I understand that. I think itís the luck of the draw. I had one cab corner that the door gap was so bad that I had to cut it out and buy another. A body guy told be that these aftermarket parts are a cast of a cast. So itís had to get the exactly right.

Re: 57 Truck build

Did a couple of things today. I cut down the tubs and welded them in. I cut them down to two inches instead of 3 1/2. This will allow me to keep the stock bed wood. I also installed the hidden latches. Now Iím going to fix the bed ends so the match up with the front panel and tailgate.

Re: 57 Truck build

Decided to weld in the holes from the chai patch on the tailgate today. Took a little time but I think it came out ok. I will put seam sealer all the way around the the tailgate before paint to give it a cleaner look. Here is a pick of my tailgate from my 62 with it all sealed around the inner edges.

Re: 57 Truck build

Short fab day today. All I got done is the drivers side step. Maybe next week I can finish the front bed rails and move the Right side bed rail up a little. Then the bed mods are done.

Re: 57 Truck build

Another short fab day. I cut the Altman latches and grafted the into the door panels. I did the passenger side but itís binding when Iím putting it back on. So I guess tomorrow Iíll figure it out. I had to move one of the mounting hole on the panel. Aftermarket doors are not tru to specs.

It doesnít I had to mod each aftermarket part I bought. I should have kept the originals and fixed them. But now the parts fit the truck.

Re: 57 Truck build

Did a little more work last weekend and today. I put epoxy on all my blasted parts. Today I moved the front fender seams so they lined up with the hood. I also moved the passenger fender gap and lowered the height to match the hood. I still have to move the front part of the fender because the hood is to high. I added rod to the drivers hood and cowel to get the lines better I still have to Finish Grind to make it smooth.
