Gates are blasted and now Riley is helping with some metal work this morning 👍🏻VwfoolParticipantJune 9, 2021 at 12:02 pmPost count: 426
Those gates looked better before the blasting 😂. Like everything else on this truck, it’s always worse than it originally appearsJohn JonesModeratorJune 17, 2021 at 7:05 amPost count: 7863
The gates are pretty rusty on the bottoms…. but hey… good news… you brought us like 11 fucking gates to choose from…. 😎
Dude… the center section top hat, outrigger jack point shit looks tits!!! GREAT JOB Pat… he has to hand fit all the parts connecting to the frame…. 😎Pat KModeratorJune 17, 2021 at 7:24 amPost count: 2000
We back!!!! Sorry for the interruption. Time to catch up….
Riley started prepping for new metal last week. Started with the pass corner on Wednesday then rear fender well front closing panels on Friday.
I fit the pass closing panel Friday then jumped back into it on Monday.
After Riley dressed welds on the closing panel repair I knocked out the little tiny, itty bitty, 14 1/4” pass inner rocker.
Lower pass bulkhead section repair required a fair bit of shrinking to get the panel to stop oil canning.
Center bulkhead repair fabed and fit.
Front top hat fit went along with the bulkhead repairs. Finished Monday fitting the driver side bulkhead repair section and started burning it in.
We will build it if it comes.BBWBParticipantJune 17, 2021 at 10:33 amPost count: 1050
Looks good guys. Going to in paint before you know it.

Damn! Nearly there! At least bodywork should be brief!

Tuesday…Started with the driver side inner rocker.
Burned in the front top hat then moved onto driver side outrigger and jack point. Rear lip of outrigger had to shortened a bit due to frame mods.
The center section vertical rear lips had to be lengthened.
Burned in the center section and fit the pass outrigger to finish out the day.
We will build it if it comes.VwfoolParticipantJune 17, 2021 at 1:13 pmPost count: 426
Sweet! You are killing it Pat. Thanks for the updates. With the site down I was going through withdrawals.Pat KModeratorJune 17, 2021 at 5:28 pmPost count: 2000
Wednesday…burned in the pass side outrigger and jack point. Riley has been following me taking care of the grinding.
Pass rear fender well area required a good bit of attention. Small patches for the inner side wall and the engine tray/batt tray area.
There were a few pin holes to weld up also.
Fit the batt tray and mud flap.
Fabed a section for the bottom of the wheel well.
We will build it if it comes.Pat KModeratorJune 17, 2021 at 5:32 pmPost count: 2000
Wednesday cont… Burned in the batt tray and wheel well section.
Finished the day getting the primary fit done on the lower corner section.
We will build it if it comes.VwfoolParticipantJune 17, 2021 at 11:29 pmPost count: 426
