Box is mounted, the mounts were a real time consuming project. I found it pretty amazing, but the second box mounting bolts from the rear fell right into the factory holes on the Chevy frame.
If the weather improves tomorrow I will roll it outside for some pictures.

First two pics are the cab mounts

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Mounts look great.
It's funny how sometimes parts kind of , almost, interchange between brands. I have always said that the engineers of these different brands of cars must have all hung out at the same bar after work.....

Thanks Torchie, funny part is I shortened the frame 10 inches in the kick-up behind the cab without any consideration of the box bolts.

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.

Default New adventure in pain

So Saturday night after welding in the box mounts, laying on the floor straining to get my old fat body up high enough to see what I was welding, I had a pain in my neck like a I pulled muscle. Sunday the pain continued getting worse as the day progressed to the point I only slept about an hour Sunday night. Monday morning went to work at 330 AM really shouldn't have, ended up in emergency at 6 AM with what felt like a heart attack. 7 AM i'm on my back in the white van with all the lights headed to the city. By 8:30 AM I have wires and tubes hooked everywhere, the pain in my chest every time I took a breath was worse than anything I had ever experinced. Found out it was my heart, not a heart attack, but a viral infection in the lining of the heart called Pericarditis. Once they figured it out and what drugs to fix it, they had me turned around and back home late yesterday afternoon. Worst part is they have no idea how it happens or why, and once you have had it, it can be chronic.

I googled Pericarditis
Let's hope it was only from working on your back stressing the sack around your heart and won't be chronic.
I'm not in the medical field, read about it on the Mayo Clinic site.
