EFDEB06D-817F-4FEA-858F-04ABCFF28DF0-3553-0000013BF2F11F66.jpg

every screw had to be drilled out or had to have a nut welded to it

made the top of the pillar to fix up what was going on 

7a1cd39b-ec2e-4dd7-a72d-00df3f3e3a18_zps535d47f8.jpg

remade evrything at the top the bottom where there was rot and where the tank sits 

dd9d5d09-127f-4085-b027-fc17c59e71f3_zps57904ca6.jpg


doors are rotten on top and repaired with brass 

b1159379-0e8b-4783-9f0e-bc14d8e04d60_zps84af84c7.jpg

drivers side took a good hit .

dec07f79-39aa-466f-bba4-c2e7f7a158cb_zps1e4029f4.jpg

we may be looking for another door or a top soon . but the bottom will need a full skin as well

afe2ab1a-909e-4b30-b256-2a3e39f37932_zpsd092cf6a.jpg

things escalated quickly 

8672c68e-db24-4482-921f-99d98172a8fb_zpsa35a9b02.jpg

why dont they make pickup truck subrails ? tudor stuff isnt even close !!

c2f6d437-7fe2-46cc-a179-9a6d7093b869_zpsf8657fb0.jpg

luckily i had some old pickup subrails in stock . they have to be spliced in and the tudor new subrail had to be narrowed on the outer edge . nowhere close to being right out of the box

a53df8fc-f671-45ca-ad13-83c70d4fbfe8_zps4c6d059f.jpg


only 2 things i had to do get this crossmember to stock specs ..a little trim and weld on a new edge 

07e883d1-0537-49af-bb97-86afe06518d1_zpsab6d332d.jpg

and bracing under the bolt holes 

weld through primer on both sides

bracketry all coming together 

0d876f9c-76bb-448f-a108-58b106ae361a_zpsf18fd940.jpg

not to bad for a bunch or repop/mismatched stock parts ! 

168774ac-007d-43ca-aa69-642c41467c28_zps8e9c4b95.jpg


well getting this door all apart 

ca87da5b-4e88-487d-88ac-ef41e4572a79_zps835e42de.jpg

even the ppatch panel was starting to rot out . nust have been a very old braze job / patch 

a9fd3b29-135d-4ab3-b907-30bd5dcc9784_zpsde55cdf6.jpg

making a new skin . bead roller , english wheel, shrinker stretcher 

b05f6cd6-9edf-4af0-aa2d-14bfe0b7c12e_zpsfac24f38.jpg

so i had the decision to make of putting the patch for the back of the cab in down low and fixing the whole back panel with all of its dents and dings or make a whole panel . the whole panel will save tons of hours in body work compared to what had to be done to the orig panel . Honestly it was only and extra 3 Feet of welding to replace the whole back .

panel we made up

b3983b32-fff9-4b91-9e8b-ed37f505caa0_zps68c84e73.jpg

with a place with little to no hammer access you want the best possible fit in the world .

How's the progress on this? I bet it looks great and far different from the old, rusty truck parts.
