doing a 46 ford pickup. I riveted the shoes on and assembled the brakes, But i can not get the drums back on, Any ideas? I turn the cam bolt to where I think is the correct location, but the diameter of brake shoes is greater than the inside of drums.

Thanks, I remember checking out your pictures of your '72, nice job.

Not sure on your brake shoes, I remember my back brakes were tighter than the front brakes and it took some tweaking,I arced the shoes,(ground down the top and bottom edges) to get them to go on. The fronts I had a brake shop clean up the the ridges a little which allowed them to slide on easier. Good luck

In case the felt tip pen does not last on the bulbs, you can get a translucent orange paint at most hobby shops. It's used to paint the signal lights for electric train set ups.

New rubber boot and slight mod to trans cover.

Peel and seal sound/heat mat installed and taped. Glad that ones over!

Dennis Carpenter Headliner/interior kick panel tried on for size, great fit.

Glass is being cut at the local glass shop, they do most of Volo Car Museums' work so no worries there, and having all original patterns helps.

Felt and channels installed in the doors. First order of business was to modify vise grips to clamp the trim pc connectors onto the trim. Taping up to protect and locate holes/screws etc.

It didn't seem like it belonged. I have been slow to start, but got underway this weekend. I started on the front fender, but think I would have been better off starting in the cab on panels that will not be visible. I've made several radiused patches, but made the toughest yesterday. It is the lower corner at the grill, compound curves and with a turned in edge. Ken
