[QUOTE=Sixseven;1349413]It didn't seem like it belonged. I have been slow to start, but got underway this weekend. I started on the front fender, but think I would have been better off starting in the cab on panels that will not be visible. I've made several radiused patches, but made the toughest yesterday. It is the lower corner at the grill, compound curves and with a turned in edge. Ken ]

Looking fine from my view, my main goal was to keep bondo to a minimum. Less than a 1/16 or so. Believe me I had lots and lots of grinding. LOL

Glad you're getting going on it. I had a few do overs along the way. But got a little better each time. No where near some of these guys ability, they are artists in my book.

Picked up all the glass and they were kind enough to give me some setting tape for free.

Trial fit the drivers door glass. Installed bottom channel, removed inside felts.

Fought a bit installing reg to actual window, I followed this howto from the hamb:

http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/t...nstall.950978/

Quick paint job on original bevels and screws.

Installed windlace with original tacks, biggest help was sharp awl.

Hats Off to Dennis Carpenter customer service. Had a slight hiccup (Da$% UPS) and they handled it Great!!

Rear interior panels were installed, along with side metal trim pcs.

For the headliner, side trims removed, got my wife to lend a hand, and headliner went in with a little trim and tweaks, overall absolutely no complaints with Dennis' Carpenter Interior kit.

Sorry for the dark pics, just could not find good lighting.

Looking to draw from your experience. I'm making a lower corner patch for the front fender. I recall that you had welded a piece of round bar stock onto the ender to keep the shape. This corner has a sever crown and the part of the metal that folds under the fender needs a serious shrink to keep the shape of the patch to match the fender. Pics below. How did you handle that material that needed to be folded under?

You're Moving right along.


I used the inner rod for the shape, where the metal came along the rod I pie cut, no shrinker here, and hammered the round lip, welded pie cuts.

Whoa, the fender had residual stresses in it. When I cut the piece out that I was going to replace, it sprung into a different shape. I guess if I can get them both to look the same all will be OK.

That is a very pretty pickup. Thanks very much for going through the sheet metal work on it. Inspiration to get going on the floor on mine

Got Carpet!!!

Been dreading this (carpet) for sometime. Took 2 nights and came out alright.

Have not decided for the firewall treatment yet, I have the original piece that goes there in bad shape. Decisions decisions.

Had a bud come over last night late and we hung the doors and installed the seat for the last (yeah right) time.

Taillights and plate holder mounted today.

I have now registered and transferred the title and should be insured by the weekend.

Hopefully first legal ride this weekend. Rear bed and fenders will be taken care of over the winter months. Wife wanted it insured so decided to go ahead and street legal it.

Sunday am shakedown run, very happy!!!!

Buy a new firewall insulator. You'll be glad you did as it really gives a nice finished touch. Your truck is too nice not to do it right. The insulator with padding is about $200+. Get the one that is ABS and it has the correct pattern on it.

Thanks for the suggestion

Since I had the original, perfect template. I ended up using carpet. I already had sound deadener insulation installed, so a couple hours later.......

Its on to the kick panels and this interior will be done.

Hard to get good interior pics but you get the idea.

Carpet looks very nice. You could also use it on the kick panels.
