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.
Glued small strips to the outer edges of the end boards and routed for fit. Some of the neighbors came over for breakfast Sat morning. We have some rose bushes out back there and the deer just love um. They also empty out the bird feeders.
Got all the boards laid out ok, have issues with the sides not being square. Going to have to glue some strips to the end boards and then route them down to size for a nice even fit with no gaps. More green paint off the firewall. progress slow but shure. The TV raised up on the wall is great.
My Son came over to help on the truck and brought a 42inch TV for the shop. We installed a wall mount
and put her up. Had to set up the router to expand the grooves out a 1/16 inch on the boards. The first
try was a bit short. After placing a couple of boards with the strips the holes became covered up for the next board. Routing them with the new dimension did the job, boards fit just fine. Cab doesnt look any different, but there is more paint off and I wire brushed the firewall. Got a lots of holes to fill. Cab on rollers so I can move it around the shop. See the snow on us again, missed last year got a bunch the year before.
