Still working on that '53 f-100...doing the body work and engine work
now

My questions to this amazing store of knowledge"

Has anyone any experience in removing drip rails. I had been
considering this for several months and recently there was an article
on how to do it on a "mid-70's Ch*vy, but that ain't a mid-50's Ford.

Has anyone ever done this? What types of problems did you have ?
Any problem with warping of sheet metal ?
After a while did you develop any leaks, squeaks,or weakness in the
panels ?

Generally the question I'm asking is "Do I know what I'm about to
undertake ???"

It looks reasonably straight forward in the article, but hey, I saw a
transmission changeout in a late model Blazer on TV Saturday in about
20 minutes (including commercials !!! ).

Your comments please ???

First of all I would like to thank all of the people that gave me
information about the flathead 52 F-3 engine numbers a month or so ago!
One other question, I am restoring my 52 F-3 Marmon-Herrington 4x4 and
need to replace the windows and seals. Is it cheaper and eaiser to go to a
local winshield place or buy them thru the aftermarket catalogs? I would
appreciate any inputs.
