    Got to drive dads old 40 for the first time ever on Sunday.

    Been dealing with a little health issues the last few weeks but I am starting to get my bearings straight again.

    Rear bumper brackets on the truck have been getting shortened up. Still need to build some rollpan/filler panels and then hopefully move to the front bumper.

    How cool is THAT! That's a PermaGrin experience!

    Glad your health issue has settled out for you. That bumper placement looks spot on. Gonna be a very cool truck!

    It was fun, I have some fond memories of riding in the back of it when I was a kid, Eagles, Charlie Daniels Band etc. playing on the 8 track in the glove box.

    Rear bumper is fully mounted, original bolts deleted.

    Still need to figure out some filler panels, not so sure I like the roll pan look on these trucks, makes the bed look even taller than it already is, maybe something like we was doing with paperboard today.

    Started messing with the front bumper stuff today too, coming up with a game plan, I know how it's gonna look, just a matter of making that happen, I think the one we used on the back was a front bumper and the one we are using in the front is a truck rear bumper, doesn't really line up right which is fine cause we are cutting it up.

    I like the idea of covering the irons in the back. Some added "ribs" for strength and to give the eye "a distraction".. I'm not certain if the 39/40's used a frame cover over the running boards & below the front bed ahead of the wheels.. Maybe these could be "matched" to pull the theme together? If they exist at all.. LOL.

    Or just tell me to shaddup! HAH! 8-)

    Yeah we will probably bead roll some ribs in it to match the running boards. There is a small filler panel that sits in front of the rear fender and under the bed.

    Made it up today to check on the front bumper stuff... My cousin gave me some original bumpers years back so this is what we are using on the truck, I will get them down to Ogden Chrome when they are done, along with my original hood ornament stuff (I don't even think Bob Drake is getting repop stuff made?)

    I like that a lot. Will the bumper remain split in two pieces or will you fill in the section between the two sides?
    Would you be willing to trace the bumper mounts on a paper and send it to me? I really like that.

    It will be a split bumper, should follow the shape of the fenders at about 1 1/2" away, other end is getting rounded similar to the outer ends. I don't think copying the mounts would work unless you copy the bumper as well, those should be a bit easier than the bumpers, the outer one we can just bend back towards the fender, the inner one will have to be cut and probably heated and bent with a sharp curve to be able to attach again, hole re-drilled. I am cutting up some aftermarket Bob Drake mounts.

    Still working on building a jig to curl the ends of my bumperettes. Here's the two in progress.

    Also got to go for a few burns in this stang today, friend of my brothers, retired Air Force Veteran. Was doing some data logging trying to get the stacks to run properly, has a stumble/hesitation going on.
