DFW: I assume is present location
1 school local to you, Tarrant County College - Welding Technology

I grew up in Huntsville about 3hrs south of Dallas. Moved out to the west coast and decided to stick it out. As the years pass the reality of how cool Texas is sure weighs on the mind.

Thanks Redmanbob. That is at the South campus which really sucks for me cause i literally live about a 1/2 mile from the North East Campus. The North West campus wouldn't be that bad either but the south campus would be a beating to commute to. I still might look into it though. I read a bunch of stuff on line today that might help my cause. Where there is a will there is a way!

I've had the pleasure of watching this from the beginning and I can assure you, Tim is one helluva a fabricator. Think of what he could have finished by now if not for two young boys and baseball season!

Thanks Dewayne! I need to borrow your headliner? I will put it back in when I am finished.

Have it back by Sunday. You should have yours back together by then, right? If things work out, I'm taking the yellow truck out to Sandy Lake Amusement Park for the annual Ford Family Picnic. The granddaughter will be here this weekend.

Too bad its not a F250 4x4, that would handle the weight just fine. It can't weigh more than a 429 or 460. Also, you would not have that noisy monster in the cab with you...I expect, that it will work your A/C overtime.

Nice fabrication amigo, Kudos to you and your welding. I'm an inspector in a Nuke power plant, want a job?

Thanks. A all iron 460 weighs 720 lbs, a 4bt with one turbo weighs 750 and two turbos 775. The noise in the cab will be virtually the same weather it is against the firewall or 4 inches back. I am putting tons of noise and heat barrier so it shouldn't really be a problem I hope. Looking back, I should have saved my $ and put a Scott's front end under it with a 6bt. I am planning a 6bt in a 63 Galaxie now.

In reading back over this blog, I see you must be an instructor at the Tarrant County College, - welding technology. My grandson graduates from High School in a few weeks, and wants to be a welder. He lives in Inez, Texas, near Victoria. What can you recommend? I'd sure be proud of him if he ever learned to weld and fabricate like you can.

Thanks amigo

No sir, I am just a hobbyist welder; never had any instruction. I had mentioned I would like to take some welding classes and another member was pointing out the school close to me. Regardless, I think welding is a great skill to have and the welders in the oil and gas industry are making a KILLING right now.

I weld also, but after 40 years, I am not nearly as accomplished as you are.. Kudos to you. I sent the link of this to my grandson, in hopes that he will take the hint, and follow up.

Well done my friend, and keep the photos of your build coming..

I started making the new dash and laying out the locations of gauges, vents, radio and whatnot. I also got the seat stitched by a friend of mine so it is ready to go. And finally, I got all the pipes coated. Baseball is over in a week so I should be able to continue then.

Again, nice work amigo,

You are proceeding at the "Speed of Right", keep it that way. No hurry and you only have to do it once.

I recently bid on a black & chrome instrument cluster out of a F700, but lost out to a higher bidder. Old motto is "High bidder wins, but goes broke first". I will keep looking for one in the wrecking yards in Mexico, as they are not in to the bidding wars, like sharks feeding. I have the time, and I have the dime.

Nice seat also, love that stitching..
