I haven't been in in awhile, farming season has slowed down the progress. However it came a big rain last week so got to work on the bed, and got it mounted. It had 2 boards put together originally that measured a tad over 2.5 inches wide and a tad over 7 inches tall. I had enough threads left on the clamps to mount a 2/8. I don't plan to haul any big loads so think this will work. Next will be to put boards on the bed and on the sides and still have to paint the wheels I've already got the duals blasted and ready for primer! The boys at the body shop about half my fenders ready and I have the hood completed so basically after that will be interior work, which I already have the headliner and side panels purchased. And of course get the glass installed so it's coming together should have it ready for the parade this Labor Day!

That is going to be one fine looking truck.
You could hire it out for hayrides.

Let me guess, the paper towel role is there to remind you not to hit your head on the mirror arm right? Done that so many times!

Hi Everyone, Very nicely done! Is that the one on it when it was under the hedge? If yes, it turned out incredibly well!

Got the wheels painted finally, and the duals back on. Now it's looking like a big truck!

It's been awhile since I've been on here, but farming season got busy and I've not done much work on Pop's truck for a couple months. It's slowed down enough, and with my deadline of having this truck ready for the labor day parade, I better get on it. Got some wood metal strips from Horkys to put the wood on the bed. Looks good, i'm getting a couple of the stakes on the bed straightened, after that i'll get the wood on the sides next. Once I get the fenders back from local body man, I can paint those and get them on the truck, I already have the grill and hood done. Should be ready for the local labor day parade, but I got to stay on it! Hope to be updating more often, stay tuned!

Glad you're getting back to it - as Labor Day will be here MUCh faster than you think! Keep posting as you go. On the fenders, I find it much easier to spray them off the car/truck - just be careful putting them back on!

Your truck is coming along quite nicely. Hang in there. You're almost done.
