Ford GP 25458

I am about half way through a total restoration. Frame needed front bumper gussets, rear "U" cross member. The rear frame horn ends had to be re-fabricated. Had to learn riveting to replace cross member and repair frame. Engine, axles, transmission and transfer case all were in working condition. However, everything was disassembled and rebuilt as needed. Now working on body. Front fenders and grill are finished. Body sides need a couple of patch panels. I'm trying to preserve as much of original sheet metal as possible. Hope to paint body in early Spring 2014.
