I used Armaflex (which was suggested to me by someone on this site) and it is
great- put 1/2" and 3/4" sheets in the entire cab - roof, floor, lower door
panels, kick panels, behind gas tank, etc. ('52 F1) - it is great!!! Can get
it from any air conditioning or refrigeration supply house - comes in 3' x 4'
sheets - cuts easily with GOOD scissors and can be glued in place with high
temp latex spray adhesive (3M or similar). Try it and I think you'll be well
satisified. Bruno

I saw a pair of NOS 48 to 50 front fenders advertised in the last issue of
Hemmings for $2500 (ouch!).....these babies are hard to find. I talked to
someone at Dennis Carpenter and asked why no one was reproducing these, he
told me the tooling would be very expensive and they would have to charge
$1500 a piece(ouch! again). Maybe you should find one in decent shape and
either repair it yourself or have it professionally done. (That's what I'm
doing). Or then again you could check hemmings and pay for the NOS ones.
Your call.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - truck shows

Does anyone know of any up coming truck shows in the Southeast area that
will have some parts vendors. I really hate to wait until Pigeon Forge
in May to buy a lot of the parts that I need. I am just trying to save
on the shipping charges for bed sides, tailgate, running boards and A/C
unit.

Thanks, Charlie

Ouch is right.... can you say fiberglass? For that kind of money I sure
could.

The news section of the web site now contains Ford press

several articles plus photos. Everything you always
wanted to know about Excursions but were afraid to ask!

I have a 51 f1 with a flathead. I have a 9"rearend with 3:00 gears in it and
a C4 tranny. Two 94s, hi comp heads and a 3/4 cam and 75 or 80 on the hiway
is no problem . I highly recomend this combo for a flathead. Getting to these
speeds is pretty quick .
