I am getting close with the hinge post. If accuracy and fit is the goal, I shoot for accuracy first then fit, as my logic dictates. On this, fit gets the upper hand and I'd call the accuracy fair. I minimized inaccuracies and went backwards in fit for a sec, had to sort of meet in the middle. The sheetmetal shell of the cab has nice comparative dimensions, one side vs the other.
I am just shuffling post, jamb, and rocker independently and closing in on final position. This stab is the best yet and I am ready to mess with the hinges' depth adjusting screws-
Model A dash progress- (upside-down in pic)
Ford this, Ford that, ford the other...

Started out with the tape measure and level today. Got in about five minutes and was pointed at something else. Changed a fender on an aluminum 2020 truck. Had to cut the durn thing off after all the bolts are out. And they have the cardboard carpet wheelwells now. Nifty. I didn't get hamburger hands too bad.

I had the right hinge post out to weld up. Tacked back now, at the previously told quarter inch higher location. So hinge tubes are straight across bottom of dash. Then I'll assure that I have matching side to side vertical distances from rocker top to top hinge tube and should be in business-

Looks OK. Have you checked space between box and cab yet?
Also, on the list, is fattening of the rear fenders on it?
|Yesterday 11:34 AM|
Mission accomplished. Moving on-
That'll do. Also this morning, spent some time listing the remaining metal work. Scary, theres a long way to go and a short time to get there.
|Yesterday 07:46 AM|
Yep, slice and dice. The future is here.

I can make an example of what the quality slider does. I notice a difference at less than 100% quality. Kinda suprised to find this stuff isn't common knowledge. I must always sound crazy with my pic size talk then.
Your pic sizes have been governer-ed like a pay to ride go kart, by the hosts.

Yep. Right again. You really know your pics.
I downloaded a pic I had posted and checked the properties of both. Although on the site is looks quite clear. Posting here is shrinking again, correct?

Theres a couple more things, suspicions, that I can share before it's back to the shack.
I suspect that in time, reattempts by me or revisions by blogger will lead me to that button I can't seem to find. Thats what she said.
I also suspect that in time, free Blogger as well will board the column width equalization train. When I started using it, the page ( Old car body repair pic dump No words, no ads. ) would show all images at full res. That put their menu in the middle of the first pic.
Nowadays, seemingly at random, pics change size both on the site and the edit page. I write that off to memory and browser flukes and the background ad battle I choose to have going. But things displayed properly now are more abbreviated. On the site and the edit page, default is now medium size. Fullsize is seen by clicking pic. Original res can be selected for each pic.
First part of a month, the site shows a list of blogs. Rest of the time, you go straight to my page. But if somewhere that month, and original res pic is present column width adjusts to suit and unless it is the top pic (and they do get jumbled chronologically on occasion) the menu isn't on top of it.
But I wouldn't put it past Google to pull the rug out from under the punch bowl and me. Thats the trend, remember Photobucket and my thousands of lost images and roached threads. That would leave me with email, pfft. To show a full image that is half the size of what my phone will do. Email may be throttled as well. Whoever didn't figure bloat would ever catch up with the internet was asleep in class.
If the "large" or "extra large" blogger image size remained and were satisfactory, I might could cope. Otherwise, my objectives would have to change. I only been posting pics here.
So ya know. Now, go home.

|idrivejunk||I'll keep using the old interface as long as it is around. Not knowing whether the "full" version of your site-hosted pic is the same as what you uploaded, I can't make any determinations. FWIW, when I edit a .jpg, a "quality" slider offers reduced clarity with smaller file size but same resolution as the original. I would venture that by those means, any site hosted image will suffer the same. Please correct me if you find that an image remains unaltered after upload.|

Damn....don't you love when they start using pics instead of words. Ikea instructions and other furniture are the same way. It drives me batty.
Looks like since you tapped the "new", they took away the "old". Just like updating phone. The new version is there to stay.
I went to the thread I posted, clicked the pic and it opened up in a new window. Then there are icons on this new window, (of course), one to make it bigger, but it goes larger than the screen. That's what will happen here.

Pardon this restroom reference but thats where my experience with Blogger's interface change began, on the pot one day this week after a day's work and two hour round trip. This thread started on the same haha note but not the same throne. Maybe its only those who can stand the smell who come here.
And come to think of it, that explains a lot about one of you.
Anyhow. My hosting site put up a notice of new interface coming. Over the following weeks, that message changed as the release was pushed back. One day, snap... new thing. Just like this site's impending software change will occur, kinda by suprise although you have been notified.
The other day, after all that, the blog notice said that after their new default interface release, the old would be available until a specific date in August. I kept you posted.
Right now, both are available. When I percieved the swap, I was crapping. Ha. Never let it be said I can't multitask. Wanting to make weekday-short work of it, I rolled with the new interface. Damn if I could find a way to upload pics but they say it's improved. Maybe it is set up for single left handed users because a lot of blogspot addresses have for many years been porn. Or so I hear.
I tapped the settings icon and every other one. No more words to tap on, only a bewildering array of puzzling icons as per global but stupid if you ask me, trend. Settings icon gives a menu with legacy interface on it and I taps hell outta that.
Today I observe that the August date for ending availability of the legacy interface has been removed, suggesting future availability of both with no timeframe. Just in case I am reading wrong, I taps me some "read more", and that I does. Ug-ug-gug, slipped into Popeye talk there for a sec.
Read more brings up a notice obviously written at the time of change announcement and states there will be no legacy interface.
Now you're up to speed. Explanations of simple things at times requires so much blah-blah-blah-IDJ that I don't bother. Not often though.

Here is an example of the detail difference I strive to maintain. If you see a bar indicating the images have been resized, tap or click that on each one. The reason they appear the same size before that click or tap is that this site has learned an important lesson and done this in order to avoid wild variations in column width (see difference in lines of text after tapping "view full image". That. ) which generates many complaints if allowed. Other sites approach this by yelling rules at everyone if some post stuff too big for the forum owner's monitor. Egad!
The top image is hosted here, the bottom is from blog. Now say I post that I've patched a fender or assembled a short block (I wish )...
You could see if I have left a bunch of holes in my weld and grinder-gouged it too deeply. You could stop me if I had honed cylinder walls with 100 grit. Educational, see? If I take too long on something, the reason may be in details you wouldn't see elsewhere and your opinion of my speed may not reflect reality accurately. I don't want that.
Some might argue that no viewer requires such a level of detail, to learn from. Perhaps not. Bet you thought I was talking about educating viewers but I know you know how to do this stuff. I figure I can learn more from you than the other way around. That explains why a quiet house troubles me, this reached a point where I learn nothing by posting. You just get to watch me wade through a random mix of old car and truck bodies and your interest varies based on the familiarity or preference for the vehicle or task which you have personally. Because I put it out there and you're kinda into bodywork. I get that.
Just making a point there. Somebody let me know if those pix look the same to you.
The site software change here could affect all of this. Or not. With that assumption, I stop and make no predictions for the post-change experience.
I'll post another "few words" explaining the experience I am having on Blogger. Filling in necessary detail, so you all understand. Please note that I have expressed no dis-satisfaction with that site.
