97ss; i found these pics in my archives:
raw hole


cleanup around the area


cut patch. very simple shape. i did conture it some, but even a flat patch this size would have minimal filler over it.


finish weld. i use flux core wire so all my welds need grinding and some filler


you can see i had the frame done, except under the cab.
the date on these pics is march 2002. you've come a long way baby...

Unique Design

Hey Ogre, It came out real cool, definitely unique. Did you use welting on the fenders? Its kind of hard to tell in the photos. I need to get an OEM assembly manual to determine all the welting, weather striping, gaskets, etc. that my truck is missing. Cool build Man. Nolan

I haven't read everything here yet and I know this is a old topic but that price is to funny. You can go to Home Depot and buy them for less than 20 bucks a set. Chrome,Brass or Stainless They bolt on with some screws and drill a small hole WALLA your done.
