Got a new toy for my birthday - a sheet metal shear. It made quick work of cutting some small gussets for the ends of the ceiling ribs.

Finished the driver's side A pillar today. Does it look like 30 hours of labor? It's a good thing I work for beer. For grins, I got my sons to help me stick the Del Ray roof on top of the cab for a photo.

Moving on to the driver side A-pillar, I worked on hammering the edge to meet the windshield frame.

I've taken a couple of days off from work around the Labor Day holiday, so today I concentrated on the S10. I've been procrastinating working on the exterior A-pillars because I feel I'm at the limit of my ability. I've waited for a few weeks, but no one's knocked on my door volunteering to get me over the hump, so today I dove into the work. The passenger side A-pillar was done a while back and had a big dip where the new metal met the old. I cut more of the old metal out and replaced it There's still a slight dip, but it's not as pronounced as before.

Bent some 1/2 inch square tubing for the ceiling ribs using a jig made from a piece of oak cut in the shape of the 58 Del Ray roof. No heat - just muscle. The five pieces came out relatively uniform. Spaced them out every 9 inches across the Malibu door frame. Tacked the front-most ribs to the inner windshield flange.
