    Those gates looked better before the blasting 😂. Like everything else on this truck, it’s always worse than it originally appears

    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.

    A281C0FE-F74D-4498-9D79-13D073EE0450 Gates are blasted and now Riley is helping with some metal work this morning 👍🏻

    I fit the pass closing panel Friday then jumped back into it on Monday.C2B3D24D-59B3-4F8E-B3E3-889807B1A498

    After Riley dressed welds on the closing panel repair I knocked out the little tiny, itty bitty, 14 1/4” pass inner rocker.C27D12A7-EA9D-4186-BA30-67CBAF516EF3E726FD3E-E7DC-4ED3-9E49-5CA42D9124F8

    Lower pass bulkhead section repair required a fair bit of shrinking to get the panel to stop oil canning.2CEC2027-47FF-434C-AC17-5AE4A62C6CFF22CAF807-BF0D-48D3-8422-0FF36186CDA4

    Center bulkhead repair fabed and fit.CC455362-7CBA-4F36-B152-A9E97A4B560A

    Front top hat fit went along with the bulkhead repairs. Finished Monday fitting the driver side bulkhead repair section and started burning it in. 451C0E81-A611-4336-80F5-A2208EB83AA92FD2A9DD-2F03-445F-8F7A-C935CDC3C8BB

    We will build it if it comes.

    Looks good guys. Going to in paint before you know it.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

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

    Tuesday…Started with the driver side inner rocker. A66D6D62-8AA7-46BB-9822-609FB406DE14

    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.A56C75F0-A569-4A19-9B45-0260AF8CBF03D6E471EE-5BD8-4907-9E2E-28F590E51014FA6A07E8-2ADA-4A7D-BAE6-ED13D641EC0C

    The center section vertical rear lips had to be lengthened. AA2A7A62-9A60-4823-884B-E7E760318A0F

    Burned in the center section and fit the pass outrigger to finish out the day.DCEC7E91-F7EE-4E89-A5CD-5B9753BBE60D14D1ACAD-F1A6-4034-814F-7EEF422749A52AC2EF1D-7E36-4C19-8E4E-9EB2A9E51661

    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.2578BC7E-A72B-4A70-84B0-D23A0F7463406D143EB5-96DE-49B6-8FB5-3EDF06A1C3B5

    There were a few pin holes to weld up also.ED6584CD-F3A4-494C-A18A-19545F5B22E1

    Fabed a section for the bottom of the wheel well. F7601F1E-217F-43E0-967A-8D48C1B8BF64

    Used gold paint to mark the vent line cut. Everything came out great!!!3620A5E8-2177-4BA7-B1F2-83FB4C36CEBFE2D2FB13-3FA0-409C-A1F6-0CBAA8C6B00B87A4DF51-E3AD-4A34-9288-9527227919A9
