    Thanks for the reply's guys. I was hoping to drive the truck this summer but I'm going back to work (6 year lay off) building another WW1 airplane so that will put an end to any major amount of work getting done. I'll have some cash flow for the truck and maybe I'll make better use of my time.

    Congrats on getting back to work!! I don't think anyone would mind if you started a thread on that airplane you're about to build.....

    Sorry to hear of the work stopping, but I'm all for watching you construct an old air plane. Especially any early war type plane. Oh, congrats on getting back to work too.

    .... and appropriately, since that's Navy's build!

    Navy, I agree 100% that an airplane build thread would be a very cool addition to this forum. Others may disagree, but if you start a build thread in some other place please let me know where, as I'd love to follow.

    I don't think I'd be starting a thread for this , this would be the wrong forum. Its a job that I love doing but its not anything that gets me excited like a good looking, tire smoking, great handling, Fast and louder than hell Hotrod. I will post a few pic's along the way just to share.

    Well, if you feel this is the wrong forum, please tell us where you will be posting it along. In all honesty, this forum has a non hot rod area and this build will fit in great!

    What do you think ? I'm replacing the original hood latch with one from a Olds 88. My plan is to put the latch/catch/springloaded with cable release part on the hood so that I can use the original hood release. It will be mounted in a plate of sorts that replaces the original cross member /latch part. Inputs welcome.

    I think I see what you're trying to do and it looks like it'll work just fine. Besides... you've already tackled harder jobs than ths one! LOL..

    Navy, it'll work either way but when I see that solid upright part across the body portion it seems to me it would be in my belly every time I leaned over the engine, especially trying to get into the back back to work on something. I think I'd put it on the hood where I could bump my head on it instead.... Latch on the body, projecting bolt on the hood makes more sense to me.

    Good point Roger.. Pun Intended!

    I don't think I'd prefer that banging into my skull.. Heavy blanket would cover it up and make it tolerable to my padded belly.. LOL..
