    Really liking the build Herb. Honestly did not like the look of the truck when I first saw FF was creating one but have seen their completed one in the beautiful blue and it’s really nice. Totally changed my mind and can’t wait to see more trucks built and know yours will be a beauty!

    Here's a pic of my door panel
    its only in the rough state , lots of work to go
    trying to keep in line with the dash
    it will of course be covered in same leather and chestnut burl
    window up and down switch will go in the door handle towards the upper front
    And the round hole will be filled with a speaker
    But have a look anyway .

    Herb-

    Everything is looking really nice. I admire your craftsmanship! You know, as nicely as the door card is turning out, you might consider selling something like that! HA...

    You do nice work, and I am enjoying following your progress!

    Regards,

    Steve

    Herb,

    I want to ask about you about those copper fuel lines. Are you concerned about metal fatigue? Won't the vibrations from the engine running loosen the fittings, if not the lines themselves?

    hi Dave fuel line no because it is hard plumbed on both ends and I used K copper which is VERY flexible and strong, there are compression fitting should also be fine . the heater lines should be OK for the same reason and where there pass through the firewall I have installed rubber grommets. BUT I plan on keeping an eye on them, thanks for your concerns, Herb
    OK well now lets get to the good parts. how do you like my Door Panels ??

    Yes I did decide to move them ,I thought the pulls ( doo Handles ) looked out of place the other way . And I like the clean look od the panels, I plan on putting the switches in or on the center console > I love the clean look of the panels and dahs So I will most likely put all or most of the switches in the center console out of sight

    FED EX called today bring a BIG pallet of backordered stuff tomorrow
