Hey I found somehting kind of interesting that might fit in with our lab project here.
I was looking through e-bay seeing if there might be a 48-52 F2+ with a decent bed we could all pitch in on and get for DV (you know - an anniversary or birthday gift type of thing) to cheer him up, and I came across these two trucks.
Look at the photo's - they are both long wheel base (one is an F2 the other an F3)....notice anything weird that might be related to what we are talking about?
Stock 8 Ft Express!
8 Ft cut in back?
Notice lack of gap behind fender!!!!
POINT: this may be exactly the kind of mod we are moving toward to give you the stock F1 look!
thought it was interesting!
