The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

I agree 100%

Thanks guys! Even though it was a lot of work to make relatively small changes, it turned out looking the way I wanted it to and I'm happy with the result.

Starting cancer treatments beginning with the pass side quarter. Tacked in a fresh piece, next will be to patch up the rocker panel and get it welded back in place. Drivers side is worse, 1/2 of the rocker is rotten so more intensive fab will be needed on it This body is far from cherry, both wheel tubs need rust repair, some rot around the front and rear window frames, the whole rear pan is beat up, and the firewall looks like a well used dart board. But what fun would it be if it didn't need work?? On the plus side, the fenders and doors have already had the metal repair done....

You brought the Cadillac back to life so anything is possible.

I know that work was several years ago but I am still a fan of the car

The "Little" stuff is always the most work ZZ.
It is also the least noticeable to John Q Public but not to a builder.
Looking great.
