And yet another resounding positive response from me! These are my original grill bars too. I wish mine had a little LESS character. I have a '47 1/2 ton to do next, and if I don't find some good grill bars I will make them from wood. (they will look really nice painted cream...)

Very nice truck! Hopefully mine will be sporting the exact same color in a couple weeks.

Heading Home

Well, here it is. All body work is done and it is back home. Winter project will be the wiring and interior with a goal of being on the road in the spring.

Holy #&*%! That thing is beautiful. That is gonna be one really fun winter project. I like the barn find look, but maybe because that's easy and within my realm. But that is very, very cool and looks like a top notch paint job and restoration. High Five !!!

Looking good. There's nothing like a full restoration. I wish you well on the completion and hope you have many good times in it down the road.

I haven't seen someone performing a stock restoration of that quality in years. It is so nice to see, please keep the updates and pictures coming.

Instrument Panel Installed

This weekend I worked on wiring and installing the instrument panel. The clip that holds the wire on back of the amp gauge broke, so I guess I won't have a working amp gauge unless I can find a replacement

This weekend I got the starter button and front headlights in. It seems like everything I do on this truck takes at least 5 times longer than I think it will. I guess that's what I get for sticking with the original (rusty) parts.

fordgal,
What are you using for wiring your truck? Did you get a replacement harness somewhere or are you wiring from scratch? Keeping it 6v or converting to 12v? Also, did you send the speedo out for reconditioning? Sorry for the barrage of questions but I'm trying to plan ahead on my project.
