The fix anything guy

Hello Hot Rodders, I just took early retirement and started a new project.
A 1955 F100, California truck just out of 30 year storage. Not much rust but metal fatigue has cowl and fender bottoms cracked. Running boards shot, box shot, tailgate good, hood cracks a little rust, cab driver side corner old repair on it and back door frame.
It was together and painted in 1980 ( plates). The front was hit, then completely torn down to the last nut and bolt. Whats left looks like leftover parts from another build. So what I have is a nice pile of leftovers!
I have the body on a roll around dolly. The frame is in process of installation of Mustang II front end and T.C.I. 4 link in the rear. The frame I leveled, straitened, welded up cracks and holes, wire brushed, rust converted and removed all components to bare frame. Ready for paint after initially installing all suspension components and removing them.
So that's where I'm at after a full summer of wrenching.

Thanks for the welcome guys. The name is what my wife has called me for 40 years...........So I get a lot of requests from friends and family! I have been building cars since I was 14 years old. AHHH my first 57 chevy...
As for fixing teen agers GOOD LUCK! My first two I fought tooth and nail with. My third, I guess I learned something or finally listened to THE GREAT KNOW IT wife. That daughter was great but had her moments too.
Now my two granddaughters who I take care of all weekdays are starting to show the early signs of the dreaded teen ager....Oh this to shall pass. When they get into their twenties they appreciate you again.
So if you need anything fixed............come to Mukwonago, Wisconsin and pay me a visit. A case of MGD usually covers labor costs! Later Guys
