Haha thanks man! Your right, I dont think I'd be happy with anything else.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Well I did it again guys. More splicing..... I think I might have to call this truck "Splice" soon. I hope all this splicing turns out alright in the end. Its starting to look a little ridiculous.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

You might as well just cut the cab in half and extend it 4" for more room while you're at it.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Metal work is looking great man. Are you waiting to have all the metal work done before spraying your primer?

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Well its not alot of progress but I have one of the splices welded up and ground down. I dont have any play by play pictures, just the finished one. I mean it is probably a good thing, you guys must be sick of seeing the same thing over and over. Also happy new year to all!

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Well it seems that every time I have a day set to get out into the shop, it just doesn't work out. So progress has been slow for sure but I promise there is a reason. Life is going to change come May so I have really been busy in the house getting the rest of the renovations done in the bedrooms. I went a little over the top painting in the baby's room but it turned out awesome! I have saturday set aside though so I can get back on track. If all goes to plan, the passenger rocker will finally be welded in by the end of the day.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Well I should have known by now. I was out in the shop most of the day but did not make it as far as I hoped due to another issue. I noticed that the floor just up from the inner rocker had a 1/4" bow when compared to the top lip of the rocker. I went back and forth on wether it would be a real problem or not and in the end I decided that I would be pretty choked if I had it all done and you could see a hump on the sill plate. So out came the grinder and another Splice was made. It seems that name is going to stick. So after all evening of welding and grinding, the inner rocker is ready to accept the outer!

Thanks man! I just finished up baseboards in the room today. Now we just have to fill it up with furniture. As for the truck, the rocker should be installed Wednesday evening.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Well would you look at that. I managed to sneak out in the shop last night and finish the prep on the rocker. I didn't like the way they made the front of the rocker with the lapped metal and large hole which is extremely in accessible so I cut that all up and welded it in nice and flush. The only thing left to do before I weld the rocker in is spray the weld through and hang the door for proper alignment. I plan to have it done tonight!

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

No progress on the truck to report but I have been cleaning my shop. I got myself a bolt bin which will be nice. Now I won't have to spend half my evenings looking for bolts and such. I also got a bunch of stuff off the floor by building a recycling/garbage center. That should greatly improve cleanup time in the future. I also found myself a computer monitor that I have hooked up as a small TV in there now. I am still doing a major deep clean at the moment so probably won't have any progress for another week or so but it sure feels good to have a clean shop.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Hey right on man! I wasn't aware that they can be flipped. No clue how though. I have my bolt bin all filled up now. Just about done with the deep clean. Just the toolbox left to sort out now.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Update on passenger side rocker. I ground down all my plug welds and the difficult to grind seam at the back edge tonight. I also started to weld the door seam the rest of the way. Couple more evenings on this side and I should be able to jump over and start the driver side rust repair.
