I was already over there and signed on.

We have a bead roller and electromagnetic brake at work, if you want to run up and use them...

Magnetic Sheet Metal Brake BB-4816M | Baileigh Industrial

When the page opens, click on the arrow under the picture and it is a video of what you can do. Pretty cool tool, but it doesn't work very well with anything heavier than 22 gauge. I hand made rocker panels for a couple 90's Buicks with it.

I am going thru boxes of parts to sell off the Buick stuff and get the truck stuff in the garage for use. I am having a ball getting into these parts. My five minutes turned into 2 hours.

I got out in the back yard and moved my frame and cab around to get ready to get it up on the cart I am making.



I got a butchered up frame in part of the deal on my frame with the Camaro clip. I cut that frame up to make a cart for the cab.



I am getting gitty, I can't say it any other way, I am so damn excited to get on this truck!

I am excited to see you getting started Brian.

I got my bead roller back tonight. The front rh body braces are now removed from the convert and I am ready build a set of them and repair the rust in the lower Cowl area.

This is all running through my head at night while I am supposed to be sleeping. Kinda cool to be so excited about something Huh?

You are going to have your hands full cutting curved glass. Do you have a good source?

When I was 17-18 I took a stock piece of glass and made a pattern out of plexiglass that someone gave me. I put the glass in my mom's oven (I miss you mom!) with the plexiglass laying in side it. I remember I put something laying on the bottom of the glass so the plexiglass wouldn't go all the way down as this would have created too deep of a curve. Anyway, it worked like a charm and those windows still looked good when I sold that cab in 1995. This picture was taken the day I installed them in 1977.



I am very excited to thinking about this truck. I have had the thought run thru my head about reproducing the exact truck I had in 1977 but I am afraid everyone would think I was a rat rodder. I was a rat rodder when rat rodding wasn't cool.

But anyway, I may have real glass made, I will be looking into the cost of that. OR, I may just try to perfect sand blasting tempered glass to cut it. I did an experiment a few years ago and it actually looked do-able. Cutting glass by sandblasting, Urban Myth?
