    Hi Ben. I have a question about using stock inner fenders with an IFS kit. My inner fenders are hitting the top of my shocks. Is this a modification that needs to be done when using the IFS? My truck didn't come with inner fenders but I'm pretty sure that the ones I bought are for 53-55.
    Thx. Tod

    hi ben , como te va ? hace mucho tiempos que no me paso por el foro, llevo ya seis meses sin poder terminar la camioneta por culpa de la parrilla, la envie a una empresa de aqui para dar un acabado cromado y despues de meses y haber hecho el pago estoy sin dinero y sin parrilla. Es frustran te ya que es lo unico que me queda por hacer. En referencia a tu pregunta en el correo estuve mirando pero no hay ninguna en venta en Espaņa en estos momentos, si encuentro algo os lo comentare.
    Un saludo para usted y su familia , espero pronto poder terminar la camioneta y actualzar con unas fotos

    I was wondering what color your f-1 is? or if by chance you had the color code- its a great color.

    Ben can you give me some ideas on front disk. I was looking at speedways kit which looks really nice and not TOOOO expensive. I want a master cylinder that i can mount on the fire wall do you know what i can use? Going junk yarding in San Antonio hopefully next weekend for a 8.8 D4-limited slip rear. I have seen before to take everything springs and hand brake. Can i use the explorer leaf springs? could i possibly use the master cylinder from the explorer also? need all the advice i can get.

    Hey Ben - thanks for getting back to me. I will definitely hit you up soon, as I get stumped often. Are you planning on going to the Roundup this year? Or do you ever make it down my way to Cars & Coffee on 2nd Sundays? Would love to see your truck and compare notes.

    Hey Ben - after spending a million hours learning from you FTE geniuses, I figured I'd finally reach out and say hello to a fellow Austinite. I've got a '49 F1 that I've been working on since November and plan on taking to the Roundup in a few short weeks. Would love to pick your brain as I scramble to tie up loose ends. I live out in Steiner Ranch but travel all over for work. Let me know if we can catch up soon.

    Ben, I recently moved from Georgetown, just North of Austin, to Washington State. I have a thread posted here regarding 8.8 leaf springs. It sounds like you used the 3" 8.8 springs on your F1 swap, what frame brackets did you use and how did you go about it? Sorry to ask here, but not sure you saw my thread. Thanks, Larry
