My 1952 Federal truck was originally a short frame water tank truck, I needed to lengthen the frame to accommodate the design of the house I wanted to build. 
Since I was more of a woodworker than a welder, it was nice to have a friend who could do the metal work for me and the first thing to do was cut off the old bumper.  The bumper would be reattached at a later time.
