  5. Search Help

    Ok, this may get moved or copied to the other forums, but I know people get a little lost on the search function. MAYBE this will help clear things up. So, say I want to search "tail light". FIRST I have to decide if I want to search the MAIN forum or within a SUB-forum. If you want to search them ALL, then make sure to search while on the Forum main page (where all the forums are listed). This is a MAIN forum search: but I KNOW I want something in the truck forum so I will go to THAT forum and search there: enter my search term "tail light" and hit the looking glass to search: This search returns this: You can be even more detailed in your search if you go to the "+ More Search Options" and enter information there: I this case I remembered a post by "ggdad1951" that had the info in I needed so I select "Search by author" and enter that search term: that results in a more defined search like this: Of course you can do all sorts of advanced searches with the check boxes to help you find things and you can also do a Boolean search to help refine early on in the process. Boolean searches include the "+" or "-" to either include or exclude things you are looking for. In the example below in the red box I put the "+" in front of tail light and truck. This will return ONLY search that have BOTH terms, see the yellow boxes. It will also pop up the GREEN box to further help you. More about Boolean search can be found via Google or your favorite search engine. Hopefully this helps! IF you have a suggestion to make this tutorial better, PM me. Thanks!
  6. what, no starting issue to troubleshoot this year... I'm bummed! I'm hoping to make it again this year (one of these years Tim will give me the boot). Sadly the wife won't be able to tag along this year if I can go.
  7. New 1950 dodge Truck to me

    You need to review all the posts in the threads that are relevant to you, not just the one it puts you at, go up and down and explore. Lots of good info in there. The second thread has pics of my truck where it is bolted on the front side of the stack pocket near the bottom which was stock. The search function is a bit tricky but all I did was search the flathead forum for "tail light" and these were in the mix and had to weed thru all the results to find what I wanted. Take some time to practice searches and it will pay off. Start with something you know you will find, like this thread, and see if you can find it in a search. Using the advanced function can also help.

  10. Mystery project

    DING DING DING we have a winner! Wink, tell him what he's won.... I'm not molesting the hood (much) just two holes to bolt the wings down to the frame. Otherwise it's 4 mounting bolts on the center section. I need to fab up a fill piece for the cowl area and I've talked Ed (I hope) into painting it for me. He can use it for practice before he hits his next truck.
  11. Help !! truck shipping

    shippers are basically freight haulers. They want to go from point A to point B with little to no out of the way time. If someone isn't going to be near where the vehicle starts out...it's lost time and money. And/or the start and end locations don't fall on a regular "route". It was frustrating as heck to get a rolling truck delivered from the Bay area to Mpls....2 major cities, but just not a good "route".

  13. using you best

  14. New 1950 dodge Truck to me

    yep, I just don't drill the hole since I don't know what size hole you'll need. PM on the way. BTW you'll love having that mirror. SO much easier driving with one.
