idrivejunk I had spotted the caved in area but only the worst part, from the inside. That cab back panel is stretched to kingdom come. I did find less rust than expected across the middle of the bottom. I mentioned the speaker in kick panel thing and pretty much concluded that my panels can be cut like any OE panel. But if an answer comes soon enough about what goes there, a built in custom fit flush mount panel could be substituted. Fact to remember is that hinge pin access must remain so it won't be enclosed, by the body metal anyway. Speaker having to be removed for access is OK and a speaker frame mounted firmly won't compromise the structure.

Starting to look reminiscent of the A, under all the paint and filler... Hard to tell from the pic, but it appears the inside brace is wonky too.

I LOVE the emblem and pile of dust...

Can it be fancy and sloppy at the same time? I'd like for it to turn out looking somewhat premeditated. However...

Audio hadn't crossed my mind. Thanks for the prompt, there will be an inquiry. After all, its a regular cab pickup. I predict a level of audio that has one woof under the seat just so they don't miss out on anything in the songs. Nice head unit people but not jammer-outers.

The kicks were going in no matter how the steps and beads looked. They are just non-floppy supports with hand holes. With those screwed in, cab is stiff enough to remove my hokey arsed dash to pan supports but I'll have it apart again. Looking to remove cab or bed now and get new metal along the brown bottomed rear. Of the cab. Boss ordered a universal hood latch today for it.

No style or precision awards to be had there, just kick panels. Holes provide some access for lower hinge pin and behind the inner fender mount pad.

idrivejunk Getting started on these for the kick panel area-
