    What do you do all day? I am lucky enough to do what I love an currently one of my projects is a 40 Oldsmobile it was a really rough coupe but is coming along nicely. The painting part is wearing me out that is why I took up machining to add to my skill set an relieve stress. So far so good. 20170221_131043.jpg 20170221_131030.jpg

    Well, I'm theoretically retired, but I seem to be doing way too much building & remodeling work the last few yrs. I normally do a lot of automotive stuff along the lines of what your doing, all aspects. The Old's is looking really good, I know what a long road it can be getting to that point. I see we are both FB fans. Cheers, Mike

    I'm currently working on a 1951 Ford F2... 3/4 ton long bed truck.

    As I bought it...

    I am doing a frame- off restomod... installing a 302 v8, AOD transmission, power steering, and power disc/drum brakes.

    I'm in the middle of doing the body work on the cab, I had to replace the passenger side cab corner and both rear corners...

    20170125_134150.jpg

    I've got the chassis mostly finished...

    20170105_144601.jpg

    And I'm installing a '69 Mustang gas tank under the bed...

    20170301_094904.jpg

    It's keeping me busy...

    My truck is a single stage PPG "Cherry Red" and I know what you mean about the orange. Under artificial lighting mine can look pumpkin orange.
