Finally! ....someone puts up a thread about building something.....and even a pic to prove it. Sure beats some of the posts lately. That ought to get me in trouble

Back to your post; the metal is a good idea on 68 up so the front hood latch release won't tear out.....Ok, you had some practice, go slice the top off and put up some more pics

I don't know what you mean.

We have had

....oil strainer,

Suicide doors....,

Fenders and running boards,

....clutch tube,

....peddle assembly,

.....beam extender

and who could forget

....auto stick,

And all those just in a couple of weeks.







Oh and good work.

Thanks fellas :)

The recessed part is for the pass. side defrost cable hook...the same reason the stock glovebox has a funny corner in it.

I'll get on the top soon, hopefully (probably not till summer, and I need a donor roof...). I wish I could work on her this weekend, but alas, I'm going skiing...woe is me haha

Excellent job, man! Like Danny said... looks like it came from the factory.

And I agree... seeing an actual fabrication post is a breath of fresh air. Thank you for that.

My pleasure :) I actually found a few small spots where I missed the truck bed coating, so I'll touch it up tomorrow. I may mount an open-door actuated light in there, too. Kinda a nice feature, and easy to do.

Got those touchups done, as well as painting the trunk release. I used American Accents - (something) Wine. It's a dark red, has a bit more blue in it that I expected/like, but it'll do for now.

I'll get pics when I go back to work on Tuesday

I took the cheap and easy way, my glove box was still solid so I painted it inside and out with por-15. Seems really solid and doesn't look too bad though it won;t last as long as metal. Good fab job!

Yeah if mine wasn't falling apart I probably wouldn't have changed it at all. It was pretty loose in its strap, and there was tissues and stuff holding it tight, along with duct tape holding it all together haha
