    I need to replace the cab corners and floor boards on my '56 F100. The rust isn't too bad...lots of small holes in the floor...slight sag in the corner bracket. Which do I do first...corners or floor boards? Should I remove the doors before starting to remove the old sheet metal? Do I leave the cab on the frame or can I take it off? Do I do one corner at a time starting with the worst? Do I level the frame and then level the cab before starting? I am looking for some guidance to get me started...I expec ... Read All ...

    For those who locate the M/C under the floor how do you seal around the brake pedal? I've searched for a rubber that fits over the arm but can't find one.

    With all the hotrods out there, and specifically 35-40 Fords with SBC engines, you owuld think there would be a fairly standard part number for the lower radiator house. Comes off the water pump and goes to the outlet in the lower right corner of the radiator. Can't think there is a lot of difference in radiators or motor heights, or distance back or forward. Just sayin.....

    After a long pause ... I'm finally back to work on my rides. It actually feels good to get back in the paint booth. Makes me feel like I am closing in on finishing this project, even if it is the second time around.

    Need some insite on door alignment. To bring a door into the correct alignment is it better to shim the body, shim the hinges, loosen the hinges, jack the door and tighten the hinges? Maybe a combination of all the above?
