For what its worth, i love it when guys use stuff they have collected over the years to aid in their vehicle builds. Jeff have you ever checked out the rattle can rebuild on "the hamb"? Sounds right up your alley!

Hey Jeff,
I'll post up a pic of our steering linkage - It would make the
great pyramid builders jealous. I think I may have your steering contortions beat but let's see. I've got the same 351W fitting into the shoebox '48-'52 trucks.

I was amazed out how expensive all the aftermarket steering stuff
was... I couldn't swallow the Ididit $700 column - I went with some knockoff & I've been paying for it since. I like your Bronco II solution - I looked around at used steering columns on Ebay - they wanted even more for the reconditioned old ones.

You are coming along great. What's your plan for F1 fenders. I went with fiberglass finally & they are nice & not too costly. I think I would have been a year trying to get all that bondo fixed up - just wasn't worth it - I think I paid around $200 per fender.

Your boy looks to have shot up past you - I was doing pretty well with my 20 year old son Zack - then he kept growing into college - got me by a good 4 inches now. Nice family - I'd faint if my wife came out to work on the truck.

Ben in Austin

To save the oil change sticker try using a hair dryer or heat gun and a scraper underneath the sticker. Take your time and be careful. You can also take a high-resolution digital image of the sticker, crop it on your computer and print it out. It'll look practically the same.

Hey Jeff what is the final height of your front end with the Jag? How many inches from bottom of frame rail to ground? Also what size tires are you going to be running? Also your motor mounts look great! Looks like some beef to me. George

It's sitting at 9" IIRC from the bottom right now, but not all the weight is on it yet. Tire size is 235/60/15, but I might use something different. And I hope the engine mounts are as strong as they look, because I like them!
More to come, just dealing with a motor issue right now...

I bounce around sometimes to see something different. So here is some rear fender repair. I don't have the best mig welder, but it does the job.

Looks great, and nice to have all that help too. I should have looked harder for u-joints, I paid the big bucks for mine.

Hey Jeff,
That's not floor "repair" that's floor perfection! I don't see any rust anywhere. Looking good over there! I like what you did with your fenders - I was lazy & bought fiberglass ones after encountering work by "The Bondo King" - (Previous owner).
