Done! Photos of just finished 1948 F-3 stake truck

Spent the last few months painting the frame and undercarriage, installing new wood for the stake bed, and then doing a thorough re-spray (primer, sealer, color and clear) at my friend's shop.

After working on this truck for many years, I can finally say that I'm done. Pretty much. At least until I find something else to improve.

So, I took some photos. I hope this post works, I'm not always that computer savvy.

Very nice, very nice! It is good to see nice stock rebuild. How long is your bed? It fits nicely on your truck. I see it is from a later Ford truck (like 1965-1976-ish).

I like your stake sides. They look like the original.

I like your vintage turn signals, too.

Well done!
