Finally got'er done. Looks good should after all the work. Garage Squad, de uno hombre did the job.
One thing I got to do is get a better drying system for the air compressor. Blowing to much water for the one Im using, to small for the 12.5 cuft of air.
For the last month I be removing paint with the citris paintremover in a one footby one foot sections.
Lots of work but I can only do it this way with my shoulder pain (hurt myself doing yardwork trimming tree branches). But its getting done slow but shure. I hope to have this cleaned up by Sun so I can primer.
I saw a fella on this form that made metal cover for the cowl vent on his truck. A lot of welding. Not my strong suit, so I welded some strips of metal on the cowl vent and will bolt the cover to them. Had a heck of a time trying to figure out how the rubber gasket went on. Dennis Carpenter parts guys had a picture and a blurb on how to put it in place. JOB DONE Now I can start filling holes in the fire wall.
Added angle iron edges to ends of the wood. The metal strips are short on the ends so had to fill gaps.
Im working on my small soda blaster converting to blowing sand. Get that working and I can finish removing paint off the cab down to bare metal.
