Ripped out the passenger side rocker and fitted the replacement.

Pic 1 is the floor with the rocker gone - needs a little cleanup and straightening.
Pic 2 is the remnants of the rocker - had a few too many rot holes for my taste. Was initially going to splice front and rear on the existing, but decided to replace the complete thing.
Pic 3 is the new rocker set in place temporarily. will weld it in another day.

Is your cab on some sort of rotisserie, or are you just turning it over?

It's on a rotisserie. Makes it a lot easier to work on the floor, which is my main task.
Here's a link to setting up the rotisserie.

Freshened up the paint on my grill and front bumper. I removed and dissembled the grill. This involved removing some bolts and 18 rivets. The exposed surfaces were in good shape but I had rust stains running down the face of the grill coming from the joints where the various grill piece were joined.

New ALUMINUM cam timing gear installed, along with the new crank gear. Not that I'll EVER have to fool with the front cover again big_eek, but I drilled and tapped the main cap for bolts installed through the front--cuz I just gots ta fiddle with it! This time I'm using a very nice centering tool that my FIL turned up... slips over the crank snout and centers the cover for the balancer seal. I didn't do that the first time I tore this thing down and I developed a leak rather quickly... it pays to read the repair manual.

I had the distinct pleasure of installing a new temperature gauge in the '47. It works just like it should!

How do you big fellas work under the dash in these ADs? I'm 5'9" and 175 lbs, I'm just glad there wasn't any more of me to try to fit between that seat riser and the pedals........

Needless to say, I'm glad to have this job done!!

You lay every conceivable tool within easy hand reach without having to do an unnatural bend at the elbow, you light it up with as many lights as possible (that'll stay put), you lead in with your arms already extended cause theres no way to get them in position once your wedged in, you do every possible thing you can before diving in to minimize time on station and you wear safety glasses to deflect that which will fall directly on your face. You are guaranteed a sore back for a day or two afterwards.

I recently had to crawl under my 49 Chevy's dash to upgrade the gas gauge and lights to 12v's, I'm in no hurry to get the stock gauges working in the 49 GMC....

I added a cell phone holder to the dash that I hope won't fall off or jiggle too much. Handy Andy, I am 5'9" and 200 and I have fallen between the seat and the floor shifter and did not know which way to turn to get out. It was a little scary when you live alone.

Dave - You must have been watching me replace that new temp gauge, LOL! I have to admit, my left side is still sore from that seat riser......

Ron - Maybe you could've used the cell phone to dial 911! I wish I had a dollar for every one of those 'stuck person' calls that I responded to over the years.....

You guys made my day. grin
