Subject: Paint Color Scheme for 49 F-1 Grill Area

Fellow truck lovers:

Just a quick question about the paint on the grill and
area surrounding the grill of a 49 F-1. I've read and
seen trucks with grill painted argent and the
surrounding area painted aluminum. I've got a truck
with white grill bars and the truck color (dark green)
in the surrounding area. I know that one of these is
correct and I am leaning toward the argent/aluminum

Is this a correct assumption?

I know of no gas tanks that will fit the rear of a 53 through 56 with no
frame modification at all. However I can tell you that the tank from an 85
Isuzu Trooper is a virtual bolt in if you move the rear crossmember rearward
about three to five inches. I also notched the left frame rail on the top
flange so the neck would have plenty of clearance. The beauty part of the
tank is that there are no straps to contend with and the tank bolts directly
to the lower frame flange. I installed one in my 56 my self with no outside
help. If I can do it, anybody can.

For you guys wondering, I plan on driving my 56 to Pigeon Forge this year.
Hopefully it will be safer.
