    ALRIGHT>.... no more waiting!!!

    THe Stewart truck FINALLY showed up... 30+ days late.. anyway.. got it unloaded and got right to work..

    The packaging once again was great! B/O's were present but nothing we can't work past while we wait. Quickly unpacked the suspension components and got to work making the rear suspension for the custom 4- link. Threw the front on and started fitting the body panels so I get the fenders on to measure for the drag wheels and tires.... once it is down on the ground it will go off to paint... once the bodywork is done... I will start the build at full speed while the painter is doin his thing.

    all together about 1/2 a day on the truck then pictures for you all and an update to the boys at FFR....time to watch some hockey and plan my next moves.

    here ya go....

    Congrats! It finally arrived!

    I'll bet you're thrilled. So excited to watch the build. Thank you for the update

    Oh and that number 42 reflection in the door is a pretty cool picture.

    Got the cab trimmed up so I could get the firewall on... which moved the cab back some (which it needed).... then decided to look at the bed side now that cab is about where it needs to go.... only about an hour on it today...had to get some tips from Captain Ron...looks like I have what I need to make some progress the next couple few days .. this weekend should be cracking I think...hope to have most of the panels on.... we shall see....

    anyway...

    I did not trim firewall.. it should go on without trimming. You do have to trim the cab however to get it far enough back

    Got about 45 minutes on it yesterday to start the mockup on the rear legs of the roll cage... this working through the design and how much "tub" I will need to get these tires in the rear...

    Getting ready to trim some fiberglass tonight to get the panel gapped.... this weekend hope to have the engine in so mockup of the scoop can begin... and then start welding in the bars.... should be a "busy weekend"....

    anyway... something like this...

    Sorry that's what I meant to say. Is it the opening size or a flange issue? What exactly needed to be trimmed? Just curious as I get mine next week.

    It will be obvious. The body will need to trimmed around the side bars to allow the cab to shift back so the firewall will lay in there correctly. I wanna say I trimmed off about 1/4 inch... but that will depend on how much they leave for you. If you look at post 49.... I didn't wipe off the fiberglass dust in the area of the body that needed to get cut.... it looks like I messed with the firewall... but that dust came off the body

    Are the rear legs for the roll-bar going to bolt in like the Cobra or be fully welded?

    I assume bolt-in because how else would you get the cab off & on the frame after it's welded in place.

    Will it be effective as a bolt-in section or more for show?

    A few cool things got done today.... got my rear roll bars installed and they actually went in even the first time! Measured for like an hour... but hit the angles within a 1/4 degree. THe driver's side is completely in with a bolt in mount... the pass side is mostly in... have to finish the bolt in mount and trim the of the fiberglass around the bar... I like how it changes the look of the truck a bit...

    also test fit the engine.. the stock pan from ford racing does not work... so I will have to call wayne to hook me up with some VeryCoolParts oil pan... anyway... it's in there for now.. glad I found out now.

    Erik-

    Engine looks good in there!

    I like the roll bars as well; I'm glad FFR decided to add them to the trucks. Is that interior bracing on the bars your work, or stock?

    Do you plan on dressing up the bars where they exit the cab, or just leave them raw steel? I am looking forward to following along with this build, like all the others. I have always enjoyed what you do, and how you do it. I am sure this will be no different!

    Regards,

    Steve

    I'm interested in the insulation on the garage doors. Does it work? What did you use?

    Steve... the rear bars are "me" ... they don't come with the kit. I plan on powdercoating them the same color of the frame when I get that done. The holes in the body will get an an o-ring gasket for a sealed finished look. The interior roll cage is stock from FFR

    The doors for the garage are just done with some stuff I bought at Lowe's

    Great progress as always, and I am enjoying following along as always! Thanks for the answer on the roll bars too.

    Keep up the great work!

    As I wait for another infusion of parts from FFR - figured I could finally finish weld my rear roll bar... I the issue was it needs to be removable... well after a crap load of measuring and having to re-weld the "x" 4 times because the close tolerance connectors would not allow any deformation after welding... The first go around with the TIG was a mess... nothing lined up... so I ended up MIG'ing it while it was all bolted together...should clean up fine I think.. looks like it is moving just sitting there.

    Like the looks of that big "X"! That's going to really help pull the whole Pro Street theme together

    Wheelie bars anyone?

    Eric, any ideas on how you might finish the running board surface? Bedliner, wood strips, etc. ?

    It's you … seems straight to me.. might be camera angle.. ride height is also not set.. right side of car (left in the photo) is about 1/2 lower than the right.
