    Hello Fred. I'm in the never ending process of remaking my 51 ford F1. Making it more what I want as it already had a lot done to it before I got it. Anyway, I keep seeing your truck on here and I love the stance and how the wheels fit. Could you point me in the direction of a thread that shows how it came out that way?

    Hi John, just found this pm. I have since added the rear bumper. I had issues mounting my bracket to the higher holes and ended up with them in the lower set. The plate is partially blocked but not too bad. I am using an original 1951 plate that is shorter and longer side to side then the modern plates though. My plate hit the bottom of the bed when I tried for the upper holes. I don't have a picture with the bumper yet but might be able to talk the wife into taking one if you are interested.

    Thanks for the pic and info. I want to use the top two holes so the licence plate can be seen above the rear bumper (I notice your good lookin 52 does not have a rear bumper.
