      The temptation has proved too great for me, so I went out and bought myself another kit, specifically for this project. As this is my first attempt at doing anything like this to a kit I would appreciate any advice you may have to offer me.

      The model will have the flathead engine from the Big Deuce kit. I am also going to put the Big T seats in this project, that Don veyy kindly sent to me.

    I will be doing some exhaustive research, before starting in this project.

    If you want to do a prototypically correct '32 Ford truck, even if it's turned into a roadster, you'll be lookin' at substantial reworking of the body reveals around the ****pit. I tossed the idea around for a bit, and decided to go the other way...basing the idea off what someone may have done to make an rpu from roadster body parts in 1:1 Project Roadster Pick Up scale. At least it's how I'da done it. :D

    Somewhere, I have an old SAE or Car Modeler that has technical drawings for reference, showing very clearly the lines and shapes of the real deal. I'll have to see if I can dig that up, if you really want to go for a correct cab.
