Got my inner fender apron modified and mounted... including the welting. Wrapped the driver side header and next up is to butcher the inner fender on that side. Not sure I'll be able to replace spark plugs without removing the fenders... joy

Also spent some time finishing the brake lines and modifying the universal Model A brake mount to better fit the truck.

yikes... it's been awhile since I've updated this thread. Mostly getting some small jobs done as of late...
  • working on the doors to get them ready for paint
  • modified the scoop to clear the hood
  • made some adjustments to the floor so that it clears the brake pedal
  • added the last piece of dash trim
  • mounted the throttle pedal and the transmission cooler
  • and I’m undecided if I like the baby moons on the truck

Modified the drivers side inner fender panel and got the fender back on. It's looking more like a truck again...sort of.

Did some mock up work with the bed to check tire clearance the 275's. The wood bed blocks weren't in place so the bed and the fender will rise by another 1.5inches, but my pseudo math calculations worked out. Wheel is pretty well centered and I have total tire clearance.
First time in a while that it looked like a real truck... until I dismantled everything.

Been a couple of slow weeks as I tweaked my ankle, which made getting around a little tough.

Finished off the fender welting, installed the support rods. Started contemplating the wiring harness routing and mounted the ignition box.

Weather is finally getting good enough to paint again... Rad also got a shot of flat black since the shiny aluminum looked out of place to me.

The finish on your doors is absolutely stunning. Do you paint for a living?
