I am in the process of installing a tach in my '55F100 and wanted to know if
anyone is aware of how the tachs are mounted in the "b ig" trucks - they
seem to have some sort of short adapter ring between the front bezel and
dash to form a tight fit to the curve in the dash on the LH side.

Anyone familiar with this?  I'd like the install to look as stock as

Thanks in advance-

I just found a 56 COE for sale in Alberta, around Calgary is my guess.
I haven't looked at the truck, but the asking price is $2000 cdn.  If
anyone wants the phone number e-mail me off list.

A few days a go there was some references to a campany called RustBusters.
What exactly does RustBusters do, ie do they us a normal cut and patch
technique any bodyshop can do or do they have a different method?

They spray melted wire into the rusted out area.  I had them use zinc so it
wouldn't rust again but they can use steel, copper, stainless and others.
It's an interesting process if they have one in your area it would be worth
watching.  It' s less expensive than cut and patch and looks better as well.
I'm well pleased with my doors and have fenders with them now.  They have a
list in Hemmings of where they're located.

Rustbusters doesn't use patch panels, they apply new metal and galvanizing
through a spray welding process.  I had it done to the front fenders of my
F2 and am happy with it.  I can't really explain the process, it's in the
realm of magic to me, but they have a web site,, that
will expain it for you and let you know how to contact them.

Sometime in the next 48 hours, Ford Truck Enthusiasts will
complete it's move to its new server.

After the move, the message boards and mailing lists on
the old server will be disabled and DNS records will be
updated to point to the new server.

The new server will be immediately active.  However, DNS
records take time to propagate across the Internet.  Your
hosting company may take 8-72 hours before it points to
the new server.  Until your host's DNS gets the changes,
you will not be able to send email to our lists nor will
you be able to use the message boards.  You will, however,
continue to receive list mail correctly.

Your patience in this matter is appreciated.
