Thanks Rob, but I don't think you want to do that. Have you checked into freight up here and back? big_eek And besides, those were just inner fenders and such. And I didn't show you up close. Everything looks good from 50 feet away. wink

Used black sand blaster on my side mount spare tire assembly. The paint under the black which I did 44 years did not have the original color. Is this item painted the same color as the truck or black. Doc.


Currently making 1954 3100 better than new

Don't know for sure, but I suspect bolt on accessories like your spare mount were painted black. Sounds like me - not being able to remember. wink

I got my last fender, RF, prepped and primered today. The sandblasting revealed a couple pinholes in some of my weld repairs. Zapped them and finshed them and shot the primer on. it was another bluebird day, weather-wise.

Door windows/wing windows installed in my 54!! What a PITA... drivers side works great, passenger side binds up a little bit and gets hard to roll up/down - need to look into that some more

Got the driver's side cab corner welded in today

Got a reminder of the "measure twice - cut once" axiom. blush Pic is upside down because the cab is also upside down.
Fortunately I didn't go to far before I realized I had screwed up. Was able to weld up the extra cut. 10 years from now, no one will remember I messed up. grin

Installed the newly acquired, original heater hose clamp that was missing since I bought the truck in ‘08. I’ve had the hoses zip tied to the fender support rod all this time. Finally decided to do it the right way. The hoses laid nicely in the channel on the inner fender, and I was able to put a small lock washer on the back side to keep everything snug. I think it turned out nicely.
It was a nice way to start my morning before church service starts online.

Finished the install of the front tube shocks on the '47, installed the rebuilt starter, and changed the transmission oil. The starter stopped a few months ago just after I had done a valve adjustment. So the truck sat for several months while I was doing too many non-truck-related activities. Once I got the starter out, rebuilt, and reinstalled, the truck fired up on the 3rd try and runs smoother than before the valve adjustment.

It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to paint it.

Spent part of the afternoon working on the old truck. Started out by adding a quart of oil, then one thing lead to another.....

1. Fixed a leak on my Mico brand emergency brake system
2. Tightened all the screws on the two door panels
3. Tightened all the screws around the windshield trim
4. Tightened the set screws on both door handles and both window cranks
5. Tightened the two big Phillips screws on the 3-speed shifter handle clamp. They were real loose!
6. Tightened the two screws on the interior light
7. Adjusted and tightened the door striker plates
8. Tightened both sun visor mounting brackets
9. Tightened the glove box hinges
10. Put a full charge on the 6 volt battery

I was amazed at how many screws were really loose!

My weekend was spent prepping my frame and then painting it with Rust Bullet. Found out that I'm SOOOOOO not a pro when it comes to spray guns. smile

Re-installed my taillights, and got them working again... need to figure out why my hazard lights aren't working, but it has brake lights and turn signals which are the most important!
