Yeah, maybe you and "Sugarmaker" can make a deal.

Hi all; Here's the latest work on the 'Burn out'. Pulled the cab gingerly to save the good paint- it's going to a body shop after cleaning for paint 'repair' not a full paint job. Time now to get it inside and be able to move it in and out for work/blasting; depending on changing weather. Am going to try to use correct fasteners on rebuild. Hate those fiberglass firewall pads tho. Have in 'stock' another B motor- stock babbit type. Newc

Well, here is the latest on the burned '32 PU. Sand blasted the front chassis, etch primed, and epoxy black paint in two days. Lots of crawling around on the carpet pieces. Now reassembly can begin. A stock new babbit bearing engine is going back in, and simple stock wiring. The body parts are back from a local blaster, and the cab I blasted except the top and back outside; will try to save that finish. Local body shops were no help- ran from this job and I found a one man outfit, who will do the cab and small parts [hopefully]. Thinking of a black firewall. I even found the correct Vin [was not used]. The correct headlights were black steel [commercial] so I saved the bug-eyed ones for 'rockfla', and all the 'car' parts are coming off except the cowl light turn signals? These local paint shops are sooo arrogant that I am determined to build a booth someday. later Newc photos attached below ooops!

Newc, the damage appears (purely from looking at the pictures) to be relatively superficial. While I am pleased that the truck is being repaired by a barner and we are able to watch the progress, It makes me wonder why it was sold and not repaired by the original owner.
But nonetheless, you are making great progress on what will no doubt turn out to be a very nice pickup.
Mart.

Are you planning to ditch the cowl lights ? To me thay look out of place as trucks didn't have them.

I'll echo Mart's comment. Thought etch and epoxy don't like each other? You're making quick strides!

Well; Here we are in November '21. The sheet metal is in Body Shop Jail, so I am going after everything else. The new engine went in today. firewall, I painted, so lots of mechanicals todo. Starter/alternator[12V] were replaced. Fire went thru a tiny hole in starter and got the armature! Need to find an old fashioned radiator shop to check my spare, and wiring came from Tyree. It should be a driver this Winter. Photos Newc

Halogen extinguishers are still available in California,just more expensive. However, the cost could be less than repairing the damage left by other chemical extinguishers plus the cost of fire damage.

Just catching up with deuce lovers comment about cowl lamps; in some jurisdictions outside North America required separate parking, in this case cowl, lamps on all vehicles. In North America both the deluxe panel trucks (all wheel bases) and late station wagons were equipped with the all-stainless steel variety used on passenger cars, but elsewhere where cowl lamps were required on all commercial vehicles and big trucks, the lamp housing was black-painted plain steel and only the rim was stainless steel. Both types of cowl lamps are listed in the U.S. '32 chassis parts catalog.

Newc,

For what it is worth, all North American '32 firewalls were originally painted black.

I take that back.I now remember seeing a'32 deluxe panel with stainless cowl lights back in the mid 1970's.It also had the engine turned instrument panel.It belonged to Neal East.

Newc,
Your doing a awesome job bringing the fire damaged deuce pickup back to life. When I saw the serial number written on the frame, I was wondering if it was correct? Mine is a similar AAB number in the larger truck version. I am taking notes! Your doing all the right things! The results of your work look very good! You can be proud of bringing this back into service. Was this a electrical fire?
The painting process requires some skills and equipment. but from the look around your shop, I bet you could do that also!
For some reason I have this feeling your not near by to Erie PA?
Really enjoying your thread.
Regards,
Chris

Dec 18th '21 Cold/dark outside- shop is 55F with stove going. Made some mechanical progress and firewall is going on this weekend. Wiring, instruments also. Cab /parts are in 'Body Shop Jail' I visit them regularly for encouragement. Third Gen got a good order from me-so no more hardware store stuff. This is the second '32 Pu of this color I have owned. Never had room for this project, very tight in here. Yes; it's staying 12 Volt. Photos Newc
