10-22-2014 06:05 PM Replacing rust
The cab floor was rusted out right where the hold down bolts got through. I cut out the rusted metal and going to replace with 1/8 in. plate. I made a end cap for the bottom of the door sill.

10-09-2014 07:43 PM Brake lines done
When I was at the bone yard i took some brakets off a Ford Explorer for the front brake lines. At the time they looked as I might be able to use-um. That I did. I first tried to weld them on the frame, but my little wire welder didnt have enough poop. So I drilled holes and taped um for a #10 screw. Did good. I also drilled and taped the holes for the clips to hold the lines to the frame. I used a stainless braket kit from Speedway. Bad news from my sand blaster guy, he been in the hospital for a spell, lost 60lbs, looks it, so I guess thats why he handt been answering the phone. We talked for a while and he said he could do the cab in a couple of weeks. His prices doubled, I guess he got some Med. bills. Ill give him a go after a while and pay his price, wish I could give him more, he is a good ol boy. On that lact Pic I went over those welds another time and got a lot better coverage.

I made up a cardboard template of the area to be recovered. It worked out ok. Flip it over and it worked for the other side as well.

Finally got to a place where I can start work on the cab. I've got maybe a month before it gets cold, so I better get going and get this truck painted.

06-19-2014 10:17 PM Back on Fenders
Well I tried to get this done, but it turns out the Grand kids end up on the All-Star Baseball team and have more games for us to watch. Anyhow I bought some MP-200 Direct-to Metal primer with activator. The application went ok. After these pictures I sanded all the fenders and a lot of the small dings and dents went away. There still some small ones left that I'll have to get after probably grind off and fill? I found that you must clean the spray guy right when your done because that primer sets up pretty fast. And it did sand very easy as advertised.
