Got the front axle cross member and upper shock mounts welded in place.Still need to box the frame and build a front frame extention to mount the radiator.
Also got the wish bone mount,front cab mount,and exhaust pass thru welded in.Again,everthing still needs boxed in.

05-23-2009 09:27 PM Floor bracing...
Started rebuilding the floor.The previous owner had built a floor out of heavy gauge galvanized sheet metal,with no cross supports.I had removed most of it when I put the cab on the new chassis,but only had a few cross supports in,just enough to hold the cab on the frame.I still have more to install,but this is where I ended up tonight.

05-22-2009 09:36 PM Fill or not to fill......
Im thinking about building some engine side panels.I think somthing looks like its missing behind the front wheels with just the hood on.I thought about adding some t-bucket type headers but they would interfer with the wish bones and kinda just be "hanging out" in the open.I think it would be different if I had a real cool hemi or somthing under the hood to show off.

05-22-2009 09:28 PM Whole lot of grinding....
Spent almost 6 hours welding and grinding the cab extension.Its not perfect,but should work out pretty good with a little hammer and dolly work and some filler.Im pretty happy with the over all shape of the roof that I ended up with.
