  1. I think the steering wheel is from a '46-'48 Chrysler. Nice truck!
  2. OK, so here's a cunning mod for you...

    I'm impressed. Very creative and looks NOS.
  3. Just picked up my 49 dually

    Just curious. Are all the projects you have ones that you eventually plan on restoring. Some people just like to collect old cars and trucks and restore some of them and have the rest for viewing pleasure/landscape art. Nothing wrong with any of it but I was just wondering about your own addiction.
  4. My new car accessories, I love it!

    You guys are just Kittyphobes.
  5. My new car accessories, I love it!

    C'mon, it's only a dog. Now if it was a cat I might feel sorry for it.
  6. TImes have changed.

    I'm surprised it ever flew! I do note that it is the passenger pouring the beer, hopefully for himself, but the driver does look expectant also.
  7. My first classic

    Looks GREAT!!
  8. Empi Dune Buggies

    Paul, hope you don't have to stop suddenly with that set-up as what you are hauling is at your head height. Hope everything works out but safety first! How do you plan on loading the buggy onto the wooden support? If it has engine and tranny it could be more than two people can lift.
  9. Newtons law

    This is what I try to do when working on stubborn nuts and bolts. Work back and forth and lube(PB Blaster for me) the parts and slowly work the nut loose. If it reaches a point where I figure I am going to damage or break something, I then apply heat and continue with the process. Tapping on the parts also helps to loosen the rust holding the parts together. Lots of patience is the key. Works nearly all the time.
  10. Cylinder Corrosion

    I like the fact you wanted to keep the original engine. I have three old Mopars and two have the original engine and the third has a replacement flathead. Lots of vehicles had the original engine changed out at some point when the old one was worn out. You were certainly willing to put your money down to get what you wanted. Please update as work progresses.
  11. PT125 Rebuild

    Interesting thread. Please update regularly. I agree you are working in a very tight space but at some point you will have to pull it out. Tough to open a door or pull a rear axle.
  12. Whose Truck Got A Workout?

    sph, you are using your truck for what it was built for. Being pretty original with lots of patina, you don't have to worry about paint being scratched. I imagine you are having fun with it also. Thanks for sharing the pics!
  13. Molly Time!

    It's good when a plan comes together. Hope the valves co-operate for you. Sounds like you are on the right track with them. It'll be sweet when you fire the engine for the first time.
  14. Has anyone ever had to deal with a aggressive neighbor?

    Sounds like you have a common-sense Sheriff........the best kind.
  15. Phoenix on the road conversations

    Nice pics. Thanks for sharing.
