Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

thanks zepp and tigger....
I really didn't want black wheels but they only come in black....they're starting to kinda grow on me the more I look at it.....
I heard from ORD today and they suggested a 88-98 gm truck steering box...it mounts inside the frame...I looked at one in the parking lot and believe that ,with the crossover steering that it'll solve my steering clearance issues...

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

with the issues i was having with steering clearance and after talking to ORD ive decided to do a crossover steering....this will eliminate any tire to steering clearance issues....am going to use a 88-98 chevy truck steering box...they mount inside the frame and swing side 2 side.. so it should be perfect since this frame is 7" wider than the chevy frame...gonna wait til I get the engine set before I try mounting the gearbox
also finally got the rear fender and bumper off the other truck so ive got something else to work on now
was considering grafing the 2 fenders to make the white one with no spare tire hole but now im going to try to fix the old [bad] fender first...will get it blasted next week to see what ive got

looks like your down to the short rows on the siding job....I bet that's fun in this 90+heat with all the humidity...
No, no it's not. I finished the siding this weekend, minus the top row on the front/back. I have to mark out a new line for the soffit and get that installed and I can give my friend his lift truck back before he just comes and takes it

I also just bought a 1968 Pontiac Firebird. I did get permission this time, but I have to finish the house before I can mess with it.

Truck is looking good! Still can't believe how clean it is.
