Some coach lights like this might work well. You could make some with a little brass and solder.

Yea !!! that would be cool too.. I thought of doing some like that too...

I had a few offer's lately for the c-cab, like she sit's..
I really don't want to sell it and would like to be the one to finish it... but the money sure would help out...

One of my friends offered me $8,000 like she sit's... And a few others asked what I needed to get for it.... Hard to decide on this one..

Understandable. Money in the pocket is cool too. I'm sure you'll make the right decision for you. Would be nice to see it finished but money would sure help your other projects. What ever you decide, its understandable either way.

TC... I'm not going down that easy !!!!! Here's some shot's of what's going on now... I want to get everything welded up on this frame.. Made a couple of changes and finishing up everything.. Will be burning some more AMP'S tomorrow... I want to have this frame done and in Epoxy primer by the weekend... If I have enough primer left since my son clean me out... I will have to save up again to give my good friend Mr.Barry a call... I might have to wait until after these Holidays Or put it on my wish list for Santa...

So Selling it is out the picture... I came to far to give up now... That would be the easy way out... CAN'T DO IT !!!

I will keep pushing at it one way or another..

Glad to hear your going to keep on with the C-Cab. I really need to see you finish this!

Your giving me a boot in the butt also. I went out and bought a blasting cabinet and a small hydraulic press for the shop. I have the donor car in the shop have the grill and the front off. Ready to pull the trans and the engine next week. I hope to have it stripped by Jan. It is nice to have a gas furnace in the shop as the temps hit 5 degrees F last night after the snow storm.

The BBC looks cool with the zoomies on it. I'll keep watching the thread.

When someone tell's you that you can't build a frame without a jig... Here's one that was built with no jig...
