    Hey Chuck, got a question. I was looking at an older R&C magazine and saw a reference to Joe Eddy and his F100's. I had forgotten about his trucks [and hot rods] and wondered if he is still around CA. Do you know? Would you answer by emailing me? Had a computer problem and lost all my outlook info. Joe

    I cannot recall if I have used filler on top of the KBS Rust Seal or not. If I had an occasion to fill some pitting I would not hesitate to fill over the KBS...I would use a scotchbrite pad to scuff up the KBS and give it some tooth, then prime and then add the filler. The reason that I would prime would be to ensure that when I sanded the filler that I did not inadvertently cut through the KBS...once I go to the primer I would stop sanding. Hope this helps.

    I am not sure how much info you got from the 2008 thread, I have searched for it but it seems that the FTE system won't go back past April 2014. What I do have is the measurements for the CV IFS setup in some detail. I do not have this diagram on a URL so I cannot post it here. Send me an email at and I will forward what I have.

    Hi Charlie -
    New to FTE - referred by Curt Loftis on one of the FB f100 pages. I have a '53 F100 that I am stripping down for a Mk8 Rear IRS (which I have already sourced), and a new front IRS as well. Was planning on a CV '03 or later front IRS 'cause I understand they are a "good" swap. The guy on FB said you are a wealth of knowledge on the CV front ends on "53 - '56 F100's. Have read your 2008 thread on the subject, and wondered if you have additional information (diagrams, measurements, etc) that you can point me to? Many thanks Lynnhowlyn in St George UT

    I assume that you are referring to the covers on the 460...those ARE rather hard to find these days especially in that condition. I found those years ago on ebay, while I haven't been looking for another pair I have to say I haven't stumbled across any either.

    KBS Rust Seal is already a super-paint, no further painting is necessary. What will be needed is some "tooth" for the bedliner to adhere to...I normally use a green scotchbrite pad to scuff the surface, then wipe down, and shoot the bedliner.
