02-09-2014 01:46 PM Cab cont.
Sorry I have neglecting my duties of updating my Journal. Quite a few weeks ago I got my cab back from my painter. A buddy came over to help my set my cab. I went with a sling inside the cab in stead of my picker, as I did not want to scratch my door jams. It is finely looking like a truck.

12-30-2013 04:33 PM Rear fenders
I was having the same problem with my rear fenders. So I decided to make a fixture hold my rear fenders. I cut a couple of pieces of scrap plywood. I laid out the mount holes and drilled them to fit. I then attached the fenders to the plywood and marked the radius. I then cut the radius by cutting it an 1/8” inside the line. Since the plywood was T111 siding I added some scrap to stiffen the fixture. I then remounted the fenders and mounted it in my jaw horse. My wife thought that I would never use that jaw horse when she bought it. It turns out it is handier than she thought.

12-30-2013 04:31 PM Front fenders cont.
While I was trying to work on my front fenders they would keep moving and sliding around which made it hard to work on. I made these fixtures to hold my bed sides when I was working on them. While my bed is out to the painters and my cab is on jack stands I thought I would use my cab dolly to build a fixture to hold my front fenders to work on them. It is screwed together so that I can change it back when I’m done.

12-30-2013 04:28 PM Furnace fix
I had my furnace serviced the other day and we found that the box that transitions the fire box to the flue pipe was rusted out. I took some sheet steel and made a box to replace the old one. I’m glad that I bought those shrinker and stretcher you never know when you may need them.

The ends of the fenders where they mount to the running boards were all rusted out so I cut a piece of steel and shaped it to fit then welded it in place.
