I have some 8 lug wheel spacers. Easy to make some 10 lug, just labor.

May I ask how you intend to mount the lumber to the frame? I am pondering a similar modification in the future, but to a flat bed. Have a few ideas, but not sure what the "right/easy" way is. Thanks.

Man that looks good.
I'm hoping to do that with an advance design 4100 or 6100 some day ( I have the front clip, cab, and bed, just need the frame)

Hello Scott,

It is a great looking truck! Could you please take some photographs of the inside of the cabin showing how the windscreen is tilted up? How far can the windscreen tilt up?

I just posted a thread about tilting windscreens - ID WWII Truck...

Kind regards
Lionel

The 9' bed looks good on your truck. I would like to do that also on my 1935 1 ton.

Thanks, I borrowed a driver side A-D fender from a neighbor. Locally, I'm looking for a pair of my own.

If you aren't concerned with original sheet metal, you can get reproduction advance design fenders on rock auto for ~$300 each

Getting closer*. The gas tank needs to be pulled and cleaned, lots of rust keeps getting past the filter (just put in a new one and it's already getting rust bits in it).
While I'm doing that, I'm going to pull the bed, weld in the inner fender and then mount the bed on the frame.
Here's a one minute video of the truck from a few angles....

*thanks to Wheelie for the shifting housing, fixed my gear grinding and popping out of gear.
