I just wanted to say hi and that the site is probably the best help I've gotten since acquiring my 1950 3100. I just recently(I think yesterday) became a member, even though I've known about the site for a couple of months. You guys have an outstanding amount of unlimited knowledge, and I look forward to dealing with everyone!!

Welcome! I'm working on a '50 3100 too. Plenty of help on this site for sure.

Thanks Drew. Just out of curiosity, what kind of shape is yours in? Mine's pretty rough (actually, she's been called a bucket of rust), but I think that's the best kind to have. Not too far gone that it's not worth it, and not too nice that I'd feel bad by making cuts.

HaHaha,Thinking about what shape it was in(and in some respect still in)makes me laugh because when I went and looked at it for the first time I didn't see all the stuff needed to be done.I just wanted to buy it. I drove it occasionally for a year before I had to start a rebuild. The frame cracked badly one day! So now I'm in the process of a frame off rebuild,not a restoration.
So it's been a learning curve, but in many ways enjoyable.

Oouch!!! A cracked frame is never a good one. I'm fortunate enough to have a really good frame underneath of her, but I can't drive it by sitting on a frame rail! The body's pretty bad, well atleast the floors, bed, fenders...let's just say everything except the actual cab! My goal is to have her done and a daily driver by May. It's gonna be a feet, but I have the means and will power to get it done. The main reason I set my deadline for May is because that's when drag racing season starts. I think she'll be a great addition to my club.

So how much do I have to pay or what do I have to trade to get good accurate advice?
