    The goal is to have it on the road this summer, there is a lot of work to be done and the bodywork is most of it.

    Floor pans are all welded in, seat brace is welded in, also.made up a few clips for holding the lines and spotted them to the new floor pan, didn't really like the patchwork I did on the rear wheel opening so I did it over again.
    The problem was someone did some old style bodywork to it and drilled it full of holes before putting the bondo to it.....

    Stripped most of the paint from the bed, lots of small dings and dents to fix here....
    Then I will be welding in the supports for the new bed.

    Just used whatever worked, 99% of the paint is off, just needs to be cleaned up now.

    I have been doing some work on it, it is presently at my shop and I have been doing some welding on it, plugging holes in the engine bay that will not be used and so on.
    It is ready to come back home and start prepping for paint.

    It is a very slow project to say the least.......

    I am hoping once I start the body work and paint, it may move along a little faster.

    Well.....
    2 years later and I am back at it, hope to stay on it this time and get some work done.
    Stripped all the primer that I had previously put on, was not happy with the adhesion, even tho I used metal prep then zinc chromate before priming.
    Decided to go with POR15.

    My goal is to get the whole body coated with the POR15 and go from there.
    I am brushing it on, which seems to work well, you can get it in all the seams etc.
    I am liking the results so far.
