Cut the running boards off, so i can get under there with a cutting wheel and get the body loose. Heck of a mess. I guess burying a truck in pine mulch for forty years is not the optimum way of loosening bolts..
Got the head lights in, i'll have to mess with them again, once i get them working.
And last picture, some of the chrome parts i will try to get on tomorrow.. The shop was pretty damp after the big deluge yesterday, so i goofed off today. Got rid of the old windows for the '66, and got another tank of O2.
There is a Concours tomorrow in town, but i think i wont get to drive the Frankentruck there this year.. So sad.
Got the front brakes taken off the '47, boy, those are sure simply constructed. No sweat once i beat them off with a hammer.. Broke one drum, TBSS. I have a feeling the back ones wont be so easy.
Took the horn off, and it actually works, so that will go on the Frankentruck.
Also went over to Jason's and got a steering wheel off one of his Kurbmasters. i like the old ones better, and they are a little bigger, for more leverage when parking.
Made a deal to get some old fashioned bits and pieces from that truck for the roadster, as well as radiator, alternator, gages, and maybe these nice seats.
He put a lot of money into getting it running, and then the motor turned out to be bogus, so he is planning to cut the aluminum body off it for salvage.. It's from the '50's, so there is lots of real old fashioned stuff on it..
Also brought back two wheels from the donor '68 for the '47, and Yay, put its gas cap on the Falcon... Restoration, Ho!
