1958 fleetside air ride build

Back again. Starting with a 58 cab and fleetside bed with trim. I plan on going with Camaro clip and air ride again. I am getting cab blasted tomorrow and ordering a new front clip to save some time. Stay tuned.Name:  20160331_194840.jpg

Re: 1958 fleetside air ride build

started pulling a dent along the bullet. I cut the side panel off the inside panel to rework the bullet.

Re: 1958 fleetside air ride build

Started on doors. I removed bottom panel that was rusted so sand blaster can knock out rust inside. That's it for now. I will post more photos tomorrow after the blasting is complete.

I loved the shockwaves. easy installation and a lot of the work has been done. I am going with them again. changing a few things on this one though.

Re: 1958 fleetside air ride build

Repairs look good.
If the pics are from your phone I think you need to rotate them before posting.

Re: 1958 fleetside air ride build

I got some more work done today. noticed a gap on the new rockers on the backside. I found that a few others have ran into the same issue with new rockers as well. I guess they aren't a wide as original. I will trim this and fit it properly when I remove the cab corner.

Where is this gap? I will be starting on steps & rockers soon. I'm going to align the door gaps first.

Re: 1958 fleetside air ride build

What I've done on the ones that have that gap is trim the front of the rock a bit and take a wide blunt chisel and drive the 90 degree corner back a bit. You can also slit the back edge and move that forward a bit and it usually all lines up. don't move it to far or the door edge will not look right on the rocker.

I've taken some apart that had that gap so I think its just how the trucks were made some times
