Henry, I hope things go good for you and your Dad. On the not so serious side, hang on to the COE, they are getting really hard to find for a fair price. When you get the time, build it right and drive the piss outta it. You will find you will get more enjoyment out of it compared to any other car of truck you will ever own. In the past I have had an AD, a cool street rod, a Porsche, MG, and still have a '46 1/2 ton and a FFR Cobra and none of these hold a candle to the fun and attention the COE bring.
Rob
P.S. or just sell it to me cheap, that will work good also.

Re: "Geronimo" 54' 3100 LS built in PA

thanks guys. my dad is still in hospital, has to get rid of new virus he got while being in there. has a trachea now, but he's slowly getting better going on 3 weeks in there.

as for the COE, I'v always wanted one and with some future plans I have brewing, I think I may make it a rollback tow truck. gonna build the 49 farm use truck next, prolly sell it even though Im in luv with it. I need to fund some other projects!

Re: "Geronimo" 54' 3100 LS built in PA

Hey guys, I'v been swamped with life and took a month off on the truck. I'm hoping to start back on it today actually. I have some final prep to do under cab and on firewall, getting close for undercoating and paint. Then onto the chassis.

I bought a garage in my hometown so I'v been working on that a little bit. May start my 49' Farm use truck in there. I haven't done anything with the COE and infact I may actually have to sell it. I hate to, but I have not money to do it how I want it done, lack of time also. With the the garage now I have more bills I just can't seem to keep up with. I knew it would be a struggle but if I got through it all, its worth it. I'v been really trying to step up my coffee business too, roasting myself now. Also my printshop, we just purchased some equipment that will drastically improve production capability. So I'v just got my hands in all my endeavors right now. Not to mention family and summer activities! Good news is, my dad finally came home after 2 plus months in the hospital and rehab.

Great news on your Dad. I just purchased some coffee from you on line, We're big coffee drinkers, hope it's good.

Life is too short my friend, don't spread yourself too thin. Stop and smell the roses once in a while. Words from an old timer who's been there. LOL

Happy fourth of July , Stay safe....

Congrats on the garage Henry and your coffee business, roasting yourself can't wait to get some more in the fall. Expanding your print shop is exciting too. Very glad to hear about your dad, one less thing to worry about.

Re: "Geronimo" 54' 3100 LS built in PA

thanks bob, yeah this spring was super stressful between getting the COE, farmuse, the garage, my dad's whole situation. Seems like summer is flying by. Money has never seemed tighter and I'm not even funding a build right now. My girl got a job so hopefully that will help, but it does really cut into our schedule now. Life is good though, can't complain. I will have some pics for you guys soon.

Re: "Geronimo" 54' 3100 LS built in PA

7-20

Sorry haven't been on here in a bit. been mad busy with summer. took another month off the truck but I'm back on it.

as most you know I bought a garage, ironically with the guy I'm building geronimo for. So we own this building together. For now its just a private deal. I'll work on my stuff and if he gets something in to tinker with. its a good investment I think, has an apartment upstairs that needs alot of work. The garage was def neglected, so we been cleaning it up and have alot more to do. It has a room in the front I could make smaller and also an office. It can really only comfortably fit two projects.

with closing costs it was about 30k, I couldn't build one this big for that. plus this is a commercial lot, good location, has a lot in the back, 200 amp service, a lift already there, plumbing etc. so now my plans are to build and sell another truck and pay my half off asap.

Re: "Geronimo" 54' 3100 LS built in PA

For Geronimo. I still need to finish up the body work on firewall and get it in primer. Seems to be never ending. Same with the dash. I then need to do steering column, doors, headboard, roof, all of inner fenders and rad support, before I spray epoxy. My goal is to get the cab on frame asap, so maybe I'll just do firewall first. I need to top coat the frame and finish the back half of frame.

I got the inside and out of cab all coated with chassis saver and Raptor liner. I really like the Raptor liner esp for spraying it. I used Herculiner bf and its ok, just can't spray it. The rustoleum stuff is terrible, their paints are good but not their bedliner.

as you can see I have NOOO room in this garage to have the cab off and work on it, its frustrating but I just have to deal with it. Thats why I want it back on the frame. oh and I need to clean up the trans and mount the actual trans bf I put cab on, so it just never ending.

Re: "Geronimo" 54' 3100 LS built in PA

way to go idaho! looks like there is an auto parts store next door (I googled it), thats a great location and great exposure!

invest in an alarm, something with video cameras. it sucks to say it, but every friend I have known with their own shop has been broken into and didnt know it till the next day. losing a welder or a plasma cutter or both will ruin your month.

Henry,
Congrats on the Garage. Looks like a ton of room. Great thing about it being commercial is you can make as much noise as you want with out any nosey neighbors whining.

Is it close to home?

PS: the coffee is great!

Re: "Geronimo" 54' 3100 LS built in PA

thanks guys. yes I aim to get a security system. alarm and cameras. The one bad thing about alarm is.... this is just outside city police jurisdiction, so burglars would have way too much time to take stuff bf state boys showed up. So I'm debating on that, at this point every bill is adding up to fast. Cameras I think would would help some, put some outside too. I'm a bit hesitant on putting any major tools in there right now. Its right in between my house in town and my mums house where I work on trucks at both places.

property is pretty cheap in Titusville (birthplace of the oil industry). But the flipside is, just small down whoas, not many good jobs and or businesses. Its ok but I travel far for my work as do alot of people here. Ironically this area had the most wealthiest families in the world at one time from the oil. now its a pop of 6,000 and not very wealthy. There are only so many houses or commercial properties that will be available for sale. let alone anything I could afford, so that's why dove in on it. Time will tell what amounts of it.
