    Yes, having trouble finding time to get my projects done.

    But other than that, to answer your first question, the only thing I see you doing wrong, is starting with a Ford.

    Kidding of course, have fun.

    Education is expensive. Keep that in mind, and you'll never be terribly upset when a project goes awry.

    A few of us have been complaining of a slow acting site. I've lost a post or two as well.
    The "powers that be", are aware of it but not sure what can be done so we're trying to be calm and patient as they all have day jobs just like us!

    Try posting a pic (or two) and see if it / they get through...

    I've had issues some days too. But I just wait a bit and clear my cookies, come back and I can get it to work ok. Navy, what are your plans for the X member?

    There have been some major internet upsets the past 2-3 weeks - I've lost a post or two here and a couple other non-automotive sites I frequent. Then for whatever reason, this site runs slow occasionally though for some reason I usually don't have the same level of problems many of the others report.

    Navy - that is a daunting project you have taken on - but sometimes those are the most fun, especially when done and you have a photographic record to go back to and relive the 'pain'

    It amazes me how many rodders in the USA fit parallel ladder bars, They just don't work !!! They just turn the rear axle into a big anti roll bar.

    Nice truck though.

    Its aweful lonesome in the saddle since my horse died.

    That happens sometimes with new folks 'round here. It's because of spammers and it's to prevent or limit it.. Once you clear a certain number of posts, you'll be all set. Sometimes the mods see your genuine and lift that restriction right away.

    34 40 Thanks for the reply, I kinda figured it might be something like that. Can you or anybody else out there tell me for sure what year the cab on my truck is ? I know it's not a 40 because of the gas tank filler hole in the cab. With the hole does it make it a 42-47 model cab ? Want to order sheet metal for the floor and don't want to get it wrong. Thanks.

    Try this link = 1947 ford pickup - Bing Images

    I "binged" 1947 ford, that's what it looks like to me, but your first picture doesn't really show the hood / grille so I'm guessing.

    Here's another picture. I know the frame, bed and nose are correct for the year but the cab ? I could be a 47.

    Hey Navy, welcome to CHR!!
    I look at a bunch of '40pics https://www.google.com/search?q=1940...w=1517&bih=714



    and a bunch of '47 pics 1947 ford pickup - Bing Images

    and I really can't tell the difference except for the gas filler location.

    I'm not sure if you're intending to go stock with the floor or not but after-market sheet metal companies like Direct Sheet Metal list the same floor boards for '40-'47 Vintage Ford Sheet Metal!

    Looks like a great project!!
