Welcome to FTE, the best Ford Truck Forum on the world wide Web! This is the place your questions will be answered!

The sheet metal you have looks pretty good, except for the doors. But they do sell lower door latch panels and bottoms. Your driver's side running board looks sent free. I think it can be patched. There are guys here that have done it. That will save you money and teach your class a lot. The assemble side looks twisted and bent. If that is not fixable maybe your patches for the driver's side can come from it.

Good luck and keep us posted.

Now that would be a good class field trip. What a great place to look at parts, ask questions of vendors and truck owners. You could come away with a lot of great ideas and needed parts.
Kevin is correct, shipping can cost as much as the parts themselves at times. Shoot the drive would be worth it to get Kevin's expertise let alone parts he has available.

What is the skill level of the students who will be involved in this project? I have some components that I could donate but they require setup and welding. I know that here in SoCal we have some fairly sophisticated high school programs for the trades where these kids can weld circles around me...will you have students who are certified in TIG and/or MIG?

This project is a multi-program project. We have a welding program and those students are going to be doing our welding. The welding program does have several students that have passed certification in mig as well as tig. Thank you.

Thanks...good info. I have a Paul Horton Welder Series MII crossmember that I bought and have yet to use, it is the non-welded version. Very easy setup, 3/16 ths steel with alignment tabs. Let me see what I have in the shop to pull together maybe we can get a full MII IFS for your project. Let me know if you have any one who gives you a break on shipping, that would help a lot.

Yes sir. That's great. I have looked at the mustang II fr. suspension setups. We want to go that route. We have some funds through donations. If you are going to be kind enough to donate this I am sure we can manage to pay the shipping. Thanks a lot.

Update on project

Here's a few pictures. We have been trying to get it all one color with some sanding and some rattle can primer.

Looking good! It's good to see high school boys hard at work!

And that right running board doesn't look too bad. I think it can be fixed....

More pictures and update on project

We had a car show Saturday and raised about 500 dollars. We have since tore the truck down again and started cleaning the frame. I would like to thank bigwin56f100 for the parts. I have contacted mid fifty this week and told them about our project. I asked them to help us out. I haven't heard back from them yet. I also am waiting to hear from Charlie on the I F S kit. I do have some money from donations and the money from the car show. My plan is to wait until next week to see what happens before ordering any parts. Thanks for the support.

MidFifty is sorta spotty on answering emails. Even if you ask something on their site. I'd call them if it was me.
