      Looks like it's gonna be little while before Dan can start crankin out parts so I'll give the C-cab a rest and get this truck going. I did a knock out with junker stuff and it will work with the stock deuce frame. I'll start with the cab in case anybody wants to build one you can learn from my screw-ups (I did those on the junker)........ First you need a Deuce body and enough nerve to cut it up, here we go.........



      cut 3/4" behind the door jam.



      use the body lines to cut around the back of the body




      Yeah, you cut just whack off the back and glue in a piece of flat sheet styrene Grandpa's pickup but how cool would that be? I want to give it some bling!





      O.K. clean up the cut and shape the molding.

    Don, What other ideas are you going to incorporate into it. I personally would paint it Plum Crazy or some other Hi-impact color, so that it would either match with the Hemi Deuce or contast with it. Are you going to use the stock seats or do you another idea?
    You can have any color you want, as long as it's black. Henry Ford

    Inner skin for the back of the cab. .030 sheet styrene Grandpa's pickup .





    I glued a strip of .080 x .156 under the body molding to position the inner skin against.



    Mock-up of inner skin.



    Now for a little more trimming and fitting.
    Pattern and measurements to come.

    Nicely done, Don. That's a really clean build. I can't wait to see the finished product.

    This is great, exactly what I wanted to do for my next project. Thanks for posting those photos. Do you think the pickup box from the T kit could be altered, to use? Please keep posting pictures of your project. You guys have some great ideas.

    The T box would take so much modification that I think it would be easier to build one. I will post photos and specs on the box (complete with a diamond plate tool box) as the build goes on.
    The back of the Deuce body could be cut off square and a flat piece of sheet styrene Grandpa's pickup used as a cab back, a lot easier, but I wanted the smooth curved lines of the Deuce to continue around the back.

    BTW....don't throw away that chunk you cut off the rear of the Deuce.

    TIP: Narrowed a bit it would make a great Deuce mini travel trailer.

    Looking good Don, i realy like how your doing the back, i was thinking of doing a pick-up, i was going to try and make the curves at the back with plastic tubing, no doubt you have a better way of doing it.
    Don youve got mail.

    Man, you can't help but learn some of these great techniques. This sparks a lot of other great ideas. Great work Don.

    Damn now I need another Big Deuce kit! LOL!!! I can already see the end result. Got me lookin' at mine now, but I'm already too far into the plan to go changin' it at this point.

    The one thing I'd do along with what you've started would be to lose 3/4" behind the door once it was all rebuilt. OR, leave it that length and rebuild the doors to be shaped like 3 window coupe doors.

    Will be watchin' this one fer sure.

    Glu......I will be changing the doors. I'm thinking about making them suicide and rounding the lower front edge like a '34 along with '34 style fenders and grille.
