Can anyone tell me what I have to look forward to. Will the car hood fit the top of the firewall? How bout the sides of the firewall? I already know the hoods are different at the grill. How bout the car fenders...do they contour the cowl of the cab at the bottom of the firewall? Would I need the running boards from the car or the truck? Oh yea and what do ya'll think about the looks of this combination? I'm sure its been done before. I already have left over parts from my coupe I'm building so I'm ahead of the game there. Thanks for any input ! 35hotrodtodd
I can't help answer your question, but you might want to pick up the January 08 issue of American Rodder. Nice article on what it takes to get nice body panel gaps on a 36 Ford truck.
