G-Day Guys just a few photos of ongoing projects Photobucket is all over the place so here we go the F600 is going to be just a water cart sprayer on the back it will be a tray body with the tank bolted down the tank is a piece of 75mm PVC with a bit of wood jamed inside to get the oval shape plastruct ends parts box for the rest of the bits and pieces.The tipper will be a Ford LTL no bunk made the tailgate hinges work,it's just built with stock sheet the hoist will be a cut down car aerial colour not sure yet the spray truck will be done in the old CRB colours,and last but not least my 56 Ford after it's trip to the W.A. Street Rod Nationals. Cheer's Col.

Col;
After talking today and looking at the ford you're doing, I was sitting having a smoke in the shed and thinking about your 650, and the 200 cab you mentioned.
A idea came into my head;....we two old blokes should do like a "Scone bake off"
you do your water tank, I'll do....?? a box van?...(battling for ideas here)
Got, early fords, closest i've got to you would be 50, 53, 55, 56 ford...or 41 Chev, you pick one......
just keep updating on here, on the one post...up to you, what do you reckon ?
Something to do..?

Col
Couldn't bring myself to do the chop up on the 50, it's got brake lines and all the other crap you do when you're enthusiastic.
Are the rules set, or can I change it to this ?

50 chev, 3 ton tray ?
