That transmission crossmember was built by Epic Rod and Custom out of Calgary, Alberta. I wish the dollar was at par with the U.S. I really need some parts.

The exchange rate right now makes it hard to pull the trigger when ordering parts. I waited almost three weeks before I ordered steering u joints and shaft just hoping the loonie would go up, finally just bit the bullet and ordered. Could have waited though, I haven't had any time for the truck lately. Your truck sure looks good layed out.

What about the upper bag and control arm brackets. I've never messed with any of the mustang ii stuff.

Re: 1953 Chevrolet Truck Aka the money pit

I picked up a Eastwood Contour SVT tool last year, just started using it. By far this is the best removal tool I have used besides the little cookie disks which i will be hopefully using soon to do some more fine finishing work, body work is definitely not my strong suit but none the less, I enjoy it.

Re: 1953 Chevrolet Truck Aka the money pit

On the Eastwood SCT, did you order extra pads? I heard they wear down somewhat faster than expected. Also how long did it take to strip the cab with it? I was excited when they first launched these a year or two ago.

Looking good. I just found your thread. Subscribed.

How did you like the Welder Series stuff? I'm considering their air bag parallel 4 link for my 59. I know what you mean about the Canadian Dollar, makes it tough to order parts.

The pads last quite a while, and they have come down in price as well. I really enjoy this tool you can get instant gratification using it. Im not very good at metal work but this leaves an amazing finish.

Welder Series is great, I have also bought from Horton Hotrod out of Ontario, they have lots of parts and very fast shipping. Your project is looking great, what part do you live in Calgary?
