Just checking in. Karl, you can see what is up with the truck at www.excelerators.net/36_Ford/ I have been too busy wthe the band business these days to work much on the truck. I might have some extra running boards, but I am shy on rear fenders and need to locate or build (somehow) a driver side rear fender myself. The passenger rear is in pretty rough shape and will take some work to ressurect, but I'll do something. Hope all is well with everyone. Take care, WES

Aggravation? No, it's supposed to be fun right?
Nah, I'll need the dollies and hammers a lot on this project before I'm done, and the fenders will just take a lot of time and patience.
And I really do plan on having an all steel body when I'm done, no matter what it takes.

Re price of hammers.
Price of hammers would have paid for Wescott rear fenders. and no agrivation. I was determined to have an all steal body till reality set in. Have fun but keep a Wescott catelogue handy. Good luck

Well, I scored a really nice set of running boards off of evilbay, an NOS 35 grille, and so far, 3 fubarred rear fenders
Repairing the rear fenders will probably be the death of me, but the wife did buy me the $350.00 set of Martin body hammers and dollies for Christmas!
I'll tell you what, if I had the resources, I'd start stamping out rear fenders for the 35-37 ford pickups, seems that they're scarcer than hens teeth, and worth more than their weight in gold!
Wes, any pics of your 36? I'd love to see them.

good luck on metal ones.
after years of seaching for metal rears I gave up and bought the fibre set front to back from Wescott. A lot less agrivation.

36 Ford Grill Shell
I did find a good 36 grill shell for the project. I could not figure out how to remove this post so I thought I'd just advise that I found one. Thanks.....WES

36 Ford Pickup truck radiator/grill shell assembly
Does anyone know if there is a database of parts for sale/swap here at Hotrodders.com? I am really tickled to find this resource as "Trees" with his 36 Ford pick-up restoration has been a real help to me. This is actually my 4th resto, but first ground-up redo of a rust bucket. It is a lot of fun. I am lacking a radiator, grill shell assembly for a 36 Ford pickup. I have a 37 Ford PU grill shell and a set of hood sides that I would like to work a trade for, but I can't find a good database of old car parts online. The grill shells up at e-bay are pure trash and these guys are getting more than what I paid for my whole truck. These units are so bad that I don't htink I could properly fix any of what I've seen up there so far. I am considering making a mold from my 77 resto of a 36's grill shell and making the grill out of some shelving material that has a similar pattern to a stock 36 PU grill, but finding something already done would be much easier. Thanks for any help you guys might have on this topic....WES
PS. - I am thinking about starting a site where if I can place an online version of an Access database, we might be able to develop something where a nominal subscription (of like $12 per year) might cover my cost to host the website and do what Hemmings has not been able to do, namely, put an organized list of parts and traders together for NOS parts. There would be no cost to place a listing, link your online photos, then you indicate when the item moves so it is withdrawn when you are done, etc. If there is something like this up here, I am not interested in "re-inventing the wheel," so to speak. ....What do y'all think?
