        Hello. Here is an updated picture of my '40 Chevy 3/4-ton pickup. From the before shot at the bottom to here ... almost four years ago!

From Ken,

         Well it's been a long time since I sent any updates. To this point, I have stripped the truck down and sandblasted the frame and finished it with Por-15. Installed new kingpins, water pump, clutch, pressure plate, and throw-out bearing. Luckily, just minor adjustments to the motor and a new coat of paint.

         After looking in vain for a decent set of metal fenders, I gave up and went with fiberglass ones. At first glance, you wouldn't be able to tell. I also painted the interior back to the original color and updated the looks of the instrument panel with a kit from Jim Carter's. The cab, front clip and running boards are in black primer.

         Still a long way to go, but I have been around the block a couple of times -- what a great feeling that was!!!!!!!

Thanks,

         I purchased this truck about six months ago. I am the third owner. It's all original and I am restoring it back that way except for the rims. I have been looking for replacement metal fenders but with no luck -- so I am using glass instead.

         Amazingly, all of the chrome cleaned up to look like new. I'm in the process of sand blasting the frame and shooting it with POR 15.

         I'll send updated pictures later.

Thanks,
