Tried to weld on the roof patch today, and ran out of O2 again... I need another bottle, but i need a carport worse...

So, i framed in the new window and such like, and patched the recess for the door handle and started to bondo.

The other side same story...The jacks are lifting the body so as to allow fitting the new rear body mounts..

Hack to size, bash to shape, grind to fit and bondo to hide..

I think i need to find some van running boards to tack on where the rocker panels were..

Only a little time tonight due to a thunderstorm, so all i could do was to cut out some of the old cab parts to open up the new interior.. 100% humidity, 90 degees and working with a cutting torch... inside a box.... whew..

This is the last of the big pieces of body work... Had an idea to use the other side vent window as a style accent to make the vent look better.. window rolls down and the vent works.. I wanted to have a window here to eliminate that blind spot...Door is super ugly, but it opens and closes.

The orange piece on the roof is half the tailgate from the Falcon that i replaced... The curvature is pretty close, close enough to work...

Now it's weld and grind and bash and fit and bondo...one month to go... the tension mounts..Or is that body mounts?

Closed in the left side window...Got the tank home, that's picture #2, and started thinking about where to mount the tank, spare and tail lights... I think the lights want to be alongside the window..

07-10-2006 06:20 PM More like an (ugly) truck
Had a few moments and stuck on the fender and the cowl piece... I remember once working on a Christmas tree farm, and we spent a lunch hour trying to find a non-damaged component on their farm truck... This one is as bad... Except for the glass...

I know all this stuff will have to come off, but perhaps it will not fall off on it's own.. And i will have to make some thing for a rocker panel... Least of my worries
