Trying to do it right the first time. Within my expectations of what I want.

Got a few more items to post soon. Slow leak of machined items and progress

Damn nice short Unibody Ford. Only made three years, 61-63 and my favorite grill of the three. All it needs is a 'Big Window' top grafted on. I've had a big window top-clip stashed for decades. I'll find the truck it goes on sooner or later. Those tailgates are hard to come by; Prone to rust badly.

 

Big window Short WB Fords are about as rare as NL320 'Sport Pickup' Unibody Datsuns.


Better to have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy !!

I had to order a new gate from LMC.

Just got my email and tracking number from Panel Craft. Floors are here by Friday.

 

Time to chop up those engine stands I have and make a rotisserie.

 

All the Uni-body parts showed up way before the Datsun stuff did. This weekend is a binge assembly on the Uni.
