In 54 the vin was screwed on, if you have the correct numbers of the
truck (verify that they match the frame) Mid-fifty's will make a new
one for you $75.00. 1-800-252-1956

Conor,

If you see a picture you'd like for wallpaper, just right click on the
picture, you will see a small pulldown menu and left click on 'set as
wallpaper'.

Gang,

I have found a source for old radios if any of you are interested. I
found this site quite by accident one afternoon while I was surfing for
something else.

Hope it helps someone.

I was also wondering if anyone knew of a way to download any pics for the
wallpaper behind my windows 95. I found some killer surfing ones that I'm
enjoying but I'd love to open up and see a beautiful truck just to inspire me!
Thanks in advance
Conor

I used a Mustang II IFS kit from Fatman Fabrications on my 54. Rides great,
the kit also allowed for the installation of rack and pinion steering with
the crossmember, I would highly recommend it. I just used the basic kit and
got all the suspension parts out of the junkyard, and put new v8 springs in.

Hi, new to the list, etc.
I've got a '53 F-100 too. I kept the beam axle and installed monoleaf
springs and new hardware all around. The change (good-bye kidney-killer)
was impressive. I'd recommend it as an alternative to a full ifs
installation. The cost runs about $400 per axle, as I recall.
