Gonna be a race truck after this. Super lightweight compared to what it used to be haha!mdubgParticipantNovember 3, 2018 at 7:23 amPost count: 294
When I did some exploratory work on that patch on the drivers side long panel, the filler was 3/4 of an inch deep. That previous patch was sloppy work, but the filler was overkill.Pat KKeymasterNovember 3, 2018 at 12:25 pmPost count: 1317
Just finished stripping the shell. Still need to pull the cargo door, and a few other small bits, before we roll it into the blast booth Monday morning.
We will build it if it comes.mdubgParticipantNovember 3, 2018 at 2:05 pmPost count: 294
Nice work Pat! From the pics, it looks pretty good under all that paint and fill. How’s it look up close?WillyModeratorNovember 4, 2018 at 9:52 amPost count: 1071
It’s not too bad!
Funny that the lights look like they the later style, because a 1960 would have the lower small lights. I wonder if the corners are from a different truck… 🤔
Looks like something maybe kissed it over by the side door. 😙
Some other little areas I saw…mdubgParticipantNovember 4, 2018 at 12:10 pmPost count: 294
Will, thanks for the close ups! I had no idea that there were a bunch of patches on the bus. Looks ok, few spots to cut out, but lots of good metal.
From looking at the inside of the rear corners, I knew the they were off a later truck, because they had the larger tail lights with the holes welded up. It wasn’t until I dropped it off that Franz pointed out that the current hole location might be a bit high for a ’60.mdubgParticipantNovember 4, 2018 at 1:29 pmPost count: 294
Watching all the work on my DC, got me jonesing (no pun intended) to turn a wrench. Started a bike project. I decided to run all the lines and cables down the handlebars of my Harley. I’m adding 14″ apes with chrome controls. I don’t want any external lines, so I’m putting on an internal throttle and a hydraulic clutch.
So far, the hydraulic clutch is installed, not yet plumbed.
Pulled the tank to get access to the wires and throttle cable. Once I get the bars delivered, I can measure how much I need to extend everything.John JonesKeymasterNovember 4, 2018 at 6:31 pmPost count: 6484
Cool Mike!!! I like Harley’s… But have not spent nearly enough time on them yet.. Hopefully in years to come!!!!
A few of the problem area’s.. After blasting.. or maybe part way through, I am going to order your metal and New Gates from Gerson… 😎
For a 1960…. I think your double cab is pretty damn nice!!!!! 😎John JonesKeymasterNovember 4, 2018 at 6:33 pmPost count: 6484
and a couple pictures I found on the camera from friday…. 😎 Bondo Angel…. Your truck was very very thick with material… 😎Pat KKeymasterNovember 5, 2018 at 12:48 pmPost count: 1317
Last of the bits pulled from the shell.
Chris started stripping the front floor. Looks like it was rusty and they buried it in bondo them rinolined over it.
Left and right sections will need replacement maybe the whole floor. We’ll see after blasting.
Driver door has some “repairs” done. Will need some more love again
We will build it if it comes.mdubgParticipantNovember 5, 2018 at 2:16 pmPost count: 294
I’m glad I brought my truck to the right shop! When you are done, I’ll know it was done right, with the pics to prove. No more cover-ups. Loving the updates!JWDIIParticipantNovember 5, 2018 at 2:46 pmPost count: 394

Best kind of advertising ever! Congrats JJ/KCW, and congrats to you Mike for a stunning DC in the making. I love watching the updates.PeteParticipantNovember 5, 2018 at 3:07 pmPost count: 886Pat KKeymasterNovember 6, 2018 at 8:15 amPost count: 1317
Chris started blasting yesterday on this. Looks like he’s working from the top down.
We will build it if it comes.mdubgParticipantNovember 6, 2018 at 6:25 pmPost count: 294
