  2. The rain keeps coming....that's a good thing......but its a chore working through the wet stuff, I keep getting wet. Can't be anything worse than wet weather when it comes to working. I'll take the heat any day....lol Snow is a great excuse not to work....but rain is one of those dang inbe 'tweener kinda deals.....don't wanna be a sissy! Gonna be hard to stay on top of things but at least we'll be better off in the long hall.....put that 4 year drought behind us. Somebody post a BBQ pic if you will please, my computer is acting up and I can't seem to find time to fix it. ITS LESS THAN 2 MONTHS AWAY!!! Give a SHOUT OUT so we know your coming over!!

    1955 First vs Second Series Windows?

    Yes...there are a few other panels/pieces that made it into the C series for a time.... The connecting panel below the tailgate changed in 1952 or 53 I believe, and made it into the 1954. Said piece was long and rectangular while the change gave it an indent(?) or rise, towards the bed floor. But its my experience that its the bed that was carried out and not the cab/front end, at all. 48D
  5. Sounds good to me JB. I'll dig up my build threads and do the same. 48D

    1955 First vs Second Series Windows?

    Very few parts exchange between 1953 (B series) and 1954(C series) trucks. The rear fender of the 53 truck is the same ...it ran from 1953-1983 But in general.....keep 1953 separate from 1954. I often talk with parts suppliers about the differences with early series Dodge trucks.... With so many Chevy and Ford buyers/builders, us mopar guys get a quick glance at best from the majority of large suppliers out there. Any good glass shop can cut automotive flat glass for you, just take them the old beat up one. 48D

    Another 230 build thread

    Been enjoying the build Tom. Remember you have a friend across the valley if you break something else and need a tough to find part. At this point in our friendship, it ain't nothing but "shipping" cost and a cold soda. lol 48D

    ID This Valve

    That sounds reasonable.....Id be interested to know if its a "farmer cut" or factory cut. The fact that the valve has been removed and eventually disguarded might suggest that there was an attempt to fix it, or maybe fixed one to many times...lol. 48D

    ID This Valve

    Looks like its a Ford....could be Chevy...maybe a Dodge....or even a Desoto.....or Plymouth.....moped? That slot on the face has me stumped....must have be stuck? Someone cut the surface to work it free? hmmmm...... 48D

    1938 Dodge 1/2 Ton

    There are still a few yards out there with 36-38 truck parts/panels/completes.....Dodge Vintage City in Sonora, California being one of them. The idea of having someone else restore the vehicle in itself will "cost more" no matter what year vehicle we're talking about. Having a matching 1938 truck for your 1938 Sedan sounds reasonable, but really its a question one has to answer for himself. I say find a 1938 that is as close to completion you can afford, and go from there. Because honestly, hard work that's been done, that is just short of being a finished product.....usually turns out to be a bargain. Keep looking, that's half the fun. 48D
  11. Maybe we should have a Barracuda only category....or something. I think we have to data to support the need. 48D

    Sleepless nights

    Yeah.....that's me. I work nights....when I hit the hay at 9:00am I have a difficult time getting past that urge to stay up and get a few more things done....cuz well....the sun is out and its a nice day. Its what it is..... 48D

    title issues

    I have several parts trucks that have parts from so many different years...its a chore to figure out what was really the "base" year of said truck. My favorite I hauled in? It had a 53 bed and fenders, a 48/49 frame, a 50 cab and a 53 hood....I guess I should mention it also had late 70's era Camaro seats...lol. 48D

  15. Well, the rain is here, and its falling on the weekends instead of the weekdays..... So I'm giving up a certain amount of sleep to get things ready around here. I work nights, which means I normally sleep during the day....been doing that for 20+ years now. The drought has been rough on my plant life here, and it doesn't help I'm not a green thumb kinda guy. But the wet weather might mean I have a renewed chance to replant and try again...lol. I'm also building a new corral in the "parking lot" area that most have become used to, so I'll need to point that out to the regulars least they become roped and branded by mistake....:D Any locals that have a free day, please give me shout and I'll take you up on a visit. ITS 2 MONTHS AWAY!!!!! WHOHOOO!! Tim aka 48Dodger
