    Steve: Thanks for looking, no Tech hasn't posted back but there maybe no info available since the block was decked.

    Received my 1st new piece of sheet metal today, not impressed at all. The valleys were high and the mountains were low, to the tune of about 1/3 the original sheet metal. I won't buy from that company again.
    Who do you guys purchase your sheet metal from when you need it ?

    What type of sheet metal are you talking about?

    Didn't want to criticize anybody but now that you ask. It was from Mac's and it was a complete front floor section, runs from the seat to the toe boards. I just expected better.

    Dave at Direct is good people and I strongly suggest you give him a try if your in the need for firewalls or floor kits. Known Dave for about 20 years now and he's a stand up guy and does a lot for the Hot Rod community!

    Another source with a good reputation for truck tin/panels is Northern Classic Trucks: Northern Classic Trucks - Reproduction parts for your antique Ford truck .

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.

    1 May 40 Ford

     



    Today I set the cab back on the frame to check that all holes with nuts welded to them would line up. Also to see how my wooden spacers were. Wanted to do this before I started boxing in the frame as seen in picture.

    Should finish the drivers side tomorrow, at least tacking it in place.

    Well Here's an update too my 40. I got the rear installed and started the cross member section of the frame.




    Received the new radiator and it looks great, now if I only had a engine together so I could set the motor mounts and get the spacing set for the radiator and fan assy. etc. Shocks and mounting are the next thing after I finish the cross member. Any inputs let me have them please.
