    Meh, I would be more likely to get the Rona at work or grocery shopping than at a car show, but we got trucks to build and jobs to work. Biggest part of car shows is socializing and making new friends, that's where the trouble spreads. Another year, another time.

    Thanks.

    Which coupe? My cousins with the Hemi? Both coupes are garage built regardless outside of interior. Although my cousin has some details that his students helped out with when he was teaching welding at Job Corps.

    Yes sir! Thanks. I've been back and forth with putting a gen 3 Hemi in my 40 but decided to keep the gen 1.

    I believe his engine and trans came out of an srt8 magnum or something. Has a stage 3 tune on it, gets the job done, I believe he was getting 26 miles to the gallon on the freeway on one of our road trips down south.

    Buddy of mine went to Good Guys yesterday and sent me some pictures of two 40 pickups and one 41, good looking trucks but during my build as I look at others most of them seem like the same cookie cutter style builds, original flathead restorations, small block chevys and some with Ford engines, all with the same parts from the same catalog? Hopefully mine will stand out and at the same time be deceiving. ;-)

    Not much to share in way of photos but we have been tackling more cab stuff, trying to build brackets for everything that will attach to the firewall inside the cab without drilling any holes (heater, ignition control, coil, wiring harness, gas pedal) I'll get pics of all that when I have something to take a picture of, need to get a few more things ordered that will need holes such as dual wiper kit, floor mount park brake.

    Four coats of paint really makes the stripping fun, I guess you could call it job security?

    If that is what it takes, so be it, I am doing okay with the panels, it'll be a head turner truck, just wait.

    I've gotten most the panels stripped in my spare time, the cab I may go ahead and call the mobile blaster. I really wish I could find a passenger rear fender but have had zero luck so far, I am asking around at some local shops on fixing the one I have and it's super expensive... I would prefer not to use glass but worst case I get glass rears. We also have the option of buying our own English wheel and fixing it ourselves (basically rebuild almost the whole thing)

    Still working on some cab stuff

    This driver rear doesn't look too bad, lots of little dents and dings but I think we can hammer and shrink all that stuff. Also put the coupe tail lights in.

    Here is what has been happening to seat mount stuff retaining the original seat riser, keeping it clean and being able to hide items underneath.

    It's coming along very nice, the space under the seats should come in very handy.

    I think so too, probably hide some stereo stuff under the passenger side.

    Here is how them door panels looked after I got them mostly stripped, was gonna epoxy primer them today and ran out of time. Lots of stuff coming up soon, hopefully before first snowfall. I am just going to roll with the cheap speedway rear fiberglass fenders for now and get the truck done, maybe sometime in the future we will tackle the fenders I have and make them good again.

    Thanks for the update, those doors look very nice. Without looking, the speedway fenders must be pretty reasonable.
