Re: project orange crush 76 crewcab build

Haven't done much too the truck lately it's monsoon season so every time I wanna work on it it wants to rain. I got the driverside pretty much all finished up. Took the cowl panels too work and stripped them to bare metal and epoxy primed them. Cut out a filler panel for the driver side kick panel vent hole and I filled in the hole in the trans tunnel cover. Hopefully I'll get started on the pass side floor soon.

Re: project orange crush 76 crewcab build

The inner rocker was in better shape than the driverside so I didn't need to replace the whole thing just a section of it.

Re: project orange crush 76 crewcab build

This pass side floor pan didn't fit well at all. Took allot of massaging to get it flat against the supports and close enough to weld.

Re: project orange crush 76 crewcab build

Here's a parts blazer that Ive had and finally got it cut up and have been playing around with some yard art idea's. Thinking this would look cool mounted against my wall or maybe even incorporate it into my gate not sure what the end goal is just yet but when the weather cools down I'll get back too it.

Re: project orange crush 76 crewcab build

Got the rocker and cowl welded up. Ground down all the welds and got some primer on everything. Rehung the door with the rebuilt hinges and got it all mocked up for now. Still need to finish the driverside cowl then I'll get that side in primer and start bodyworking the firewall and rockers

Re: project orange crush 76 crewcab build

Mocked up the fender for the first time in over a year kinda nice to see it looking like a whole truck again. Also picked up a door for the yard art project.

Re: project orange crush 76 crewcab build

That is a good find for a flip. A little work and you should make a nice profit.

Re: project orange crush 76 crewcab build

Very nice work on your crew cab, and nice score on the 75! That will make a nice truck with a little bit of work. Like daddyjeep said, it should yield a very nice profit!

Re: project orange crush 76 crewcab build

Bodyworked my driverside fender. It's ready for primer and block sanding rounds now. My pass side fender needs some rust repair and is in rough shape overall still unsure if I should put the time into this one of find a better replacement

Re: project orange crush 76 crewcab build

Looking nice! I'm not sure on the fender. If you can find a nicer one close to you then getting a different one would work. But my luck you can't find any near me so I'd spend the time and fix it. Haha
