From Shayne :

Howdy! I joined your forum just recently, but have been reading the Stovebolt pages for a couple of years now. I have wanted one of these Art Deco trucks for half my life, (I am 39) and this is my first. I have had it for one year and have played with it a bit.

My truck is a 1946 Chevy 1/2-ton. I acquired it as an "eight year, on-going project." In other words, it was last worked on in 1999 or 2000 (by the previous owner).

This truck has a 355 SBC, TH350, 3.42 posi, 4 wheel power disk brakes, Chevelle manual steer front clip, 4" chopped and section top, bow tie back glass [ picture of the rear ].

I will be tearing this truck back down to the bare frame and then going back to a finished (well, ahem, at least in words anyway) project.

I know I will be in the forums asking a lot of questions. This will be an extensive work in progress for me. I will be cutting the cab door jambs (to clean the chopped roof job) to the frame, ie -- rear frame clip, 4 link set up, fuel cell, boxing of the frame, etc.

I am a self employed welder / fabricator here in the East Texas Oilfields and there is no shortage of work. Seeing as how my work is not dictated by a time clock, the '46 has been really patient with me and this is my favorite territory.

Thanks for your time.
