Thanks to everyone who responded to this! Now I have some
outside expertise to assist me when I get the time to look
into these parts of my truck more. And I'm sure I will
have more questions in the future... :)

Hi, I'm new to this list but have seen a lot of good information here.
So, I have a question. I have a 1950 F-2, all original, with good metal,
But the original paint has faded to the point where there is now a light
coat of rust over the entire body. What is the best way to kill the
rust? Sandblasting is not an option, so I would like to sand and then
use something to kill the rust before painting. Any ideas, anyone.
Thanks, Luke

I received the window anti rattle stuff and division bars today and I'm
about ready to install the power windows...(when the glass gets here). My
question..... can the window stuff be installed and then taken out to paint
then reinstalled after paint without screwing it up... ???? the original was
all but gone, so I didn't get to take it out and I'm not sure about this
procedure. help ???

Also, If any of you guys have installed the LectraGlide II power window
units and have any advice, direction, comments or warnings...I'd appreciate
hearing them.

One post to our group is better than a book full of instructions that have
converted from Japanese to english

You can reply direct to or post to the list...

thanks in advance...

F-1s had their own fenders back then. F-2 thru F-6's shared front fenders
and had wider wheel openings. F-2&3's rear fenders were also narrower than
the F-1. F-7 thru F8s had all around bigger fenders that were wider with
larger wheel openings. I hope this helps.

By the way how much would you want for the fenders you have. I have a '49

I have a Sparton 7 Wire directional switch without a diagram. I am trying to
adapt this to my 52 F4. Is this possible or am I wasting my time? Where can
I find a 5 wire unit that would fit my truck? many thanks, Nick.

Ford Truck Enthusiasts makes an annual trek to the
F100 Supernationals in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This
is the largest 48-79 Ford truck show in the world.
Each year, list members and web site visitors meet
there. This year, the non-profit Association of
Ford Truck Enthusiasts will be meeting there. AFTE
has several things planned, such as a breakfast and
picnic. One of the members, Gary, asked me about a
month ago to announce the event to the lists but it
got misplaced in my to-do list.

If you're interested in attending this event, there
is a forum on the web site site message boards (events
