Hello All
I'm a newbie to this group! Wanted to intro myself.
Been playng with old trucks and cars since I was a kid. Have had several Rod's and a few stockers over the years.
2 years ago I picked up a 41 Chevy 3/4 ton truck. Has the 216, 4 speed, flatbed. Been trying to get it roadworthy since I brought it home. Rewired the whole truck, added turn signals, tuned the engine, almost have the interior completed.
Still alot of work yet to get her on the road. Brakes, newer rearend, modern 4 speed, Ect.
Have a good 261 waiting to replace the 216.
This truck is fairly stock but with a few add ons. 30 gallon drum tank, 51 Nash taillights, Bullet front marker/turn lights, 30 Pontiac front bumper, 20 something Dodge rear bumper, Spot light and fog lights. Still wearing several different colors of barn paint, yet the truck is super solid and purrs good.

So just wanted to say hello and hope I can contribute some of my advice and ideas when needed! Great site and from what I can tell some good people on here!
Happy Holidays all!

Hi Steve's 41, Welcome to I moved your introduction post from "General Truck Talk" to "Stovebolt Dispatch". That is the forum for introductions and announcements.

Feel free to post general truck questions in General Truck Talk or questions of a specific area of interest in one of the more specific forums. (ie: Engine & Driveline, Electrical Bay, etc.) For off topic stuff, visit The Greasy Spoon.

Yea, welcome Steve. We are still "moving furniture" a bit around in the forums. Our Restoration area is all pretty good but the rest still isn't quite right. But we are trying to keep the resto area for all questions / answers about trucks.

But we have a friendly bunch who like to help with other stuff, too. Hence the Spoon, IT shortbus, Dispatch, etc.

So, glad to have you.
