Cool. I went back and looked at your first post. Nice truck. Be sure to post more progress pics. We like to see what others are doing.

BTW, you can put truck info in your signature. Click on your username on the upper right of a page and select Edit Profile.
That way I won't have to ask dumb questions. wink

Did this yesterday. Before I got my cab, someone did a number on the firewall trying to install a late model steering column. Had to patch it up since I'd like to go back to an original column. One step closer to finishing the cab! Pics are before and after.

Got the seat riser patch fitted and welded in. Still working on grinding the welds. The bottom driver's side flange and most of the riser below the bottom bead rusted away. I bent a piece of sheetmetal and stretched the flange to fit the curve. Worked out pretty well, I think. Also completed welding the floor patch and started grinding the welds. This doesn't have to look that nice as it'll be covered by undercoating eventually. Not too worried about appearance of the part underneath the seat.
First pic is the riser patch fitted, Second is welded in, and third is the floor panel.

I got the stewart warner speedo reducer hooked up to my r10 overdrive and the speedo is now dead on perfect with my GPS. Also finally changed the plugs out because they had OVER 150k mi on them. Runs like a top!
