    Help on my Rig Before ordering Sheet Metal

    I posted this 71 40 on the Mud after making its purchase last year. I call it a Frankenstein 40 because it was assembled with so many late model parts by the previous owner(s). Crazy enough, it has ambulance doors that fit perfectly. Also late model front doors, a factory roll bar and short...

    Rear Quarter Differences

    I'm getting to replace the quarters on my 1971. I'll probably have some bracing welded on my tub tomorrow sometime. I was looking at the quarters on CCOT and it states that the older models ('72 and older) have no gas tank cut out or marker light cut outs. Reckon I need a schooling on this...

    Jump Seat Upholstery Vendor

    Fellows, I tried in to search around on the forum but was rolling snake eyes. Believe me, it's not the forum, it's me. Isn't there a mud vendor here that is selling a better quality grade of jump seat upholstery? I have the short jump seats that I just restored but they need new skin. I thought...

    Grill Screen

    Starting to tear down the front of my 40 for a restoration. I removed the grill screen and noticed that the top of the screen had a gentle bend towards the engine bay. Should the grill screen be perfectly flat or is the screen manufactured with a bend? Being that this is my first 40, I'm really...

    Front Drive Shaft Question

    Today I removed my front driveshaft for cleaning painting and universal replacement. So I separated the sliding yoke from the driveshaft so I could clean the old grease from the splines. While cleaning the recess at the base splines at the sliding yoke, I saw some sort of felt packing. I used a...

    Ambulance Door Repair

    I'm just getting ready to jump into a full restoration on my 71. I have taken my ambulance doors off and the left is in great shape and the right needs a new bottom; to include the outer skin.

    Rear Fender Flares

    The 71 40 I own is sporting a set of rear fender flares which are riveted on to the body. I'm scratching my head but I don't think I see them going back on my restoration. Unless it was a factory addition. So were the rear fender flares factory options on certain years or models? I've ordered a...

    Early Running Boards

    I'm trying to score an early 40, mostly as a parts vehicle. The body panels are not just corroded but are rotten. Looks like the hard top is pretty decent so if I get it at a fair price, I'll snag it because it's all there. I noticed that the poor old rig has the older style running boards that...

    Need a Settin' Straight on Running Boards for my 71

    I'm dismantling my 71 40 which has a some later parts on it. Guess you can call it a Heinz 57 of sorts but I still love the thing. I just pulled the running boards off and there are deep cosmetic rust pits that I don't want to deal with. The major problem is that there's a fair amount of rot...
