We've got a '35 also. I've been told that the '35 and '36 cabs are nearly
identical, except where the front windshield posts come down: the '35 comes
down straight to the cowl while the '36 joins the cowl in more of a smooth

As long as someone else is discussing the status of projects. I can update
anyone on the list (who might want to know) about my 39 pickup I'm putting back
together. Just some quick info on the truck. It still has the original drivetrain
in it which runs. I have been basically going through it to get it road worthy.
Last year I completely rebuilt the rear axle and suspension, as well as the
brakes. I did convert to modern tube shocks on both the front and rear suspension.
I'm planning on driving this everyday and figured the ride would be better,
as well as it was cheaper than replacing the original shocks. So far this year
I've done some engine work (I had to replace the distributor). It worked, but
I couldn't adjust anything on it. The rotor and points were pretty hammered
anyway, so I checked prices and found that a rebuilt dist. with new points and
rotor was only about $30 more than the points and rotor seperately. I'm currently
redoing my guages. They are done except for the voltage reducer I've got to
throw together out of some radio shack parts. I've also converted it to 12
volts with an alternator. Right now the entire front suspension is sitting
out next to the truck. I dropped it all out and am completely redoing it(new
tie rod ends, king pins, spring shackle bushings etc...). I had to replace
the gas tank as mine was solid just crudded up real bad. I bought a stainless
steel one. Pricey, but I'll never have to replace it again. It should be here
next week. Hopefully I'll have most of this back together by the end of May
and be able to move her around under her own power.

Anyway I've rambled enough. If anyone has questions about any of this stuff,
I've learned some things the hard way and am willing to share my info.

Many of the people with or accounts
are either not checking their mail or in the case of ".com" addresses,
not having their mail software delete the messages after retrieval.

This situation is getting out of control, with half the mail queue
space being taken up by mail 3-9 weeks old. This weekend, I will be
installing software that will delete all mail over 3 weeks old. FTE
is not meant for online storage of mail.
