Started on this one today. Beam, trans and stealing gear removed. Body mounted to a dolly.
Opened up all the boxes. Looks like everythings here to put it back together.
First box I opened let me know whoever packed it was meticulous.
This box was amazing!!!
Need to get everything organized/stored in the morning then pull removables from the body.
We will build it if it comes.RustabusParticipantAugust 19, 2019 at 6:27 pmPost count: 2714

As far as I know… this is the oldest truck still around…. 😎 Thats about as cool as it gets right there!!! Possibly my only chance to body work some smooth gates!!!!! 😎
Were going to make sure shit fit’s right, gaps are as good as possible and repaint it and assemble it… With a later tranny and 1914 baby tractor motor.. this is going to be a shop truck for the Sailing Bridges garage… Cole said he plans to use it… Like we use our busses.. So.. Were going to shoot for correct, and respectful, but not over the top…. 😎 Which will be a tough line to draw with a barndoor…. 😎
This shouldn’t take too long…. 😎

Stored all the parts away this morning and handled a couple gap/fitment issues on the pass lower door and treasure chest door.
Also hung the engine lid and apron. Everything looks good

JJ. About the drain holes on the rockers and under the b pillar. Let me know if it doesn’t make sense and I can get clarification. From Mark:
”Drivers side, there is one pressed drain hole under the b-pillar….that’s it. Nothing else down the whole rocker.
Passenger side, pressed drain hole under the B-pillar, and three more down the rocker, but they stop short of the reserve hole.
Easy answer for John is , leave dimple drain under driver’s side b pillar- and remove everyone back from there”Pat KModeratorAugust 20, 2019 at 6:02 pmPost count: 2757
All cleaned up and back in the dirty shop ready for love.
We will build it if it comes.Scott SainParticipantAugust 21, 2019 at 4:05 amPost count: 387
