Didn't get much time in today only about 1.5 hrs. JoAnne had other plans for me today but I did get some primer on the raw metal and laid out a game plan for the next few days which includes another trip to Loma Linda tomorrow. you can see where I repaired the wheel opening and some of the primer, anyway it looks like I'll have to remove the fender to repair the lower inner support and while I'm there I may as well fix the floor on that side too. The cowl extension needs the old antenna hole filled and the rust handled. That should do it for this week.
Well I got some work done yesterday and today and I'm pretty happy with the things turned out, I got the fender straightened out the holes soldered up and ready for the finishing touches. I've moved back to the door and the cowl extension. When I finish those I'll be ready for primer. The last picture shows what I started with and the others show where I left off yesterday, I'll get more tomorrow and post them.
No work on the truck of late due to dental apointments and trips to Loma Linda and now prepairing for rain (rummer has it) and another dential apointment tomorrow. I entend to finish the front fender tommorow and provide more pictures too.
Well crap I got the turn signals and the horne installed and whel I installed the seering wheel the horne shorted out and somthing went haywire with the turn signals and I lost a brake light. Sooo today I broke it all down and started over, things like this happen when you have to make parts using nothing but a SWAG, any way the signals worke now and as soon as I can get around the short in the horne that will work too. The seering wheel is after market and leaves little room for the horn mechanisem, more parts will have to modified.
