02-26-2013 03:54 PM Cab rebuld cont.(Rust)
The front lower cowl was rusted ob both sides. I cut a small piece of scrap from the leftover door panel. After cutting a curve to copy the curve on the cab I started to work the bend with a crescent wrench and then to my shrinker then back to the crescent wrench then shrinker and so on until I was satisfied with the shape of the patch. I then took some time to cut and fit the patch into the cab.

Driverís door had some rust along the lower edge. I got a door skin online but it didnít fit right up at the lower bead. So I cut it down and worked it in at the lower hinge. I cut a curve on a piece of 2x4 to back up the metal when I welded it. I used some Rust-Oleum rusty metal primer and flooded the back side of the seam to allow it to flow into all the nooks and cranes to help prevent water from getting in

Now duplicate all of this to the other door and I think that I might be ready to weld in the steel front door jams.

With the power doors I needed to install the door poppers.

How I installed the door latch handle adapter things. In the middle of the door is a window regulator/door latch mount plate. I mounted the handle adapter to the back side of the plate. I took a piece of scrap metal drilled a hole in one end and cut a slot on the other this will connect to the bear claw. The slot is there to keep the door handles from moving when the actuators are energized. The last photo shows what this looks like from inside the door.
