Be glad that when you had it blasted bondo was the worst you found. When they began blasting my panel, no bondo was found, but lots of rust was removed leaving many holes to be welded and patched. Some areas, such as the rear fenders couldn't even be repaired only replaced.

Oh nice, well, I guess I'd better be grateful then! smile The rear right fender on mine is borderline replace, but we have a metal machinist that can make anything, he is now making the running board aprons, so maybe he can make patches for the fender that will cost less than buying a whole fender! Well, I forgot to bring the camera to show all the pickup, but hopefully next time I'll remember! smile

Well, update on rear passenger and front driver fender is we had pieces made where the rib side piece that goes down along the side of the fenders were gone. Lots of little detail body work but otherwise nothing else, hopefully will have more pictures soon! smile Keep you posted...

Cab is finished with body work, front fenders are nearly there, the rear fenders are coming on along real nice, hood is finished, just about done with body work, don't have any pictures yet, but hopefully we will get some soon. I've slowed down the process a little bit because I have other farm related projects needing more money put into it than the 38, so just trying to keep it going a little at a time. I will post pictures as soon as I get some. Thank you for stopping by! smile

It's been a month since I last posted and I just felt like updating, again without any pictures, I wasn't able to go the other day because things came up at work. Anyway, they're putting the brand new bed from MAR-K parts together with the pine wood flooring! The fenders are done just little detail work but the big jobs are done! The mechanics' computer took a dive before he was able to send pictures so, hopefully soon I'll be getting some this week. I have been slowing down the process a little bit because Iím buying a farm here in Nevada through a farm bank in Kentucky and the FSA here in Nevada. So things are tight financially here for me, but I really wasnít planning to buy a farm this soon but here I am and Iím going to work at it the best as I can with Godís help and also hope this very fun 38 Chevy project will get done soon! :P Thanks for stopping by, as soon as I get pictures Iíll be posting them, and A LOT! &#61514;

Hello all, glad I was able to go look at the old pickup, things are coming right along, The cab is pretty much done with the body work on it, just replacing the sheet of metal that would eventually rust out soon at the bottom front corner. Back fender is amazing at how well it turned out!!!!! And it costed less than buying a whole different fender. The front radiator/hood mount piece is the roughest shape of metal now, everything else is ready to get some color on it! smile Once all the body work is done, my brother and I will head over to Carson City to put the majority of it together! Iím so excited. The guy at the shop had pictures of the rear fenders before-during-after, but his computer took a dive but at least he still has it on a drive that all the pictures are saved on. So we are getting closer and closer to getting done little by little. Farming is up a running full now, so Iím glad I found the shop in Carson City to do body work and paint at least, I can do the easy ďfunĒ stuff! Thanks for stopping by, Iíll be keeping you posted as often as I can.

We'll see, I always enjoy going to them and seeing all the cars and pickups cruising around. I might not be there this year because we are having a very late start in farming, we usually have our first crop of alfalfa baled by now and we don't have anything even cut yet because of the wet weather, but I'd rather have wet weather than be stuck in a drought. smile I'm going back next Thursday so maybe I might have more of a time figure when it will be done. I'm just having the shop where it's at do the body work and paint it since I have no time for either.

Oh, Nevada! I'm dumbfounded at how you've tackled that project and gotten SO much done in such a short time! CONGRATULATIONS! wave

I have hope now. Maybe I really will tackle that '37 of mine sometime. SWEET!
