Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

I remember a lot of the old commercials. "It's the Water and a lot more" was the jingle. Then they had the comercials about the Artesians. They would act like they were secretive little creachers that you could only catch a glimpse of once in a while. I know some other stuff about the Schmidt family (owners of the brewery) and state legislators too, but I won't go into that..
Anyway, more progress pics!

These pictures show the rear end of the panel getting closer to being done body worked and the parts are starting to go back on. I found it amazing how much work it took to get the NOS door to fit right. We found out that what I thought was original paint front fender had been worked quite a bit in the past. Must have been in an accident or something. They did great work fixing it, but this is the kind of stuff you find when you are restoring a truck. You will see more in the hood and right door in my next post.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

These two pictures are of the hood and right door. Both parts I had purchased years ago as original paint parts. The reproduction doors were not fitting very well back then so I chose to go original equipment. The hood only had one ding that I knew of when I purchased it and after media blasting, boy did I find out how wrong I was. The door I purchased from one of the board members here on this site. He was in Arizona and I bought it because it was strait and rust free. We were both wrong about the rust free part... Had to repair the lower hinge pocket and some of the surrounding metal. So much for that... Oh well, I don't blame the seller. I looked the door over carefully myself once it arrived here and didn't see any rust either. It only appeared after media blasting. This kind of stuff happens and all you can do is fix it. WES

I really love this build. HATE the taillight situation, but to each their own. Carry on!

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Wait until they are done. They will very closely resemble the fleetside truck taillights, just a little larger. There will be about a 1/4" wide bezels that will be copper plated just like the rest of the chrome. WES

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

All of the sudden my panels hood is oil canned!! Something smells bad here. I went to great lengths to be sure that I got an extremely nice hood for my Panel and now all the sudden it looks to be a pile of garbage!! Something has happened between the time I dropped off the hood and now. It is oil canned on both sides of the spine, and all the sudden it doesn't fit like it did. Not happy about it.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

We also have more door fitting problems... Granted I am trying to achieve near perfect body lines but what the heck. It was all fitted before it went to media blasting. WES

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Sorry, I'm not a bodywork guy at all. What does ''oil canned'' mean?
Also -- may be a trick of the light or camera angle -- but in an earlier pic of the hood it looked like there were 2 holes in the ridge, forward, like a PO had some big goofy hood ornament.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

No hood ornaments ever on this hood. It was as close to pristine as they get. Oil canned is what you get when the steel in a panel has been stretched. Pretty common to happen in doors and bedsides that have been dented then straitened. Makes the metal weak and unable to hold it shape with the slightest pressure applied. The term came from back in the day when oil was placed into rectangular cans and you would squeeze them to get the oil to come out faster. The sides of the can would pop as you pinched and released pressure on the can. WES

Thanks for the explanation. The only oil cans I remember were light gauge steel ended 1 Qt cans with cardboard/foil-lined tube bodies. Then came the plastic bottles.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Ok here is what I think of as oil canning. These old style oil cans worked by pushing the bottom of the can, it was sort of bowed (stretched) out a little. It clicked in and out when you pushed the bottom. Similar to this clicker toy

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Those too CG. Well another bit of bad news is my NOS hood hinges are bent now too. So after I found another hood it can't even be put on. So I decided to purchase new custom billet aluminum hood hinges. They are supposed to be a better hinge because they are more rigid than the stock hinges. So hopefully that will take all hood alignment problems out of the picture. They cost me over $600.00 so they better be good..
