Pic of my 55 Ford with first snow fall today
So you're going for the patina look too eh?
Actually snow is hiding it, needs paint but like your method...
More progress. Tires seem to be holding air so far (no tubes). I have the front half of the paint cut a couple times but the back half is just sanded 800/1500 ready to be cut. I like both looks... shiny and dull (not at the same time though).
Where I spend my evenings...
Rustoleum enamel on the running boards...
A little progress... Cleaning up the engine compartment. Air cleaner is just sitting there for the photo but I'm going to repaint it since it bugs me a little. Wiring next...
2 different clamps on the cabin heater hoses ( which changed routing a lot ) …. not for purists !
It's the other way around for old American farm trucks. You use whatever you have so if it's too nice you can't hang with the truck guys. I'm going for the clean overalls crowd not the khakis and tennis shoes crowd.
Love the battleship grey, and the complimentary lighter color..Have you decided to keep it? (i.e., did you give it a name yet?...)
A clean engine bay is always appreciated.
Not keeping it. My list is getting pretty short, almost to the point of selling as is. I need to change the windshield gasket (I have a new one), change the headliner (I have a new one), clean up the wiring and add a rear tail light (have the parts and new lights) and the biggest and most important on the list is mounting a spare tire holder (have an old one) and refurbishing a spare wheel for it. So in other words, I need time, not parts or money for it. If I get into Spring I'll sell it in it in whatever it's current condition is. I can tell I'm getting close to finishing one way or another because I'm starting to think about my next project.
