Re: 1940 "project moonshine"

got a little more done.we worked on adding a piece to the lower rear fenders to fill the gap.we channeled the cab 2" and raised the rear fenders about 3 1/2" so the fill in piece was about 5 1/2".we cut the bottom of the fender off and bolted it to the running board to keep everything straight.cut weld grind.next thing we worked on was the bed to running board filler piece.we started by hammering it flat and re bending it 2" taller.thought it might look weird but i think when the new metal is blended to match the fender it wont be to bad.thanks chizzler

Re: 1940 "project moonshine"

few more updates.we made a shroud for the radiator and future electric fan.we also welded in some bump stops for the front and finished the sway bar.i found some bumper brackets on flea bay that were for a 40 truck and looked correct.once we tried to fit them they were not even close.we ended up cutting them and making our own.we would have been better off using $20 bucks worth of flat bar.oh well.chizzler

Re: 1940 "project moonshine"

Hey Chizz, what are you going to do if the sending unit goes bad in your tank? Will you be able to drop that tank out of there? I was going to get a tank just like yours for my 46 but I am leaning towards the smaller version (16 gallon) because it has the sending unit on the bottom.

Re: 1940 "project moonshine"

Hey thanx Chizz! I guess I'll do that. The only problem is your going to embarrass me with the type of work your doing. Plus the fact that I get this common disorder called lack of funds and interest. I may work on my truck for a month straight and then have to walk away from it for 6 months. But I guess my own thread makes sense, I can post all my issues in one place instead of all over the world. I'll try and get the thread started tonight.

Re: 1940 "project moonshine"

i am very lucky to be able to work on my truck in a full fab hot rod shop.(not mine)i do not have any other hobbies (drugs,women,ets)money is always going to be a issue but i feel you should try and buy the best parts you can and make the best of it.my suburban took 2 years start to finish.in that time i sold a 66 swb to fund my punch list until my house sold.i told myself i would replace it when the time came.the house finally sold and was able to replace it with something a little older.good luck and i like were your going with it.chizzler

Re: 1940 "project moonshine"

Yeah, that's why I said it doesn't look right. The original one that I have goes around the glass and is one piece with holes where the bolts to go through. Let me know if you find a place that has those.
Love your build!! Keep the pictures coming
