Re: 1966 C10 LB 2wd 283 4spd build

Just about to weld the rear of cab outer flange. The original had an upside down 5 stamped on it plus an upside down cross. Has anyone else seen something similar? I am deciding whether or not to duplicate this by stamping it on the new piece.

I will be using copper backing plates held on by cleco in order to make welding easier and keep things lined up.

Have finished the rear flange of the cab by bead rolling the shape of the patch panels, welding new metal onto the inside rear floor, using Cleco fasteners to hold copper backing behind the welds, then plug welding the flange (copper rich weld-through primer used in the plug welded flange).

Decided to replace the inner/outer, firewall/kick panel edges. Used bending brake then shrinker/stretcher to form the bend.
