Hey everyone. My name is Nick, 19 yrs old. Graduated from Sussex County Tech for auto/diesel technology. I currently reside in Vernon, north Jersey. My current project is a 1965 F100 Flareside i acquired from my neighbor 3 years ago. The truck originally came from South Carolina, my neighbor somehow managed to drive the truck all the way back to Jersey, using plates from his trailer and sitting on a 5 gallon bucket haha. Overall condition wasnt too bad at first, but like always, as work progressed opened a can of worms. Turned a little resto into a frame off restoration. I also have a 1946 Willys CJ2a Jeep my dad and me restored, its nearly done minus the finish paintjob. My daily driver is a Silverado, please dont hurt me, LOL. Well here are a couple pics.
Thanks for the comments. As im sure you can tell, its dang cold out, so progress has been minimal, as i dont have a garage big enough to fit the truck. I have been slowly working on prepping interior pieces for paint when warmer weather rolls in. I finished up the gauge cluster, cleaned up the column, pulled apart the heater box, and cleaned up the brake pedal assembly. Everything is down to bare metal and ready for paint now. On the warmer days i try to get outside to make progress on the fenders. The rear fenders are pretty much done as far as welding in patches and straightening metal. Front fenders need a little patching. Doors are in pretty good condition, just some dents. Hood had a dent right in the middle, will take a little work to get out and looking right. Other than that, just need to collect all the small parts to start piecing it back together, and picking up a trans/motor combo.
John, where in vernon are you? Im in Highland Lakes, right off of Highland Lakes road (638)
