New Pictures of my Ride

I finally loaded some updated pictures of my 1953 Ford f-100 project to my photo albulm. Click on the "Z-Money Pit Photo Albulm" link and let me know what you think.

So far I learned how to weld, repatch panels, paint, and colorsand/buff the finish all from information I have learned from this board. Thanks for eveyone's help.

The winter calls for installing the radiator, driveshaft, and wiring as well as saving for a new pro's pick bed and fenders.

Excellent detailing. The only fault I could find was that off-brand engine in there. LOL.

You are correct. It is a Ford 302 in a '53 Ford F-100.

The back end is getting a Pro's Pick bed with steel fenders and a rolled rear valance. I am moving the taillights from their stock location and integrating them into the rear valance.

The bed should be done in the early Spring. Once I get it done and mounted I will take a side profile picture for you guys.

Thanks for everyone's kind words. Its been a ton of work but I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

So far I have done everything myself (besides have the C4 Trans and engine rebuilt at a professional shop). I have built rods before but I always paid to have each step of the process done by others. On this project I decided to learn myself. With that said, and lots of research done using the "search" link on this message board, I have completed the frame, rust repair on the body (i.e. welding), the body work, paint, and assembly. I also ran new fuel and brake lines throughout. I am just getting started installing the wiring so be prepared for some more questions from me in the electrical forum.

Thanks again!
Chris
