Great work my friend, stay after it.
I was amazed at how well it worked. It's a lot easier way to fix those rust areas that appear around the rear hood brace. I hope you can make some use of it. Thanks for checking in.

Re: pdx-sanity66

I'm still working on the cab lights. I'm trying to find some suitable rubber sheets to make the mounting gaskets. I've tried 2 different types that didn't work and I've got another ordered that might be correct. We'll see.
I am continuing work on the doors. I got some filler applied and smoothed out on both doors and another coat of epoxy. Yesterday I did a small amount of filler on a couple of small places and the the next step is some slick sand. These pics are before the epoxy and final smoothing before the slick sand.

Re: pdx-sanity66

For cab light gaskets I was thinking that rubber roll roofing material they use on commercial flat roofs. Certainly UV resistant cuts easily with scissors, the right thickness, should be able to get some free scraps.

Good idea, I'll have to look in to that. Thanks

Re: pdx-sanity66

Soft foam rubber fender covers, they're about 1/16" thick... might work.

That's a good idea but I am actually looking for material 3/16" thick. I think I found something last night on the web that I am going to try. Yesterday I sprayed some epoxy on the inner patch area on both doors, did a little minor sanding, and now they are ready for some slick sand. I might spray them today. I also had one corner on the bottom of the pass. door that had some rust through show up when I blasted the doors. I have cut it out and spot welded the patch in. I also ordered new pins and bushings for the hinges so I removed the old pins so I'll be ready when I get them.
