Re: Turn signal ideas

My project is a long way from needing lights, but I have been thinking about this. I really don’t like the modern looking lights. Not sure, thought about fog lights on front and use regular Ford tail lights? Use what ever you prefer. I like to not go drilling holes in anything original, I have mine...

If you use aluminum tube stakes (painted black) and have smaller tube to slide thru to tie them together, I could see that working well. Trick will be to keep as light as possible. I'd like to see pictures as you go along....

Re: Height of the bed

Make a slide out " bed" aka ramp the full length of the bed. I have seen some pick up truck 'slide outs' . but not used as ramps. Or mount the bed as low as possible.

What is considered the "correct new stuff"?
Just about any "new" grease will do the job. I use the red stuff. Sticks well. When i run out of that I just grab the green stuff. They all will work..

Re: Paint colors, ANd mirror placement.

paint idea!! I have not tried it (yet). But why not go with original colors and then "jazz" it up with that new pint that you can peal off!?? Still stick with the 'original' and also have creative freedom...

My mirror is high on the left. Round... Check out some photos...
