Finally done ... and thanks for the help!

I am officially calling the 28 month restoration over for this stock '52 F-1. Now I am not saying I do not have some improving to do... there are several parts needing some attention and one leaf spring sags more than the other. But last Friday I was able to get my tag and drove around town a bit.

I wanted to thank all of you on this forum and on Fordbarn for all of the help, advice, and parts you have provided over this past 2+ years. I could not have gotten this far without you all...

To celebrate, I created this slap-stick video with some of the many pictures I took along the way....

YouTube - Delores truck video mpeg2.mpg

Thanks again for all the help!
Fred

Hey Hey showing a lot of talent there, buddy. Great truck and video-you do pretty work. I'll show that video to my wife, maybe get her to sanding fenders or something.
