Looks like a truck again. Things are sure going together quickly now.
By the way Martin, you called it. I had to take the box off to get the cab on as my hoist was maxed out! 😉😎

Started bolting on stuff today... Shiny stuff!

I scuffed down the dually running board this afternoon and layed down the bed liner. It went well. Still have to finish the under side but I might do that Thursday. Tomorrow I pick up more paint, varnish for the wood, more little hvlp filters. Thursday I am taking in the old exhaust head pipe to get a new one bent and then some extra tubing and a new muffler so I can weld out the exhaust system.

Getting ahead of myself but I installed the splash aprons and running boards. I do need to pull them off in order to install the rubber seal that runs between the board and the cab underside.
I applied a second coat of varnish to the wood.
Exhaust is delayed as I intended to use that trip to the city to pick up a window that was on order for our smashed back window from a storm. The window was delayed so I put off the exhaust for when the window is in.
I ordered all the rubber for the cab along with a bunch of other goodies. I was going to use my old stuff but it's just not nice enough now to reinstall. However, I will be selling it locally to offset the cost of parts. Some of it is usable though 😀

Looking forward to parts arriving so I can bolt on the fenders, tailgate and extensions! Oh boy. BLAM BLAM BLAM! Stuff is flying out of the parts shed and onto the truck!

I always liked Christmas!

Tailgate installed tonight, latches ready to go in, radio delete plate installed, top cowl vent installed, sealed and adjusted. I had a lot of fun opening and closing it. It was satisfying to hear the click, click, click. Fully open, fully seated. Nice! I put very thin rubber along the back edge of the running board as a gasket to prevent squeaks. It looks really good and I suspect it will do a great job. I removed and reinstalled the heater vent ducts under the dash as I installed them backwards. I love all the pictures I took while disassembling! I also cleaned up the shop. That last one really was needed as I was running out of bench area because of so many little jobs on the

This is how she sits tonight. I've never had this much fun wrenching on any of my trucks before! My wife had to tell me to come in as I easily lose track of time.

Update on paint...just front fenders and hood to paint and this old girl is PAINTED!
