Stopping point today. I worked on the hood some more. I'm going to have to cut out the previous repair to make it useable. I shot some epoxy and a coat of clear on it and threw it on the truck. Nothing has been adjusted so it fits even half close. The rear fender braces are installed and the running boards are back on. If winter arrives wednesday, I'm as ready as I can be. Smile

Thanks for all the comments, guys. I'll try to find some interesting parts to build in the next few weeks while tying up some loose ends.

I like those trucks and didn't really know it until we got one in the shop recently. They look great and your build is getting to the funner end so I hope you've enjoyed the project all along. Pretty sure you'll enjoy it next warm weather plenty. Need to read more of this thread some time, its interesting. Heres the red one we just did, haven't got a decent pic yet and I didn't touch the job but I think the truck sure is a looker.

Minor update. My brake is 48". To make a roll pan, I would need at least another 2 inches. I was out of sheet metal and the supplier 50 miles away was also out. I ordered a roll pan and this pic is the roughed in shot. I hope to have a painted pic by sunday night. Smile

I know you already have your roll pan but just a tip--I also only have a four foot brake but on my F100 and my Astro van I made the roll pans in 2 pieces with a license pocket in the center.
Your truck is looking great!!

Just wondering if you have ever got snow blind when painting all that white . I painted a dodge colt many years ago in a well lit booth and nearly hit the car with the gun at one point . It got so bright in there it was hard to judge distance . Just as I was using up the last of the paint I realised I had not painted the gas filler door that was hanging on the wall. JUST had enough to cover

CK, all the time. Smile The only time I can really see is outside in the sun. That really doesn't correspond with painting in my area.

CK, I did all that back in 1970. I don't plan on going back anytime soon. I have gravitated towards clean and simple. Smile
Bob, I don't have a great answer for the store bought parts except next summer they may get replaced with real parts. Laughing

Sounds OK ... Just try to avoid anything that says "Mustang" .. Idea You don't seem to have very much luck in that area .... Rolling Eyes Laughing

My first street rod , ( A '40 Ford 4-Door sedan), was painted the same "bright white" color ....It immediately was dubbed the "Kelvinator" .... Confused

Break time. I had some race car parts left over to use.
I spent way too much time on this. The plates were all machined to length in the mill. The round extensions on the tabs were 3/8" nuts that I turned down and bored. They're shot with spray can paint to avoid rust.
