No worries, post at your own pace. When i first found this place, I had lots of trouble learning about this computer stuff.
You will catch on after a while. Everyone has to start somewhere.

We are curious about your build and willing to help. Post any questions here in this thread and we'll help if we can.

By the way pweng1, where are you located? Maybe someone close to you could lend a hand...

Eisiest way to post pictures is to spend 20 bucks and become a supporter then you can post right from your computer

Not to worry, we're a patient bunch and we'll help you out where we can.

I know messing around and posting pics can be real frustrating at times. It seems like this forum makes it a little harder than others but you'll get the hang of it eventually.

Sounds like you have plenty of pieces to make a 4 door, hopefully you'll be able to use the far superior and better looking 48-50 grill and are not stuck with the lagter manure spreader, buck toothed, behemoth (since you're new I'll fill you in.....we have a friendly bantering back and forth between the 48-50 "monkey face" trucks and the 51/52 "manure spreader" trucks, its all in good fun and can be quite entertaining)

We have a member here, 48fordcoe, that has doen several 4 door COE trucks. Here is a link to his profile;

The '53 through '56 trucks are just know as an "Effie." They are sooooo pretty that no one makes fun of them.
