Nice work on the doors and the chop.

What do you have planned to tidy up the lower part of the cowl?

Hi IR Pops

I love this build...I purchased in late August a Pilot-House cab off of a dump truck that I think I might be putting on my current build which is a 1952 Chevy that is shown on my avatar...I am also looking for a full fendered Pilot-House to do over when I get sick of the open wheeled project.
Yours looks awesome so far...keep the pictures coming...you are giving me lots of ideas.

Thanks guys.

Dirtyrat-This cab is so wide, it was just screaming dually!!

Wendel-When I get my suspension and ride height figured out I plan on
Doing a complete rebuild on the front cowl including shortening it.
Lots to do and nothing but time to do it.

Mike- thanks. There is a local guy here in the Albuquerque area that has
Fifty to sixty dodge vehicles. Nothing but mopar stuff! I'm just
Starting this build and he already has me hooked on 2 more.
I'll put up some pics in the AM.

Here's an idea that I've always thought would look cool on the Pilot House trucks. I've been meaning to pitch it to Skull but just haven't taken the time so I'll post it here for you and I'm sure he'll find it too

To me in stock form the windshield on these trucks goes too high into the cab compared to the rest of the windows



.......so what if one were to chop the windshield opening down to align with the top of the side windows The photo shop work is crude but you get the idea.



Might be an option. Cool build by the way.

not happy cuttin, up your'es now ya gotta cut up mine

seriously, l like that roof mod, if l keep the 1952 dodge 5 window truck l have out back, that would look cool

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

taking the hump out of the door looks good, the fenderless look will go good with the direction you're truck going.

keep the updates coming.

Later

I really like the look of all the windows around the cab being the same height, definitely gets my vote... It jsut gives it that lok like it was that way from the factory, even though you know its been chopped

I got the frame finished up today so I can start putting things together.

Snake Farm- I agree, these cabs have a huge wind shield. Even after chopping
4 1/2" it's still big. I'm either going to lower the top line of it or put a visor on.
Great suggestion, thanks.

Tim-OK Thanks for the kind words.

Dirty Rat- The windows in this cab almost made me pass on it. They are looking better to me now but still need yo work on them a little.
My biggest problem right now is getting some phase of this thing finished. I'm all over the please on it.
By the way I'm liking your build.

Thanks,
POPS

Would love to see the pics of the 50-60 dodges you spoke of... I'm hooked on the 41-47 dodge trucks...
Maybe someday!

I hear you on the "getting something to its completed stage" sometimes its overwhelming... I have been bouncing around from thing to thing and not completing things....

Hey Dirty Rat,

Funny you should mention 42-47 models, that's exactly what
I trying to buy.

I think he is high on his prices. Maybe not for complete trucks.

The 47 got a little hot from a fuel tank fire.

These are the only pics I took cause this is what I'm interested in.
