Spent most of the weekend mowing lawn, trimming weeds, and cleaning flower beds. But we did take the '47 out for a spin. Also warmed up the wife's Corvair.

I spent 20 hours scraping 60 years of crud off my frame forward of the firewall. Then I washed it all down with mineral spirits and gave it a good coat of paint. At 61, it pretty much of an ordeal crawling around on your back for the better part of a day but it was rewarding to see it finished. One more thing off the list.

Finally got the '62 235 mounted in the '36 1.5 ton frame, had to cut the cross member for the pan clearance. Took apart the front end to replace the king pins and brakes. Bringing all the odd parts to work for bead blasting and painting. Went to a great BBQ and did tons of yard work.
Found a really obscure Native American graveyard by accident while the wife and I were riding the Harley, we spent about an hour counting the Veterans there from WW1-WW2-Korea-and Nam. Wow, that was enlighting, there were 63 Vets there all with flags. Thanks for serving!

That looks good Woody. That's where I'm at on my '49 and it does not get easier at 71.

Bead blasted a bunch of small parts for painting, bought a set of NOS 3100 side emblems for the truck and went to the Connecticut Classic Chevy Memorial Day Car Show, the BelAir Camper was really cool. Take a look at the 3 1958 GMC's, the yellow one looked like a Cameo.

It's going to get a LOT easier for me when I'm 71 because by then the most strenuous thing I'll be doing on my truck is pushing in the clutch! grin

More power to you brother... show these kids how it's done thumbs_up

Amazing! My son home from A&M and my son in law home from Iraq helped me and we got a ton done. We finished most of the wiring, just waiting on fenders for lights, hanging the split looms and hooking up the senders. Under the dash we have power to radio and heater/air power lines waiting for those accessories. We also drilled and hooked up the door poppers for the interior lights. thumbs_up

Modern ‘science’: the wonder of a
pre-determined mind…

The ‘baseline belief’ of astronomy:
“Any day now, we’ll pick up a tiny,
coded signal from outer space. Then
we’ll know for certain that there is
intelligence out there, because coded
information does not arise by chance”

The ‘baseline belief’ of biology:
The precisely coded genetic information in
every cell would fill many books…
but we know for certain that no intelligence
could have created life.”

Looks like you've got your work cut out for yourself, but you're making great progress. Nice, professional looking work. Congrats!!

Your work inspires me to get to work installing my new Mar-K wooden bed replacment kit I bought 3 weeks ago. There's always something to do on these old trucks!!

I'm planing on the Mar-K bed when everything else is finished.
