    That's an understatement.
    When I saw the pics of them when you were building them I thought: 'Crikey he's going to have his work cut out to make something out of them.'
    And then you show us these pics.
    Wow!
    I can only imagine the work and effort that has gone in to making them what they are.

    Did some catching up on your thread, wow wow wow! Everything looks amazing, and the dustless sandblasting looks like the way to go. I couldn't help but notice your Mustang II adjustment slots are nearly maxed out just like mine. I've been doing a lot of reading on them, and apparently the top spring pocket should be welded on an inch further back than what the instructions say, The bumpers look amazing!!!

    Yeah they have some imperfections that you can see better in person, we are looking for the flaws though?

    My cousin rounded up some material for me from his work, I went and picked it up and we was able to get some brackets made for the rotisserie.

    Finally moved the stuff over to the paint booth.

    Took the Fordy Stalker out for a burn while we had it out since it was parked in the paint booth.

    Got the cab all mounted to the rotisserie, now to come up with a game plan, I think we will tackle the bed first, got our work cut out.

    If I do a crazy build again I'm definitely going to look into a rotisserie!

    It's definitely going to make the final body work and paint a lot easier, they used this building the 57 wagon as well.

    My brother has been laying down all metal on the worst areas of the truck before we do primer, the bed subframe has been painted with some single stage that I used on the chassis. I got a bunch of days off in June I hope we can start getting to laying down the paint.

    I had to catch up on your progress too. I absolutely love those split front bumpers, the rear gravel shield work, all of it. It is looking fantastic. I thought for a minute about putting split bumpers on my 40 but I think I'm just going bumper less. The grill chin will get mashed with or without a bumper. My car sets so low the bumper might protect from curbs but not much else.

    Yeah I opted to not do the drop spindles on my truck so I don't think I will have chin scraping problems, My brother took his off the coupe cause of tire rubbing but he wants to go back and maybe try a different tire/wheel combo to prevent the rubbing. Bumpers are purely cosmetic, I do think they look great bumperless too, I am just going for being a little more unique out there.

    Had to take a little mini vacation and get a break from truck stuff before we go to town on it the rest of this month.

    Just part of our best idea? National Parks and these were taken in the first one that began 150 years ago now. Yellowstone.
