    Has anyone ever had to deal with a aggressive neighbor?

    I have no way of calling him...he is not listed..I WILL not drive onto his property...and honestly after last year and how he went after me...he should be on the defensive....he started all this with baseless accusations and threats.

    Has anyone ever had to deal with a aggressive neighbor?

    yep, pretty much confirmed last night he is trespassing and has placed items on my property. I will send him a letter politely asking him to review the situation and if he disagrees we can meet to discuss. If he chooses to not do so I will be forced to complete a survey and potentially include law enforcement. Sad thing is, this is ALL his fault. He pushed me over a year ago and continues to push. People like this only understand one thing: Overwhelming force.

    Has anyone ever had to deal with a aggressive neighbor?

    well I haven't been to the back corner of our lot in a few months, decided to go back yesterday since there was a big windstorm while I was in Germany, and found a downed tree. And the jackbag neighbor that accused me of all sorts of lies, seems to have took it on himself to drop a large chunk of tree across the old trail ON MY SIDE OF THE PROPERTY LINE, and is now using the old trail for his own use. I KNOW part of the old trail is on my side of the line. So I will go back again this afternoon and survey things more clearly and likely craft a letter to him stating the facts as I see them and he can either choose to correct, or I will be forced to call the sheriff as he was very clear about going on his land for any reason as I was for him on mine. I think I understand why he wanted to move the corner stake....

    ANSWERED New 1950 dodge Truck to me

    Basically make a spacer that allows the pin to rise up into a hole. put the c clamp over that all and clamp down...it will push the pin up...if that doesn't go high enough, a furniture bolt added to the bottom and push the pin up when higher.

    Modify a C clamp and a few pins and blocks.

    Also try to resize your photos down. I open mine in paint and 50% them and have had way less issues as of late.

    check my build thread in my sig line...might help ya a bit. And yes you should have some thin (1/8-1/4") spacers.

    Door lock removal

    taking the collar off might hurt ya a bit in the reinstall. I generally just knock off the weld nut that holds the bolt. I have a thread on putting a shaft collar on to retain the lock after you do so. Should be down below in my sig line.

    Correct Build Photo Guide

    your truck would have a mirror like I have on mine to be factory. Passenger side mirrors were an option rarely gotten so hard to find. Yes beds were black unless they paid about $5 to have them painted same color as the cab. The floor was rough cut wood painted color of the box (all painted at once). Check around here on the side and look at people's build threads to see what you can find. My 51 is as close to a factory resto as I could get (some even more pure than I would point out he 4 changes I made). My build thread is below in my signature line: "FEF". Beware SOME of Bunn's info...he did a great job on his books, and was a great buy, but we as a collective have found a few errors in the books. 99%+ solid info.

    1946 dodge oil pressure

    I use zrod oil
  14. Basically if is cab related, cab color. Anything undercarraige likely black. Splash shields back, battery box black
