Well, now I'm buying a whole new bed that is original specs with all original flooring and such. It would cost much less to buy the bed new than have them fix it, such mine had a lot of cracks and dings. No rust throughs, but it just would be just about as much to buy the new bed, but I wouldn't have all the wood, center strips and such. The engine just got fixed today so I'm going to pick it up. We're getting closer and closer. Thanks for stopping!

That is fantastic progress you're making Leighton. I wish my project were moving that fast. You're gonna have a great looking ride when you're done. Good luck on making your deadline.

Allrighty,
Brought back the old 216 and it's ready to roll. Getting the bell housing cleaned up and waiting for clutches and pressure plate to put all together! http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/1938%20Chevy%20Pickup/IMG_1630.jpg
Ordered a brand new bed from MAR-K (Really Nice Place!) Everything from the pine wood to bolts! Water pump and thermostat is getting ready to be remanufactured (they're a little rough. Things are rollin' along! MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Okay, put the exhaust manifold, fuel pump, spark plug distributer, and carburetor on the engine, waiting for the water pump and thermostat to be fixed and put on the motor to be completed. Itís a little slow right now, waiting for pickup bed to arrive, other miscellaneous parts before we blast and paint it. Still need to do the seat upholstery, re-chrome my grille, handles, and other misc. odds and ends. So thereís still a lot to do before itís finished. But just taking it one step at a time and having a ball every step! Thanks for stopping by, hopefully Iíll have more pictures soon! Happy New Years!

Well, I don't know what happened, but the pictures aren't showing and I haven't touched anything. So, what I'm doing is putting the link of my album, and you can look around at all the pictures if you want to
http://s1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/ , then as I go on, I'll add them and so forth. Sorry about that, but I just noticed the links were not working and I'm just fixing the problem. Talk to you next year! smile

Well, still about the same as last time, but I do have the bed coming in next week as well as my water pump, so those will be checked off the list, and hopefully be taking in the seat soon and motor to assemble to blast. Pictures coming soon of the blasting!

I took the motor, seats, bellhouseing, everything left here at the shop I took to the body shop in Carson City! I was able to see the frame and it was very clean and looked almost new! smile The compressor broke down Thursday so they didn't get done blasting my pickup till today. We're getting closer and closer! Thanks for stopping by and will be keeping you in touch!
