Jake I’m going to install a sliding back glass in my 56. What seal is correct? I thought you just used a standard rear back glass seal.

Looks good Jake! It won't be long now.

BJ, I thought of doing that to my 54 back in 98\99. But I decided against it. I thought it would help with airflow on hot days. Ask MidFifty what they would use.

i tried the standard back glass seal from mid-fifty, I cut it trying to pull the rope around. Iím not sure if the seal was the wrong size or the rope wasnít lubricated enough but I ordered the slider rubber from midfifty. It should be in Friday along with my side window lift chanels.

I managed to get the instrument cluster and steering column back in and completed the wiring for the exterior lights. I also got the rear fenders and tailgate back on.







The spots are because of the water droplets in the windshield

I e finished wet sanding and polishing all of the bottom of the truck, bed sides, tailgate, cab and fenders. All I have left is the back wall, roof and hood...

My clutch started sticking, looks like a need to fabricate a stronger bracket to rectify the situation..

anyway, this is how she sits at the moment:

thank you Greg, the two car garage has certainly made for its own set of challenges but things have come a long way. I should have it on the road in a few weeks, just need to get the side windows working properly and make some adjustments to my clutch.

Also, I went with a brake light pressure switch and I canít get it to stop leaking...

thank you! The compliments mean a lot to me. This is my second paint job, both sprayed in a Home garage. This one came out pretty good, there are a few imperfections but Iím able to fix them with a little wet sanding and polishing.
