I finally feel comfortable with placing the 58 Del Ray roof on the S10. First, I marked the inside edge of the Malibu roof frame and the windshield frame. I marked a center line in the roof panel and measured to each side. I re-marked the sides and trimmed the edges, leaving an inch or so overlap. I rounded the cut of the back edge. Last, I cut the front edge. I think I'll use the 8 inch piece I cut from the back edge to make a windshield visor.

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.
