    We had debated on doing bedliner and body paint on my running boards, decided against it, they're just going to have to get scratched up and chipped.

    Also nice to start putting on small detail items here and there, so many boxes of parts sitting around collecting dust for years now.

    Been busy with other life things, still need to sand the front fenders and a few small panels to get the rest ready for base coat. Slow progress but it will be done this year.

    Stopped by the shop, someone has been busy with the bedside wood. I like it.

    Both the bedside wood mock up is in place, still going to get some more work done to them but I like it. Should be close to laying down base coat on the rest of the truck soon.

    Also was able to get another transmission in my old Jeep and drive it around the block, I have had it 24 years next month. Still needs some work done before I start driving it again, I am just happy I can move it around under its own power.

    Thanks, I'll deal with Jeep stuff more later. We have some more sanding coming up. It's not without flaws but I am more than happy with it, flaws and all. We are not pros.

    We still have to do this process to the underside of the hood and rear filler panel next week.

    Nothing big going on except sanding. I am hoping we can sand everything and be okay with it, I would prefer not to reshoot any clear.

    Even the bottom of the hood has color and clear.

    Also had some rocker guards made for the jeep to go with the fenders, my old rocker guards wouldn't fit.

    Paint is KILLER, and so are the new rocker guards!

    Two pieces ready for cutting compound. We'll see how long it takes us to get all this stuff finished. I am so ready to be done, currently still have zero excitement about it and I really struggle to spend my free time working on it. I am hoping once assembly starts that will change. We are brainstorming ideas to display and share our story at Autorama with all three of our 40 fords together.

    Body work and paint is not the fun stuff. You'll get your reward when it starts going together.

    Still a bunch of sanding clear coat going on, things are getting close to everything getting
    to the cutting compound stage.

    Neighbor has the seats mostly finished, I'm happy with them, this is his first time doing leather upholstery.
