idrivejunk Oh, for crying out loud.



Trying to sound angry but look at all that blue and green. Mike caught me trying the doors. Said they open and close the same no matter how its sitting.

He is right. I found the door operation to be fine on the forklift. Mud work is all Footloose come tomorrow, so I hear. He has his plan in his head. Its fun watching the artists do their art on the blank canvas I provide.





By the way, that body is heavy. Not top heavy but also not handled as easily as a stocker.

idrivejunk Fair game then. No way to shoo you away til yer done. Eyeball dogpile on aisle F1, where shelves are always full. Of it.

Pugsy, thanks. This side gave it's pristine-ness so that the other side may end up looking purposefully done. Thats her side, y'know?

Started on the driver's side though because if history bears true, whatever first side I do gets the TLC. Second side gets mirrored parts and hey they better fit mindset.

Astute observers may notice that even with the Purina logo look I have going on that pocket, I felt it prudent to move the end of that big double step area rearward to the first bolt or so. So there will perhaps be less stunt work required in building a trim panel.

At this rate, don't expect much planishing in that area. Its a slow go, I'd rather have pockets all firmed up and door back clicking shut with gap. And be on to the next thing. I was eyeballing the shaggy remnants of all the A pillar bracing and thinking: Sorry, bracing. Your prognisis is discouraging and your days are numbered. Rusty junk just clashes so much with all freshy fresh!

John long Can't move along until we are done looking. You left it out and unprotected so we are taking advantage of the opportunity.

idrivejunk The post will come out for finishing but really all I have done is establish the visible portion-



If I want adjustment in all directions, I gotta kinda bullseye these pockets. Before-

Thanks. Yep.

Had to split the post up a ways to push the roof / cowl seam out at the back to get outside gap and drip rail clearance.





Took less than an hour to toss in a latch and striker.

Those were my afterthought. Gary may have liked then a little, asked what it looks like without the center vertical "tooth". Customer said "I like the bumper." No input on the hood. He had a pro rendering done with the 56 grille most recently. The truck in the pic I used doesn't have stock turn signals, I failed to put those on in the edit but 51 and 6 are same there.

Throw out the black and white one except for the bumper. Throw out the green one, no turn signals and the bumper doesn't look chrome.

If I can gather one fact here, its that you two like the flat hood front. Is that correct?

Attempts to do right continue. Hinges are getting closer to being centered in pockets, gap is getting closer to what it was on attempt #1 but now theres access to both hinge pins. Stock hinge locations are both invalid for this type hinge.

The 56 grill is a keeper.
