Morning Pat and Rod.

Yeah, looks like the whole week's gonna be cold. Ug. Winter needs to be over sooner than later.

Morning Bill. I'm hoping the moisture we get this Saturday will be rain. That'll take care of a lot of the white crap around here!

Next week's supposed to start warming up for us, so maybe some of our white stuff will start going away.

In the meantime, my OBS wheel made it to TX yesterday to be re-covered, should be back in 2 weeks. Having them cover it in black leather with blue stitching...should look pretty good.

Good Morning Bill and I am sure pictures will follow when it returns.
Morning Pat and we are in the teen to 30 all week and Ma Nature has her fling here on Friday and hope that is the last of it for us. She gets it all out of her system.

Morning Bill, Rod, Pat, Craig and followers. Chilly start here with about the same temperature as you have Bill and I agree that the sun is deceiving this time of the year.

Good Hump Day morning PA, Bill, Pat, Neil and Gang. This last hoorah of Ma Nature is all I ever needed! LOL No snow forecasted toll Friday and it snowed last night at 15. Up this morning to dandruff falling at 19 and 63 inside! Time to turn the heat up!

Good morning PA, and my fellow wandering truck fans, happy Hump Day! Sunny today, but, we're in for more white crap tomorrow. Super.

Well well, long time no see fellow PA Ford nuts

All i can say is i'm waiting for this temperature to make up its mind so i can decide if i'm gonna freeze or if i can actually get some work done. The old ford has been parked waiting for some warmer weather so that bed can come off and that frame can be recoated with some rust prevention. And at the same time i'm gonna have to tackle the one cab corner again, the salt started some surface rust i'll have to tend to before it gets worse and rots out: then its time for a new rear fuel tank, a new vacuum canister and maybe the good used door going on the passenger side

And i gotta do that before i can get started on the Hacker, since i picked up a Rabbit diesel engine to replace its worn out suzuki 4 banger.....dang, i'ma be busy for awhile

Morning Pat and Ron.

I'm working on mine as I can, cold or no cold. Mostly doing interior stuff at the moment so it's not super sensitive to temperatures - other than my fingers and hands going numb lol.

True, i guess i could be preparing those captain's chairs i picked up, but so far finding the missing armrests is proving frustrating: i only found one set on eBay and the seller wants 70 bucks a piece for them. If they were in pristine condition maybe, but these are well worn and faded, so i'd have to recover them, assuming i could even find covers. Even thats proving tricky, i don't see any seat covers out there for captain's chairs, and i'm almost scared to think of what it would cost to have some made by an upholstery shop.

And yes, i know i could just look at LMC Truck: when it comes to interior stuff, i prefer to see what i'm gonna be planting my butt in BEFORE i buy it, if at all possible (usually isn't though). I'm old school like that

I'm going to have to make seat mounts also. But, since I'm not done moving the cab around, I'll get to those later. I've decided to focus on one thing at a time. Instead of wandering from piece to piece! So, the box is the priority right now. Besides, I hate working in the cold!!

I'm waiting for my engine and suspension parts to come back from powder and stuff, so I'm focusing on finishing the interior. I have enough stuff laying around and/or access to enough spare parts to get it running again if need be but I can't drive it without seats lol. I should have new carpet later this week/early next and just talked to my upholstery guy about doing the headliner and bucket seats for the rear so all is moving right along there.
