here is the only rat rod at the show.. 47 Ford Cab, chopped and 8 inches cut off the bottom, very neat hand made frame, 86 Mustang Four, hand made seats, and so on.. Love the "Appalachian" bed cover.. Roof tin, in case you can't tell.
Set the cab back down to see how it looked with the channel, and if i fit inside. OK so far.
Then we welded some strap steel to form the bottoms of the rear cab corners, and proceeded from there. The right one was enough there to fiberglass, but the left one was missing in action. I screwed the piece we were making in place before final fit, because it started to rain.
