    Started today epoxy sealing safari frames. Paint tomorrow.  518B3743-EB06-441F-9D13-B143F6B13321

    Worked my way around the cab, wet sanding with 3000 grit to take off the the massive amount of surface grime, in the visible areas. 2431666A-F398-43F3-B832-2095647CB97746CB06F8-D8E7-4938-8F0B-2C67AE254DF2AC8BBC09-275D-4614-A788-364978CDF668

    Done sanding. Starting to work my way back around buffing. EC9F525E-DC85-4B00-9881-931BB25E9D2FABCA3BD6-3DC3-4180-8023-91FE6A0831B3

    We will build it if it comes.

    Would you like the roof buffed out also Buddy?BC128F43-B231-4DFF-87D0-02FC0899A498

    what do you think? Looks a little funny now doesn’t it?

    I agree. I’ll get’r buffed up.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Awesome, thank you!

     

    Ryan, I’m not sure what KCW uses, but I buy all my rivet setting and aircraft sheet-metal related tools from a place called The Yardstore. Google it. They sell new and used equipment from the airframe industry at really good prices. An invaluable resource for me.

    I was thinking the same (cupped) as far as those solid rivets were concerned then a tapered style rivet set for setting the vent wing rivet. I got a couple extra of each type so I can experiment.

     

    Nothing too fancy here.. The cupped end works nice for forming the solid aluminum rivets used on the vent wing latches.

    These are some nice parts! From a low mile 67 double cab that Buddy has.
