    Tom-

    She turned out GREAT! I love everything about it, and I know you must be pleased.

    Good luck at the show this weekend. I am sure it will be well received.

    Really nice job, and I appreciate you having us along for the build. I really enjoy watching your builds; always quality stuff!

    Regards,

    Steve

    Thanks guys for all the kind words. Had a nice day at the Gainesville car show. Met lots of folks who loved the truck. Here is some pics of some other neat cars I saw. Several FFR cars I was involved in as well.

    I got a chance to see the 35 in person at the event at Santa Fe College in Gainesville yesterday. Believe me - the photos on this forum don't come close to seeing it in person. The attention to detail is unreal and the
    paint.... well, I don't know how it could be better. Not a flaw, ripple or blemish to be seen. Engine and suspension look fantastic. And, the sun brings out the tiny gold metal flakes in the paint that are virtually invisible. WoW!
    It saw this car when it was a roller - to see it finished is wonderful.
    Tom (Mr. Factory Five South) has a right to be super proud. Not only is his work top notch, he is such a great ambassador for Factory Five. He had stacks of brochures and literature and answered millions of questions.
    Outstanding!

    Tom can you show me what you did with the dash where it meets the W/S I asked FFR for the weatherstrip and they sent me 2 pieces of glass W/S for 33 HR.

    It is the regular bulb seal that goes over aluminum. Here is a link to FFR catalog, you can also buy it from McMaster-Carr.

    Marv, I have been looking at the same W/S transition. I also got the two piece strips that would leave a gap.
    I found the McMaster Carr bulb seal no. 1120A212, 3/8" bulb, 1/8" edge, fits fairly well. But the 1/8" grip edge seems a little too tight and bulges up somewhat. I may try the 3/16" edge stuff they have in the 3/8" bulb, no. 1120A312. The 3/8" bulb size is perfect for me.
    Just thought I'd share my research. I think the 3/4" bulb FFR product is too large for my W/S gap, and it is over a $ more expensive per foot.

    I have to ask, has anyone been able to modify the frame to gain more space for the cabin. For example, moving the seat back a few inches. I have sat in one in progress and found it a little tight for my comfort.

    Tom you did a wonderful job on your truck and the paint came out great and the color you picked just pops in the sun. I wished I could have made it to the car show and saw your truck in person I bet pictures don't do it justice. Not only that I would love to meet you and pick your brain. I am ready to get started on my 33 but the doctor said not yet . I went out in my shop when the weather was nice last week and after about an hour I was tired and wore out but it felt good to just be out there even if I didn't do anything. What is your next build if you have one because I enjoy reading your builds you always learn something. Have a good day.

    Finally after a month I got an appointment to title and tag my truck on 4/2/19, Yea! I will be in Tampa at the NSRA show on Friday or Saturday next week with my 35. It depends on the weather. Whatever day is looking like less chance of rain I will go. If it is a washout I won't be going.

    Tom,

    I'll watch the weather and go also. Maybe we can have lunch together at Portillos? Do you like Chicago Italian Beef sandwiches?

    Got the truck titled and tagged yesterday. Got home and went for a ride 2 miles up to the gas station. Truck ran well for about 1 mile and started to run real rich. Barely made it home. O2 sensor went bad. Replaced it and spark plugs today and took it for a ride, then went to dinner with Marsha this evening. Runs great now. Very fast for an automatic! Going to put about 100 miles or so on it tomorrow. If all goes well I will drive it to Tampa on Saturday to the NSRA show.

    Thanks Guy's! It was a really nice day at the show. Being the only FFR 35 Hot Rod P/U made it extra special. Ken it was great to see you and your wife in person again. Your 35 is coming along nice as well. I was able to give away about 50 FFR brochures and DVD's. Many kind words about the truck from lots of folks. It was a great day for sure.
    BTW, I look thinner kneeling down, LOL. Here is the youtube video. Check out 16:05 for my 35.

    Had a great time yesterday at the Gainesville downtown car show. I gave away all my FFR brochures I had left. Gave away about 30 DVD's as well. Lots of interest in the 35. Went to show with my friends Art in the 55 resto-mod, Greg in the 64 Dart GT and me in my 35. Art won best of show! His car is awesome. Met lots of folks and kids that just fell in love with the 35. When I came home 2 boxes of FFR brochures were waiting on my at my gate. Thanks Sally! Went to a cruise-in later that night but got rained out. The 35 worked out great in the rain. No problems at all.

    Well it has been 90 days since I got truck painted. I got the Ok from my painter to install my custom car/truck cover from CCC. They gave me a form to fill out all my dimensions and made one custom. Fits great IMO.
