Fired up the spray gun, and sanded this fender and finished the roof..I know i will have to fill the pits with glazing putty, which will require resanding all of this, but with no garage, i have no choice.. It rains every other day here.


I dint make it to the Fiddle fest, but the truck was registered, so i will call that a qualified win..


Also those wheels for the 47 are shot.. rusted on the inside

Welded on a rear bumper, so i can have a trailer hitch, i will bolt it later. I think the bumper is from a Toyota.

Welded an angle piece on the bottom of this ex-door to tie that to the 1 x 4 that holds the body together and slapped some bondo on it. Also welded some 1 " tubing to the wheel well on this side so i can shape that.

And welded a piece of strap between the floor and the body sill on the drivers side to cover at least one gaping hole.

08-11-2006 03:40 PM And then it rained
Cut a piece of 1/4 " Plexi for the little window, and stuck it in temporarily. Managed to get the horn and blinkers to work on the Opel, test drove the Doodle-bug. It works a little better.

Then went to Junior's Junkyard, and bought a shoulder harness and seat belt for the Chevy, and found a cheap pair of needle nose pliers and 16 cents cash money. Junior let me steal a floor mat for the doodle bug too.

Then got plugs for the the Doodle-bug and generic plug wires for the Opel, and bottle of MIG gas..

And somehow today, the Chevy stopped looking like a pile of parts and started looking like a vehicle.

Treated myself to a chrome gravel strainer, and mounted the antenna. The little corner piece is the only decent piece of the body.. No dents, no rust, just old.

Picture # 1, Framework for the floor.

Picture # 2, The floor.

Picture # 3, the left rear fender. I welded on a piece of 1" tubing and bondoed him...It might work for a while...


Whew... Only 87 degrees today, so got the floor in finally... Now i can drive it, if it runs.

Next, finish welding the rusted out places in the front part of the cab, trouble shoot the electrics, and do the necessary parts of the body work... In a few days.... I need to make some money and have the '47 Ford towed here..
