I guess blue is out for me, and to think I had the paint given to me for free.

Well truth be told I couldn’t make up my mind. This helps me narrow it down to red and black or red and white. Kinda was hoping I’d have an excuse to use my red interior pieces I have

I think red and white would be awesome especially if you have some red interior parts. I’ve never seen a red/white 4 door

More rust repair work up front. Got all cut out and ended up being worse than I originally thought but still no big deal.. got a floor patch in along with new front support, lower kick panel patch and the lower section of the A piller..Also got the rocker installed. Not 100% pleased with aftermarket rocker fitment but got it best I could. Moved onto the 4th door area and modified 2 drivers side rockers becuse I had to form the front part to accept the new B pillar. Tried to keep it as factory looking in that area as possible and I’m happy with the result. Just have to do a rocker backing piece yet and the drivers side is about done..

Spent the Christmas vacation in the garage but took a break from cab floor repairs.. Since I’m installing bucket seats and console in this truck I decided that I didn’t want my passenger seat solid mounted like a single cab truck but instead I’ll solid mount the rear bench seat. So I took some junkyard find 1972 k5 drivers side seat tracks and cut them apart. Grinding rivets off the seat mount pedestals. Welded holes shut in the slide rail. Next I had to reverse everything to the opposite side on the latch rail piece. Had to bend up a piece of 12 ga. steel for the angle. Where the adjuster lever connects. I made a few errors along the way but that’s metal work. Grinder fixed that. My tracks were missing the engagement latch piece that goes thru the tracks and latches in the notches so I had to get a set out of bench seat tracks. Surprisingly they are different so I again had to weld them up and regrind the notches..lastly was the engagement lever. I think I cut it 5 times and flipped stuff heated and bent the handle part. That’s was the hardest bit of it all. Also welded a new foot on the one as it was rotted away. After 15 hours I have passenger side adjustable bucket seat tracks mirrored of the drivers side. Next it to get mounted to floor with necessary reinforcement plates..

Finished up the last rocker and backing plate on the passenger side. Now the cab is almost completed gotta tidy some things up yet with some extra holes. Got the trans tunnel cut out as well so it’s officially 4wd! Ordered all the trim for this build as well so now it’s time to start hanging sheet metal so I can get the trim layer out.

Picked up some goodies this past weekend for the ole girl. Had the truck rolled outside for the first time in 2021. Working on mock up now. Moved the engine crossmember foreward 2”. Also replaced the front most crossmember as mine was bent.. set the big block in with new poly mounts and fits snug as a rug.

Got the transmission and transfer case bolted up under as well so I could relocate the trans crossmember. Went ahead and installed a skid plate I made off an original one. Installed the secondary crossmember for that as well. Think I’m gonna stick two more crossmembers back the frame where my splice and addition is..

Picked up all the sheet metal for my shortbed. With so much metal work involved with this crew cab conversion I kinda burnt myself out in that department so I went ahead with aftermarket bed parts. So far with minimal altercations it seems to be fitting up decent and there is zero rust to fix which makes me happy.
