Made a run out to picknpull this morning and got a couple different things. One was these Cadillac seat belt buckles for the tailgate latches just like on the Persh trucks website

Re: A 15 year old's project. Rusty 62 stepside

I also Did some more work on the t5 install. I went to picknpull today because I previously bought the wrong slip yoke. Instead of searching online and paying big bucks I just pulled a camaro driveshaft from the yard that was the same 2.5'' diameter as mine and cut off the front end so that when I get it shortened I can get them to put on the front portion from the camaro. Also when I go to buy ujoints I just have to tell them it's an 86 Camaro. I also pulled the license plate bracket from the camaro as well. It's on a hindge and has a spring that locks in the open and closed position. That how I'm going to fill the gas tank.

Re: A 15 year old's project. Rusty 62 stepside

Then when I got back I worked on the portion of the inner rocker that goes between the cab support and the door pillar

Re: A 15 year old's project. Rusty 62 stepside

Another busy day with great results. I drilled the holes and welded in the panel that covers the cab support and goes under the pillar

And then I welded and bolted in the lower door pillar section that I made. All the welds still need to be ground down.

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!

Oh and I also hung the door and it looks like I did my measurements correctly as the door fits pretty nicely
