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

Impressive. Looks like the back slice will be more challenging, but you have proven you have the eye. Looking forward to watching.

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.

Thanks Skip, I think the back will be easier as the swoop line runs parallel to the top, so it's just a matter of cutting a 5.5 inch piece out just in front of the box cap.

Oh, good to hear. It didn't look like it to me. Shortening the 47 Chevy bed I used was much easier. Again, nice work.

Finally got a shipment of parts in. 2 inch drop spindles and triangulated four link with bags. I did lot of reading and found both good and bad but a very good ebay rating for Chassis Tech.

The spindles are advertised as American made and are very nice looking units that fit very well. If I hadn't had to fight with the cotter pins in the lower ball joints they would have installed in 30 minute each.

The four link and bags look real good and well put together, the only thing I noticed is the link arms are right hand thread on both ends.





Photo of the left side spindle installed.



Right side about to get installed.

I've used their products several time and the thread issue is the only thing that could have been better.

Nice job on the box.
I helped a guy that wanted to section a Ford shoe box once and when I showed up he had it marked for cutting by just taking a 3 inch section from around the middle of the whole car.
No allowances for wheel openings, body lines, etc.
Nice to see something different being done to what some would consider to be sort of an ugly duckling.
