1956 International Harvester S120 4x4

A look into the shiny future of this truck:


Polished hood edge chrome pieces....came up nice, but not show-perfect. If you look close there's a bit of pitting on the sides....would you send them for re-chroming?



Fender mocked up on box....looks good.






Before and after polishing up some dash knobs....can't wait to see them against fresh paint!


1956 IH 120 Series 4x4 restoration progress to date

 The truck is now 95% stripped to bare metal with 80% of the metal-work complete. A few rust patches to do on the cab, then we'll mock it all up and start the filer work, which will likely take up a couple hundred hours of labour....





               


 



With the complete stripping, I'm sure at least 100 lbs of old lacquer paint and primer came off!
