    Hi, Bob, hoping you could help me with some info. I have a 1950 F2 that I decided to switch to a flatbed. The original bed was in very poor shape. I picked up a flat bed from a guy who was using it as a flatbed trailer. It's not a Ford bed.

    My question: how is the flatbed attached to the frame. appears that the metal cross members of the bed attach to wooden boards that run parallel to and sit on top of the frame rails. I saw a couple of drawings on your website but it's hard to tell. How exactly do they connect to each other? Would you have any pictures of the underside you could share? I am not going for authenticity, just want to make sure it secured OK.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Also do you have an online links that would be helpful? Also for buying parts have anyone you recommend and the link if they have a site. Also we are both in the midwest is there any local parts stores like NAPA, advanced auto parts, etc...

    Been looking through the photo shop thread on Hamb and saw some of your work. This spring when i get some better pictures of my 55 would you mind doing some for me? Have a couple of paint schemes in mind that i would love to see.

    Hi Bob! From this site and all of your posts, I feel as if you're looking over my shoulder in the garage giving me pointers! Thank you!! Question -- Do you mind sharing a photo of your hood latch spring set up? Does the photo of mine look right?

    The slit pin/cotter key broke off of mine, and I was SHOCKED to find the spring and bolt resting in the grime up in the hood after a 20 mile trip! I'm glad I found them because it seems that spring (#16862) is impossible to replace!

    With you being in SE Wisconsin (I'm in Oshkosh), maybe we'll bump into each other at show sometime.
