I needed to cut the inner door garnish moldings due to the chop and as the Chevy pieces just square off instead of following the nice lines of the outside I decided to fix that. I added pieces to them and molded them in to follow the curve of the outside. You can sortof see them in the shots of the dash I will be posting.
I also added a molding to the cowl bottom to reflect the accent line at the back of door/cab bottom

I needed to have a fabbed piece to fix the inside door bottom where it was rusted through and used universal door skins from a body shop to replace the door bottoms

Here the many holes in the firewall are filled (some that I should have left) and the chop seam is filled and the cowl vent is welded in and filled

As with most all of these trucks the rockers under the doors and the door bottoms are rusted out. I added 2.5" exhaust tubing to the rockers as repairs to mimic the beltline revel and to add to the channeled effect. The lower cowl where the old fender crossed over was also repaired and filled.
