Re: Daddyjeep Hauler - 85 K30 crew cab short bed

Nice work on the scoop! That metal sure has a mind of it's own once you start placing tacks. It can be a real aggravation. But, you are doing nice work of it.

Re: Daddyjeep Hauler - 85 K30 crew cab short bed

I filled in the corners last night. It took a little finesse, but it wasn't too bad. I am pretty happy with how this is coming out.

Re: Daddyjeep Hauler - 85 K30 crew cab short bed

Thanks, I learn new skills just about every time I walk into the shop. The most important part is that I am not scared to go for it. When I was younger there were a lot of projects that I didn't take on because I didn't know how. Now, I just dive in and see what happens.

Tunnel ram huh???

Re: Daddyjeep Hauler - 85 K30 crew cab short bed

I will have some kind of mesh. It will be finer than the piece in the pic and recessed about an inch into the opening.

Re: Daddyjeep Hauler - 85 K30 crew cab short bed

Since I didn't do too well at a pool tournament this weekend I ended up getting a little time in the shop. I started the other side of the hood.

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

I should get the other side panel in and hopefully the corners tonight.

Re: Daddyjeep Hauler - 85 K30 crew cab short bed

Thanks Guys.

Almost done with the basic shape of things then I just need to place a couple thousand tacks.

[IMG][/IMG]

I need to swing by my steel supplier and see what I can find for expanded metal. I will be using that for the front intake, the rear side cowl vents and probably the grill.

Got kind of a Mad Max vibe to it along with an old WW2 era plane look. That's without paint, regardless, looks awesome!

I love this build and the concept behind it. Keep up the good work! When you decide to ditch that front bumper, I would be interested in buying it off you.

I'll trade you the bumper for those pretty green fenders you have.

I am building a bumper, so we can work something out.

Re: Daddyjeep Hauler - 85 K30 crew cab short bed

I got all of the main structure done. Next is building the frames for the screens in the front inlet and the rear vents. I need to go over to a buddies and use his break for that. Of course I just found out my buddy had a hatchet incident at a scouting event today. Hopefully he is up to me coming over tomorrow.

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

I started cleaning up the back edge. I used some pieces from the donor hood and some generic body repair panels to get the folded edge.

Looks real good. Is the gmt400 in the background another project?

That belongs to a buddy of mine. Not really a project, just doing some repairs.

I hear you there. I'm dreading placing those tacks more than grinding them. i did finish welding and grinding one little section tonight. I welded the mounting points for the intake grill.

[IMG][/IMG]

I need to get the inside with a dremel or die grinder.

Re: Daddyjeep Hauler - 85 K30 crew cab short bed

I actually started working on my truck again. Nothing too exciting is getting done, but things are getting done. I finished spraying the floor with undercoating and got back to work on the bodywork on the rockers and corners. This area doesn't have to be perfect as I will be coating the bottom six or so inches of the truck with bed liner. Since I had to patch a couple areas on the side cowl area (whatever that is called) I shot some flat white paint I had laying around on it. I really like how the flat white shows the bends and shadows.

Re: Daddyjeep Hauler - 85 K30 crew cab short bed

I found some smaller expanded metal and threw together a screen for the intake. I'm not sure if I like the expanded metal or not, but it will work.
