No. I was trying to figure out a way to make something for the jambs while I was looking in my accumulated junk when I found that. It's the drops from when I cut down some pallet racks to put inside a sea container for storage.

It is perfect almost. I just had to back cut it to get the curve to match the body and the door. Never throw anything away cause I might need it.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Gaining on it. I got the 2 up rights to match finally and got every thing squared up then I stuck the bottom on it. Just all tacked in good and solid in case I have to move any thing. I don't think I will but you never know.

I need to get the entry cut out and tacked in tomorrow then I just have to make one door out of these two and make it fit the hole. Sounds pretty easy if you say it real fast. Ha!!

Thanks for keeping an eye on me.

Now he's an auctioneer as well.

It's looking like you have that figured out.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Thanks all.
My plan is coming together. I don't have enough steel big enough so it's off to the big city this morning to get a sheet of steel plate.
And I hate going to town.

I had to go pick up some steel this morning and I about told them to keep it. The last 4x10 sheet of 14ga cold roll I bought cost me $98.
The sheet today was $132. If I hadn't needed it for another project I would have done something else.

I'm through whining now.

I did get some rigidity build back into the cab today. It was kinda weak with the side cut out of it.
I'm going to take a couple days off and give my aching back a break during this cold snap coming this week end.

Still lots to do next week.
POPS
