    Matt's '36 Hotrod Truck build

    Ordered my truck kit April 10th. Ship date will be in July sometime. The FFR guys said it could be sooner but the dedicated garage is still under construction so I asked for a later date.

    Plan is to use the running gear from a '94 SN95 Cobra I picked up a while back to get started. I'm sure it will snowball to bigger and better eventually but I want this to be a driver not a show truck.

    If there are any others building a FFR vehicle in southern interior BC let me know. I may need some assistance along the way and I'm always up to help out when I can.

    Matt

    While I waiting for my truck I am working to complete my garage so I guess it is still part of the build. Also learning how to put pictures on here for when the build starts.


    Let's see if that worked.

    Success! Lots more pics in the gallery but you get the idea. Separate garage just for my stuff. Will pour the slab next and get the hardi-board on. Then electrical, insulation and drywall. Followed by lots of storage and a hot rod truck!

    Still playing with inserting pictures. Found a big rock when I dug the foundation for the garage.

    Been busy with the kid graduating from college but I did get some work done. I was able to pour the floor and apron and started to build a loft for much needed storage.

    Shout out to Stewart and Factory Five for their professionalism. Stayed in touch constantly and the shipment arrived on time. We met in a parking lot across the border and loaded everything into the trailer. No muss, no fuss and only a few things on back order. Had all my paperwork from Transport Canada arranged thru Factory Five for an easy trip into Canada, just had to pay the taxes. Getting exciting now!

    Safety announcement for those who buy their chassis uncoated, these CNC cut pieces are sharp! While I was walking around the shop carrying a box, I smacked into the upper control arm mount with my shin. Didn't even hit it that hard but it made a mess. So.... I will be going over all of the sharp edges with a flap wheel and file before moving on. I've put padding on those areas for now LOL.

    All good, just a few stitches. Really didn't hurt that bad to be honest. Got the first bit of blood sweat and tears out of the way.

    This will not be the last of blood issues in the garage. Be safe out there.
