A lot of work there, but the interface between the front and back doors looks funky. A sharper upper front corner on the back doors would look better for sure. The roofline interface is also strange looking, but that may just be the fact that the added sheet metal is bare versus the painted roof portions.

Yes, it is hard to visualize how true the top edges of the two door's windows/openings lineup?

Almost looks like the doors lean toward each other, possibly the whole cab is lower in the middle, but may be an optical illusion.

I noticed that the drivers side looks better or more square than the passenger side. Roof curve is wonky also on passenger side. I think the doors could of been more square to each other on that side also. ohwell

Looks like the new owner may have a bit of an issue aligning the passengers side rear door. The belt line and top of the door is too low and at the same time the gap at the front of the door seems good. Could be an illusion, but one has to wonder why they only took it this far.

I like the concept but not the implementation.

I think the angles and the lighting make it hard to discern the quality of that nice job.

Look at image berlow - everything seems to line up.

I think I said basically the same thing about the lighting (bare metal vs. painted).
But I don't care for the way the pillar between doors gets wider at the top.
It is way above my skill level though.

There is an extended cab that was built with factory provided metal for fire trucks in 1950
One was for sale last year up in Saskatchewan, it would be the correct way to get that 4 door without weird illusions and a lot of metal work
They come up once in a while
I have photos somewhere
Much better than this home project on eBay.
