Something different for a change, applying paint.

Decided I need to move the frame out for the winter to give me lots of room for painting, bodywork etc.

To do that I need a roller chassis again. Sandblasted my rims, primered and painted. Next is to get my tires mounted up and back on the frame, and I'll be able to roll it out in the cold.

Just my luck the spare that came with the truck is a different width rim, so I'll see if I can swap someone out for the correct one.

My spare is 6" wide with a raised center area, totally different than my originals, (last pic) so if anyone is in need of this style rim and has a original in similar shape let me know Thanks

Back on the picture of the headlight bucket repair I see a metal frame suspended from the ceiling. In another photo I think I see a canvas fabric secured over another metal frame but hanging between your truck and the vw bug. Can you describe what you have there?

Can't wait to see it with the white walls mounted! I have a spare 40 wheel but it probably won't be available for awhile as it is still on my truck. I need to get my tires mounted to the correct 35 wheels, then I can unload the two 40 wheels I have. If you are interested send me a pm. Truck is turning out nice by the way!

The hanging suspension is for my spray booth, will be visqueened eventually.

The canvas wall is a heavy duty tarp mounted to remind and protect where the bug stays. LOL

2 separate assemblies. The tarp was too small for my booth (12 x 9) Both are just simple 1/2" emt conduit I had in the rafters.

I also popped out that dent in the drivers fender and could not of been easier, started from the inner area and just pounded it out on my carpeting on the floor. cement underneath and smoothed out nicely.

Thanks for the kind words, no hurry on my end for the spare yet. Truck bed and rear fenders are all next year's project. Looking forward myself to see them mounted, maybe Monday nite if all goes well.

Your truck is quite the project, moving along nicely.

Happy Thanksgiving All.

I finally got through all the pictures and posts, and you have tackled a huge project! I thought my 37 truck was rusted and rough, but yours really needed a lot. Great work, keep it up.

This fender has been a royal pain to say the least

and this has been a project worthy of testing anyone's patience.

2/3rds done now and too many pics taken LOL

At least I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now.

Nice work on those fenders, I read your posts from summer getting the front sheet metal to fit well. It sure paid off as it looks really nice.

Thanks.

The frustration is paying off I guess, still got hours of tweaking but looks like it'll work.
