Finally have time to work on the truck.
I have painted the frame with POR15 and then an epoxy paint.
I have the engine all assembled, painted and installed.

Re: 1926 S-26 IHC Custom

I know it is a long shot but thought I would ask. Did you make any patterns for the wood cab pieces. It looks like i will be getting a 1926 S26. Body is in good shape but no cab.

Thanks

No, I didn't make any templates. There is a template that was made by another member, I hope this helps.

Re: 1926 S-26 IHC Custom

Thank You. Is the Six Speed Special cab the same as on the S26? I have a @929 SSS already if that is the case. If nothing else it seems like the S26 cab is longer but maybe it is because many of the cabs I have seen are wood. Working on getting some rims to be able to bring it home. Also need to find a piston for the 4SL Lycoming engine which may be a challenge. Thanks Again.

Installing the new Cab, its looking like a truck again. Its been a long 5 years, hoping to have it on the road for spring.

I am not sure on the cab size for the change in models. I replicated my cab from the old one.
