  1. Well, I didn't get to hook up with anyone from the forum, but I ran across this at a car show 20 miles from the hotel today. Really nice guy, not on the forum, was a '36 and it was clean.
  2. I'm outside KC for the weekend doing training at work, and have an open weekend if anyone needs some extra hands or wants to sit around and shoot the breeze about these old trucks and cars. I know it's short notice, just let me know. Thanks Eric
  3. That's a good find, especially from upper Michigan. Just spent a week in Hillman at the family cabin in late June.
  4. After 2 weeks vacation, I come back and catch up on all the progress. Interior looks great, along with all the little touches here and there. Happy Birthday too.
  5. I also looked at the website and found a few options that I thought would work too. One I liked best from the Spaenaur catalog was PN# 096-001 and 096-002 from the DB Series.
  6. Radar, thanks for the input on a better understanding of the lock operation. Nifty, I've read about others finding door latches from an Aussie drivers door to put locks on the driver side too. My question now is, are there replacement door locks/keys available or am I looking at the locksmith to cut a key to my existing door lock on the pasg side?
  7. Was able to pull the dog house with the removal of 6 major bolts and 2 minor ones. 2 bolts inside the door jambs going into front fenders, 2 bolts under the radiator support going through frame cross member for the major bolts. Also had 2 minor bolts from inner fender to tabs on the frame. Then it was lift and walk forward, it does help to have the front wheels off.
  8. I'll be keeping all the suggestions in mind, when I pull the body back out from temporary storage. Working on frame and driveline stuff first, then the body work will begin.
  9. Perfect, I thought that was a fabricated tool, I didn't even think of a bearing splitter.
  10. Steering wheel bolt only. Nothing else.
  11. Is it possible to borrow this bad boy?? PM me. Thanks.
  12. Thanks for all the input, it was a 2x4 that I drilled a 1 1/2" hole in, then ripped down the center. We screwed them together and rented a 7 ton 3 jaw puller that kept slipping off the wood, even when tried as a 2 point puller. Went the redneck way in effort to get it off. Finally hit a wall and said screw it, till I find a suitable puller. We pushed the whole column up into the cab, strapped it up, and pulled the body yesterday afternoon. Just got back from a day of fishing with the family. Frame is back on jack stands in the garage.
