My dad (RonC on fordbarn) and I got the chassis started and on the ground rolling today. after we got it running, after having been apart since 2009, i took it around the yard for a few test spins. my dad did also.

The chassis is almost completely done just need to finish the rear drums and e-brake carriers. The e-brake carriers were bent and in need of bushings. I ordered some parts from brattons. they should be in by the middle of next week. Once they come in i can finish up the rear drums and it will be time to take it for a test drive around the yard!!
