Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Clamped my piece to the cab and hammered a bit more until I was happy with the Fitment.

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Took it to my Harbor Freight shrink and stretcher set and carefully made adjustments until I felt it was right.

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

I have to admit that I surprised myself. Feels good to accomplish this without having the fancy expensive tools. Did it just like my old man taught me... I was really afraid to tackle these patches...but where there is a will, there is a way...

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Looks like a solid repair. Hopefully when I take my glass out of the cab I don't find the same educational "gems." haha
