    Ben, I recently moved from Georgetown, just North of Austin, to Washington State. I have a thread posted here regarding 8.8 leaf springs. It sounds like you used the 3" 8.8 springs on your F1 swap, what frame brackets did you use and how did you go about it? Sorry to ask here, but not sure you saw my thread. Thanks, Larry

    Ben, my project is really starting to pick up and I'd like to see some other trucks in the area. Would you mind some time if i stopped by? I live south but work north off Riata/183 so I could be pretty flexible if that's ok with you?

    Thanks!

    Ben, I love your truck! I'm about to fix my old 1950 F-1 up. Saw your posts concerning your color search. What is the name of the color you finally decided on? Ice blue? Thanks so much. -Mike

    Its going well. Ive got it down to the frame and everything is media blasted. Putting on the Mustang II IFS right now and trying to decide if I leave in the old engine mounts and work around them or take them out.

    what up guys I would like for all yall to befriend me at rust-n-rods I"v not seen not one of your trucks that isn't cool. I only have a few buddys around hear I can rap with about engines and such when I start to talk about how a cam works they look at me like im from some other planet. most of them know more about the moon than they do about a hotrod.

    Hey Ben, I'm also in Austin. I recently purchased a '56 and have decided, after much research, to perform the jag swap. I'd be interested in talking sometime as I don't have any local "car buddies" to chat and bounce ideas off. I'm in SW Austin, what area of town are you?

    Ben, Just got your message and yes still too new to receive anything. I think after 25 post I can. But thanks for the info. I'll keep posting and keep learning. What do you think about front suspension? Jag, mustang II, or straight axle? I would like to get a 8.8 for the rear also. Game plan so far is suspension then work my way up. would love to keep the flat head but I need more power to run A/C and 80 on the toll road (dreaming).

    Hi Ben, while viewing a post, I noticed the lights you mounted in your frame horns. I don't remember ever seeing it done like that b4, I like it a lot, wonder how it would look on mine, Hmmmmmm.
