The Green Hornet is Home!!

Yaaahooo!! The 36 PU is home from the upholstery shop!!! I am missing two rear speaker covers and must install the front speakers tomorrow, then the interior is done. I have a date with the for real pen stripper Tuesday and all will be done but the tuning of the EFI system. I will have about 500 miles on it by then and then I can start the tuning process.(have to put 500 miles on the new rear end before tickling the floor with the accelerator.) New pics will follow when pen stripping is done!!

You need to do the ceremonial series of burnouts in front of the house. Best place to break it is where you can fix it! Plus, it gives new meaning to "Daddys home!"

I'm interested in seeing how you did your interior. Did you relocate your tank? What kind of seats did you use? Etc. etc. Could you post some pics of the interior. I have a 1946 GMC pickup and was interested in some ideas. You are light years ahead of me as mine is still basically stock, as in kinda rough. But it does run and drive, albeit without brakes. I love the body style of these trucks the best. Art Deco rules. USA1

USA1, I'll post some interior pics as well. It is very plain and simple, the way I like things. This is a 36 Ford PU so there was no gas tank to get out of the cab. It is at the back, just inside the frame and 15 inches from the rear bumper; right where Ford put them for at least 16 years and I never heard of an explosive rear end collision in about 60 years. Your 46 Jimmy cab will not be much larger than mine but you will have a bit more room behind the seat. Your cab lends itself to covering a piece of plywood and attaching to the present seat riser, then you can fasten whatever seat you want to it (as long as it is narrow enough. I have 66 Mustang buckets for two reasons: they fit the truck and the relative straight back fits my aching back!!
