Too bad you're not close......I'd blast the whole truck for $600!

I wish you were closer as well. Some local places quoted me $400-$500 just to blast the bed floor, so you can see why I find the $600 for the 3 parts a good deal.

Unfortunately, I don't have the time, patience, or proper tools to blast everything myself.

Re: Trying to make Junky perhaps just a little bit Funky...

Went for a ride with a local motorcycle club, so I did not get to move sheet rock today. What I thought would be a 2-3 hour ride lasted from 9am - 4pm.

Worked on the D/S cab corner when I got home Got the corner welded to the floor. The way this looks, Bondo will soon be my best friend.



Here is the other side of the weld. Had to make sure it welded both pieces. Next I have 18 holes to weld in the center of the cab. Then the real fun begins when I try to get the door pillar done this year.

Didn't know you rode bikes, always good for the soul. Not like I'm not bondo dependent myself!

Right, but with you bondo is a touch up to mask imperfections, with me it's a required necessity to hide the fact that I have no idea what I am doing.

Re: Trying to make Junky perhaps just a little bit Funky...

Did a little bit of work today. Decided to take another look at the D/S door pillar.

I think a part of me is afraid to finish plug welding the back of the cab to the floor, because I feel like that's the point of no return. It would be very difficult to undo it. Maybe I should see a shrink?

Glad I double..., triple..., lost count of how many times I have checked the door pillar and it's a good thing I did. I had a feeling I was off a bit and I was right. Using the measurement of 7.5 inches from the top mount hole to the center of the fender mount hole, I was off by about a 1/2 inch.

I cut a piece of one of my leftover door pillars (I've only ordered about 4 of them so far), and used it to make a spacer and tack welded it in place.

Next I need to finish welding the cowl panel in place, drill holes for the mounting bolts on the door pillar and the hole for the lower door mount bolt, then I can mount the door pillar, hopefully for the last time.

Here's the gap and my spacer. I drew those white lines before I made the spacer to make sure I lined it up properly. Seems to be where I want it.


Tack welded in place, and then test fitted the pillar again. The white lines match up, so it should be good.
