Not this year. We're busy working on the house to get it ready to sell so we can downsize a bit. Maybe next year though.

And here's one more clearer photo of my new Paladin holster knight on the dash. I'm really pleased with it!

That is Neat with the Knight on your Dash! Palladin was a Man's Man and he had a way with the Ladies at the same time. Loved that Show

Re: Markeb01 Build Thread

Well my latest adventure has been installing a Trique/Altman Easy Latch on my driver's door. Rather than taking an hour like they estimated, it took more like two weeks to finish the job. The first task was removing the inner door handles and the interior door panel. After that I removed to forward door control mechanism, and disconnected the link to the door latch. And next the door latch was removed from the back of the door. This was not an easy task as shown on the 1965 video which is published, because after the upper and lower screws are removed from the rear door track, the track cannot be removed from the door. It appears to be welded to the door at the upper end and won't move at all.

Re: Markeb01 Build Thread

Next up using the template provided in the kit, I marked the rear edge of the door for cutting, and removed the piece with a Dremel tool and a cut off wheel. By the way that cut off wheel was brand new when I started! It made a perfect incision and no trimming was needed. Next, per the instructions the latch was connected to the mounting plate, and attached to the door using the only factory inner door panel mounting plate hole that lined up. The holes were marked and drilled, and it was subsequently discovered that the outside door handle probe was too high, and would not release the door latch. So after hours of refiguring everything, I redrilled the holes higher up and the latch fit and worked perfectly.

Re: Markeb01 Build Thread

I filled the two lowest holes which showed below the latch plate, and installed the latch, plate, and connected the inner control handle after bending a slight uphill tilt on the end that connects to the latch. After this I spent hours adjusting and filing the door jamb post plate to get the door to close tightly and correctly. I finally got it all lined up and working perfectly, and here's what it looks like. Next was reinstalling the tufted panel and door handles, and the thing operates like our Honda CRV! I still need to touch up some paint on the door around the door panel, which I'll get done in the next couple of days.

Re: Markeb01 Build Thread

Oops, one picture fell out. This was a shot of the door after the template was cut out for clearance to fit the new latch.

Thanks for the Update. Those latches are a lot safer than our originals.

Re: Markeb01 Build Thread

Impressive as always! Your build has given me so many ideas that I want to do to my truck, but I don't have the time to do it all

Re: Markeb01 Build Thread

Just discovered your build after voting for your truck and I love the truck man! On the bed have you thought about trying to open up the wheel wells with the opening cut out of a set of front fenders instead of running the newer bed?

Re: Markeb01 Build Thread

I've thought about it several times, but I don't have any welding skills so I'd need to hire somebody else to do the work. And I prefer doing all my own stuff, so we'll see over time I guess.

Re: Markeb01 Build Thread

Cool deal, its your truck\money etc so I'm not about to tell you not to do something to your own stuff lol. I just love these trucks as a stepside and those rear fenders are one of the features that kinda pulled me to them from the square bodies I always had before. I do hate the small openings though and since I'm more of a lifted 4x4 guy they are even worse for tire fitment.

Re: Markeb01 Build Thread

So I hopped in the truck yesterday to go for a ride, and it wouldn't crank or start. I flipped the electrical disconnect switch back and forth, and it was dead as dead. So I got out the electrical tester, set it to 20V, and touched the battery posts. It registered .18V. So I waited for the wife to get home with the Honda, did the same test and it showed 16+ volts. I checked the truck battery again, and it still showed .18V. I also checked the electrical disconnect and everything was tight and working fine. It was time for another battery, as this one was over 6 years old. Plopped the new one in tonight, gave it a crank and wow the truck jumped to life like I just installed a new engine again!

I also discovered by "disc brake" pad fell off the pedal mechanism, so this time I glued it back on with black urethane adhesive. That should keep it on there from now on!
