What a find...

Both of them have stress cracks just forward of the mounting holes that hold them to the top of the Cab.

Re: What a find...

It is funny how we miss things. I had a crack from the door lock pin to the edge of the door and found it after primer.

Good catch. Better now than later.

Re: What a find...

I just did the same thing last night. Looking over my drivers door that I was beginning to prep for primer and on the inside I saw a few "drips" of brass, no problem saw it years ago too and it looked solid. I ground it smooth and found that the metal was destroyed around it and of the holes wasn't filled with brass at all but just bondo. I did't want the extra work but damn glad I found it now and not later.

I removed all the funky metal and made patches to fill the holes to weld in tonight.
