More blasting, priming and now some welding. Lower hinge pocket needed some cage nuts installed and cab corners needed some stitch welds too. Closed up the hinge pillars too.

Did some detailing on some emblems with Autosol metal polish. Turned out pretty good but nothing can be done about the pitting short of replating... so that's what's getting done.

Looking good FootStomper. Nice looking work.

Got handy with my stainless. Having never worked with it before I think I did pretty good.

Test fit the replacement fenders and ended up deciding to use the originals as they fit far better. The door gap was a deciding factor as you will see in the attached image.

test fit fenders and then media blasted

The rear diff got freshened up with Rustoleum Roc Prime and Sierra waterborne primer and paint. Sprayed very nice!

The split exhaust manifold my dad made got a bead blast then the Eastwood hot application cast iron paint treatment.

Split exhaust and rear diff painted
