Is the bumper jack to keep from flat spotting the tires?

The floor is not level so we are keeping the truck level as we install the wood to fit and other made to fit items like the hood, doors, etc.

Dan, if you need more room you can send the Aussie truck back east again. I’ll take care of it for you.  Mike 

You know, it's that helpful caring attitude that makes it all worthwhile.

Another show stopper. 

Waiting for the shutter surround from the chrome shop and then reassemble the shutters and that should be about it for now. Hope to put a 5th wheel and winch on it someday.

I have a dozen of those machines. yes, I am an industrial painting contractor. Steel grit works great out west inland where there is no humidity and months without rain!! we also do a lot of robotic blasting with grit in penstocks. we had 4 units on this project for 2yrs.

 Do you have the emblems for the side of the hood ?

I do but this hood doesn't have space for the emblem? Note the distance between the louvers and the hinge.

That's odd.

It is and I have been looking closely at all of the early B's and F's that used the same style side panels. There appears to be many different styles and I assume it may have to do with the engine that is installed. This BM was ordered from the factory with the larger cube engine that was the standard in the BX so I am thinking there must have been a difference??

That could be.
