idrivejunk GM cars went to some alarmingly thin steel during the smog era. I noticed that on my ex 76 Camino. This is going to be a flashback to working on Japanese stuff.

Well, no wonder. Turn it around. It's backwards.

idrivejunk Now aren't you the clever one, David? A man needs clean spark. Yep

This afternoon I stuck the headliner back up that I had dropped down for PDR access. Couple hours there. '15 Tahoe LTZ.

Thats about all the pillar / jamb / brace welding over here. Gap remains about where I put it. Those "about"s should about cover that.

This might break the monotony a smidge, theres color in it -

Parking lot insurance dent, smog Nova-

Painter tackled that mud spot but then.. you know how painters are, constantly bellyaching about things not being damaged or weathered in a way that makes the work easiest for them.

They run crying to the boss and then, being a painter too, he sticks something in it and then they come a'runnin to the bodyman saying-

Oh look! Part of my blend panel got pulled off with my fingers or pried off with a screwdriver, aww. Can you save us?

Its great to be needed. That was all just a drama speech. Have answered to "Hey Painter!" myself and by no means do I mean any of that. 'Cept mebbe the fixing part. I do not mind it a'tall.

She, the Nova lady, has options but I predict a quick but solid overlapped patch on the trunk drop panel and a mostly triangular skin patch. All below the character line and avoiding wheel lip and house.

Other side has a much milder version with bubbles starting on the skin only. That won't get messed with but we will probably shoot the whole right side of the car

idrivejunk Been working on the cab back panel brace this morning. Getting it all back together on both ends and tacked in with the necessary tension between the pillars and it. Ready to weld the splices up. Pretty much nothing to look at for you.

idrivejunk Had to spend some day on a late model but am back cobbling something up I hope will hold-

Just an old truck. Front fenders didn't travel well. Other one about same, just a different spot. And these are thin .

idrivejunk FYI, this process of developing both sides is not unlike driving two cars home. Can't drive one very far before you need to park and walk awhile.

That was another long awaited shag trim. Fortunately, the length needed is short enough to not concern myself with the slight curve that exists.

Positioning will again be critical on the outer pieces. Been making matching right side pieces as I go. The thicker little stock triangle gussets will be reused. Now I am set to tie in the floor cross brace and it is part of that.

idrivejunk Anybody who ain't done it ain't done much fab.

Ditched the stick of left pillar tubing-

The short piece stays but becomes just a 14 ga 90 strip with angled part at top which will butt to the stepped side on the pillar. It will serve as the foot of the pillar.

More pieces to make. These are front faces for the bottom of the pillar. They will plug weld over that last piece-

Not much to show. Door gap adjusted out fine. Trying to dream up a vision of how everything ties together at bottom of pillars now.
