Default back in the saddle

Moved the chassis home from the farm. No trailer, no problem. Got the front half of the chassis in my GMC, and the boys loaded the back half on their work truck. Much appreciate their help.

Got power and coffee at home, can work some in the evening, plus its not 20 miles away. Will be welding the chassis together this week. Glad to be back at it.

Default inside

Got the chassis unloaded and set up inside with wheels back on. My son will weld it. I'm learning, best if he does it. Opened up some space at the farm, so we moved the 52 inside. Bees were not happy with me. Another winter outside and maybe the hood would match the rest of the truck

Had to chase these 2 black tail off two weeks ago, almost got my wifes tulips.

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

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 Thanks guys

That Pilot looks nice Torchie. Good for us tall folk. I'm 6'3" also and fit fine in a Dodge Pilot. Wood it interfere with the CC build . Pun intended.

super great! best way to learn is to weld thick stuff, teaches you to really burn it in there and not just poop on top like a caulking gun.


bees are good, wasps are b-tards.

cant wait to see this thing rolling, what a great truck.

Default weld it

Got the chassis welded back together. Learned some things today. My attempt to do vertical welds created bird poop. My son handled these for me. I did some horizontal welds that should be fine. Found a date stamp from June 1982, it also says "Parish" on there. The chassis was made in Shreveport. Vehicle history is fun.
