  1. Sorry to hear that Paul, but glad you plan on taking care of yourself. If you want to sell your projects please post them in the Classifieds section or I will have to hide/delete your thread.
  2. Young Ed and I could make Cottage Grove MINNESOTA in about 30 mins....Cottage Grove WisconSIN.....likley a few more hours (about 4). But I'm always up for a good road trip!
  3. nice article....altho I'd never pull my TROTTLE out to start the truck... LOL
  4. Honestly, if Merle would be willing to swing by the shop and get eyes on it, might not be a bad idea.....too much up in the air IMO. Gotta keep remote workers honest somehow.
  5. Bear in mind that you'd want to fasten the rubber with more than adhesive (I used pop rivets with a larger head since I could not set split rivets with out a power tool) and that the rubber should go up to the last rivet hole (fully cover the interface between the fender and cowl). Roberts has the "most" correct version of the filler out there. Direct copy of FEF's original filler. maybe different factories did it different or it differed over time....but I'd use all the holes.
  6. movie star? will be signing "truck"graphs after the screening....just put your paper down there and he will drive over it.
  7. well my method of using a tree won't help.... Can you find a RELATIVELY immovable object and afix the truck to that and pull the trailer out from underneath.
  8. Nothing has changed as far as I know. Doing them yourself, paying for repair, or finding a better set on the interwebs is about it.
  9. Fenders are all the same for B series trucks....now doors, cabs, hoods, grills and REAR fenders...different story.
  10. tis in the TRUCK section? so?!?!??!
  11. To this point you should assure the hood is set up right for the B1/B2 front clip and not a B3/B4 hood.
  12. Sounds like a repowered truck....which trans? Value depends on what it is!
  13. if you can, go look at it...sounds like a pretty good deal and panels are hard to find. Look for the hidden rust...panels have some spots that are unique (rear fenders, rear doors, drip rail, etc.) compared to the pickups. As stated wiring sounds ok, its looking at the mods that have been done that you mentioned (brake conversion and anything else). Get under it, check it over, take it for a spin. He's a mutt with all the parts from different vehicles put on so hopefully they are all solid bits! Does seem like the seat bases have some mods as well. And you can always get rid
