Bill has been restoring his '46 Ford Truck that he brought in across the water last year. Here is what he had to say about it and some pix.

"Ray, you would recall that I am restoring the abovementioned truck. Its starting to get REAL close to being done and on Tuesday night I had a mate who pinstripes come down and work his magic on the bonnet and tailgate. He is also did a piece on the dash (hard to photograph) and the hubcaps. I will send a pic of the hubcaps once I get the rims reepainted and the new whitewalls mounted. I just loved watching him work and have asked him to pinstripe the shed jukebox and old school beer fridge shortly. People with those skills and a steady hand amaze me."

Bill, you better watch out or he will be pinstriping your Squarebirds next!

As an update, the auto sparky is working his magic today with a total re-wire using old school cloth covered wire. When he pulled the instrument cluster we were amazed at how clean it still is. You can clearly see the build date of Dec 14 1945 on it and the part number etc. No ROT sheet under the seat though unfortunately!
