When I made plans to build my 1956 Ford F-100 I immediately knew that I wanted to have it roll on a combination of 18-inch front wheels and 20-inch billet wheels for the rear. I wasn’t targeting the pro-street look, but wanted a minimum of a 20 x 10 inch rim for the rear, which a couple of buddies told me was impossible to do on an F-100. (Read More)

Definitely cool. Too bad I'm one of the budget conscious (poor) truck builders here

Original Paint

Can you help me find a thread somewhere that helps me with the orginal paint schemes for detail parts? I have done the research to understand the standard exterior colors, the yellow for the engine on my 56, etc. Now I am down into the finer details, for example: 1) are the inner fenders black or body colors, 2) what color should all of the clutch and brake linkages be painted, 3) what color should brakelines be painted or not at all, what about all of the clips for different things - black or body color, etc.

I just can't find these details enywhere.

Thanks for all of your help. Great site!

Emergency brake (park brake) system - F2

While trying to piece my ebrake system back together (yes, I forgot to take pictures before disassembly) I used pictures from many different posts from many of you posted over quite a few years to get the answers that I needed for the entire system. My thanks to all of you who have posted. I couldn't have done this without you.

This post is an attempt to put it all together into one post. I hope that it helps not only those of you restoring F2s but F1s, F3s, etc. as I believe that most use variations of this same basic design.

Many of these parts are very hard to find.
Ford cars 1939-1948 use the same parts under a different number.

countersink trick - sheet metal

So I bought an altmans easy latch kit for my 56'. They have done a good job with the latch for sure. But its not clean enough for MY liking.

I didn't want to cap my door with another piece of sheet metal, that they supply, to hold the latch in place.

I plan on filling the factory holes and cutting my own holes etc in it afterwords.

I wanted to counter sink the bolts in my door like they came with the easy latch/plate. Tried searching for a punch or die locally, but no luck.

So I made one. Cost me nothing to make really. I have attached a picture. It's just a countersunk bolt with a big nut, a washer, and a nut that threads onto the bolt. The nut, washer, and big nut are welded together to keep the bolt centered in the hole when tightened.

Took a couple trial runs before I got an even punch, but it works great!

There was an Articles here on F.T.E. that showed how to Upgrade ones brakes to a Mid-Late '60s Mustang Dual Master Brake Cylinder & w/ the change that happened at the F.T.E. site I can no longer find it. Also, I saved it to my Gallery using a Screen Shot & my Gallery no longer exists. Any way to retrieve thatas well would be greatly appreciated.
There was also an Article about doing the Up Grade using an Early '70s F-150 Master Brake Cylinder as well, which I also can no longer find.
These are all for my '58 Mercury M-100 truck.
Please I could really use someones help here in locating these articles, thank'ee.

So sorry to hear that, ALS is such a terrible and non curable condition. One of my best friends, a Doctor (a pediatrician), was just diagnosed with ALS. He is having to quit his practice and prepare for the worst. A very sad situation for anyone, and for the loved ones around them. Bless you and your wife.

Col Flashman, I too wish to express my sincerest sympathy to you and your wife. We believe that our lives are in God's hands and we often times take His blessings and positive outcomes for granted, but because of evil in our fallen world, bad things can and do happen to good people. In life's darkest moments, we can, however, take comfort in knowing that God is ultimately in control. Our life here in this world is always very brief and may at times be filled with great pain and sorrow. In every trying circumstance, we can be absolutely certain that because of God's grace, heaven is our real home and the trials of our temporal lives will be completely forgotten. May God grant you peace and strength as you face these difficult days.
