Not much progress. But I did get some help over to get the top on. New sheet metal arrives tomorrow so I figured I would get the top squared away before attacking the next part

Well the sheet metal showed up today. Iím excited yet hesitant to get started. Not exactly sure which order to go in. Kick panel, A pillar B pillar rocker or reverse.

Kick panel, A pillar, B pillar, then rocker is the right order. This assumes no floor or cab support issues.

Good luck, Rg

I agree with RJ, but would assemble the front clip before final welding. Makes sure your gaps are good

Re: project what about...

Thanks for the replies! I figured I would have to put the door on and check for gaps. Didn’t even think about the front fender. No matter how much you read, it seems different when you get into it. Like everything in life. Second time around will be easier! Lol

Re: project what about...

I’m in the process of fitting the kick panel. When removing the old rusty parts, there was some seam filler in where the bottom meets the floor and between where it is spot welded. Do we put seam sealer between the kick panel and floor and then spot weld, or seam seal after?

I did it after because I couldn't think of a way to weld through it.
