I'm arguing right now with myself -- an LS in a Ford or a Ford in a Ford... I think LS is winning. Besides --" I like pissing people off.[/QUOTE]"

You know what they say Greg, stick with what your good at !
Love both the car and the painting. Glad the wife is enjoying the car.

Oh if you post pictures of the pickup anywhere let me know I'd like to check it out as you get it done.

How about ticking off the LS guys for a change.

Do a build thread.

We don't need another lat-g guy who buys a RS chassis... and then stops posting about it.

You tell him Skip, it's obvious we don't care about GWs hotrod builds... this thread is only how many pages and views...??

Default Weld's 40 Ford pickup

I wasn't going to do a build thread on this project... but WTF.

I wanted to build this myself at my new shop - but realized that with building a new house over there - and the lack of "hot rod friends" that might be a real struggle. I don't have the resources over there -- buddies to just call and say "come help me with...." etc. And I want this done within the next 18 months or so.

I'm having Pinkee's Rod Shop build this project because he has the talent and taste that is what I'm after for this particular build. I'm building this as a daily driver for Sun Valley where the average speed is about 20 MPH. But I want to be able to drive it to Costco in Twin Falls or to Boise or wherever... so that's the way it's going to be planned. No bling - nothing fancy - just drive it rain or shine.

The goal is to have perfectly straight body - perfect gaps - flush windows - air tight - rattle free... easy to drive... great A/C and heat including heated seats.


The Roadster Shop chassis. Ford 9" on triangulated 4 link - coil overs front and back. 9" or 10" rear wheel... Wilwood simple brakes two piston front single rear... auto overdrive tranny... crate LS3 or SBF (maybe a Roush motor). EFI. Patina paint - but Gwen likes paint - so maybe a pale green (old skool color) or tan...

I'm talking to Eric (owner of Pinkee's) about bead rolling details into an all metal "trunk" and painting it like it's old tattered canvas covered and leather... and mounting this in the bed so I can have dry secure storage for groceries or luggage etc for road trips. Right now this is just an "idea".

I've asked Tracy of The Recovery Room - to come up with a "quality" version of "early horse blanket" for the interior. Not sure what that means but we'll figure out something. I think Gwen is going to have her hand in the details now that she's become an official hot rodder. For the first time EVER she was walking around the Pomona FairPlex looking at cars and telling me what colors she likes and which cars she liked and didn't.... and her tastes are an exact match to mine. Where we differed was on the paint scheme -- she wants old skool real paint - and I was thinking pure patina...

Here is what we're starting with - a body found in Wyoming by Pinkee's.

That will be one very cool daily driver! Glad you decided to make a build thread after all. This is going to be fun.

Yep!

Jeff, I believe it's now state law in Colordo that if you contract with Pinkees, you must post the build web on algores worldwide internet system...no matter what state you reside in.

I'll look into that.
