Re: Project: Montezuma

If that is the cause then I can just put spacers on the mounts to level it out with the rest. I might be able to compare that measurement between the new and old pan, but the old pan is pretty rough.

Re: Project: Montezuma

On to the DS...

Think ive finished up the pillar. Next move is to make the final cut on the cab corner and make sure everything still where I want it.

Video taped it and will upload it to the channel.

Re: Project: Montezuma

Okay! Got the cab corner cut to fit and mocked up nicely. Threw on the outer rocker and that is a MUCH better start then I had on the PS....

Burnt in the pillar and cleaner it up so I can seal it in place tomorrow and prepper the cab corner for sealing also. Tomorrow is the warmest day I have coming so I figured id use it...

After I get this all sealed and back together I should be about ready to post the video footage since the previous update. Moving right along....

Re: Project: Montezuma

Wish I would've found this thread sooner. I also bought the high hump floor pan and have the same issues. I would've went with the regular floor pan instead. I chose a different route and bought another cab that's solid and doesn't need all the rust repair. I'm now trying to decide what I want to do with my original cab. Repair it all at a later date, sell it with what repair panels I have or part it out. Very informative post and keep up the good work. Thanks

Re: Project: Montezuma

Read over the paint info and it requires no less than 65 for 24 hrs.... Well I couldnt hold off progress anymore so I borrowed two space heaters. Used the propane heater to get garage up to temp and the space heaters to maintain that area...

I jammed a screw driver between the pillar flange and the floor pan so I could get sealer between them.

Tomorrow ill be ready to tack the cab corner in place and keep rollin

Re: Project: Montezuma

Looking good. Glad you were able to spray some epoxy. The temps are slowly getting lower and staying there. I am at the same spot as you, however I need to sandblast and epoxy my cab corners but don’t see any 60+ degree days in the near future. Keep the progress moving.

Re: Project: Montezuma

Yeah you are doing your work outside right? Might be problematic........ I saw some guys who use a cheap(ish) enclosed car tent and a propane heater. Definitely not efficient but it gets it done for them.

Also once it flashes you can always try the old heated blanket trick...

Yes, outside unfortunately. I am to the point I will likely haul it to where I am storing my frame, but might try to get a bit more done first. I have thought about the tent option but feel it would be a cluster. Trying to just be patient! Yours will be buttoned up pretty quickly!
