MY MODEL A TRUCK BUILD
I don't seem to have many pics of my 30 Ford model A pickup build. The top had been chopped 4 1/2" on one side, and 4 1/4" on the other side, and both front windshield posts were very badly done also. I mocked the back of the cab up against the shop wall, and sat on a milk crate and my hair touched the underside of the sheet metal, so I decided to put it back to stock height.
The cab has been stretched 4 inches lengthwise in the middle of the doors. This was a very ambitious project for a budding metalshaper. I had to build it up from many small pieces of cab, and try to keep it all in proper arrangement so the doors would fit and open and close. What a nightmare.
It is a low dollar project, and was painted in my own garage by myself, and yes, it's not a wonderful job and needs to be done again. I'm not going to pull it apart any time soon, till I get my 27 T roadster on the road.
Roof skin was from a '65 Ford pickup truck with the two ribs in it, running front to back. That was also an education in welding and planishing to install it. This project forced me to go buy a tig welder. I just couldn't planish the welds smooth enough using the mig. I was aiming towards a bondo free finish. Never achieved it on this truck, but it was a great learning experience.
You might notice that this was an earlier period in my life. Same garage as the other builds, far less tools.
