  • Trial fit !

    Bolted on my fenders, splash shields, and running boards today. It is a good fit, so I was going to pull them off tomorrow and get them painted.

    Called the Jury duty line tonight and now I get to serve my Government tomorrow. Always something getting in my way on this AA.

    Should be running soon enough anyway Thanks Beau for showing me it can get done, if you have enough socks

      Beau, last time on jury duty ( just before heading to Tennessee) we had a hung jury. One juror didn't want to send the guy to jail, even though he said he did it ! All day trying to change his mind, although I did enjoy the experience.

    ooh purdy - original to the truck i take it? Im still in the make it fit phase. Between fitting fenders from different vehicles, straightening the fender brackets, and getting everything else to line up its been rather pain. My fenders fit the frame holes perfectly, got them lined up on the headlight bar , got one side pretty good when it comes to the outer hole but other side is a crapshoot. Then i gotta straighten the fenders, fix some spots in em that are iffy test fit again then start fixing holes in splash aprons...

      SS, not original, but I'm glad I found some good used fenders. That save me a lot of time and the splash aprons and running boards fit well. I was little surprised at how well it matched up.

      SS, the cool thing I learned the other day was the radiator has a hood hold up latch on it, but then you knew that already !! It holds the hood up good and high too

      GEEZ !! It's raining here right now The ponds we have here, are spring fed and the were on the high side. I figured the spillway was plugged again, but it wasn't. The spring is pushing water out like crazy right now. You stay safe and dry down there ED.

      Right now Sarah is SOL sitting in the garage with her engine in parts and can't move to high ground and I don't have flood coverage for her either. Just keeping my fingers crossed. I'd pray but heathen prayers aren't worth a wooden nickel.

      Jim, the fellow that had started the restoration already did a lot. Running gear was restored and the flat bed was made. (Mahogany) All I have to do is the metal work, glass, trim, and engine, so my hats off to Fred Spading !! Pat
