Finished off the bottom of the rad shell, got it covered in total solids just a bit more touch up and it should be ready for paint.

Pulled the body off the chassis for the final body work, I don't know how many times I've done this, seems way too many. Made a stand out of some steel I had kicking around so you can rotate it easily with a hydraulic jack. Lifted it a total of 3 feet off the ground so you don't have to lean over as much, might as well save the back when you can.

Body is moving along quickly. We have the top part of the cowl finished, the back upper cab corners and 90 percent of the roof done. Still trying hard to get ready for paint for the end of this month.

Wesley put the first coat of paint (although it was high solids primer) on the car converted truck. Its finally starting to look like something. I'm going to leave some of the old welds unfinished on the roof line just so you can see the neat idea the original hotrodder did when he converted this from a car to a truck sometime during WW2 when these were being converted to trucks to get extra gas ration coupons.

Working on the body, Wes drilled holes in the visor, I worked on the grille shell. I sunk 7/8" tube behind the holes in the grille to firm it up a bit and give it a little depth. We started a first coat of bondo on the roof lines too.
