    You guys do such nice work! I'm certain this truck will be a showstopper once you finish it.

    The doors look great! And your approach, using the Speedway rears to get it done is the right approach too, IMO. No sense sidelining the whole project when you can push toward the finish.

    The speedway fenders are priced better, I am sure we can work them, the Wescott's are a lot more costly and I hear better, we will be fine though. Not really derailing the build just a pain to get parts and those rear fenders are probably the easiest body part to change out later. I'll get a midwest early ford bed ordered soon plus lots of other Nickle and Dime stuff.

    I actually needed to clear my roller rockers with some taller valve covers, I planned on changing them out at some point anyway, I think I made the right choice with these Ansen covers, matches with the serpentine kit, not advertising a brand anymore than I already am and hints at the engine size since I know many will ask.

    Those speedway glass fenders are pretty stout, we are going to have to work them anyway but should get the job done until we can get around to repairing my original steel ones in the future.

    Still messing with door alignment stuff, anyone know of any tips and tricks to get cab movement, we have shimmed under the cab between it and the cab mounting wood and that helps a little to get it to tweak some, we also put a shim in the lower door hinge to raise it but I am wondering what other methods can be done.

    Still plugging away at cab stuff.

    Seat belts have been mounted, buckles are in too, wasn't there for installation didn't get a photo.

    Midwest Early Ford sent me this package the other day that we have to put together.

    Oh and my doors are lined up now but that cab is not square, huge gaps on both doors, not much we can do outside of chasing it for months so it is good enough, we will weld material to the edges of the doors to make it "look" better.

    Nice work! Heck, if it was quick and easy everyone would build a Hot Rod!

    You're doing a real quality job and should be proud of the work you've accomplished, it's going to be killer when it's done. Keep up the good work!

    My cousin says basically the same to me. "If it was easy, everyone would be doing it."

    I will disagree with you on that one! You've brought it a long way already!
