That’s how I should have done mine. I didn’t know enough then.

How so? I had planned on keeping each section going to completion. but that was blown out of the water. I think I am satisfied with the cab and hood. The real bodywork begins now. I think I am going to pause it and go back to the bed, get that done and out of the way of everything else.

Well. Played around with the bed this weekend. Needed.a break.from the cab. Got boards cut, into place, end one cut to accept the side rail, ss angle strip drilled, and bed side drilled. Only have pics of the boards in place. Going with generic composit boards there is no cutting at all. Nine of them drop right into place perfectly.

Did you blast the frame? What paint used on it? Did you hire someone to media blast the cab or ? And what media, any problems with not being able to get all the media out of the inner panels?


Kicking self for selling off my Taskforce trucks.
Still looking for an LCF or conventional big bolt in decent shape.

I did not blast the frame. I pw, wire wheeled, pw, used acid and oven cleaner to clean. I used Eastwood rust encapsulator on frame and suspension. One coat by bursh second coat by spray. I will probably top coat with a undercoat material once all together cause it scratches easily.

I had the cab blasted. Crushed glass. I imagine there is still media in areas. Did my best to blow vacume it out.

When I had my cab blasted it was on a rotisserie, so I could rotate, vacuum, rotate, vacuum, etc. to get the leftover media out. There was still just a bit in a few places, but that just made the primer coat "slip-resistant." grin

If you're smart enough to take it apart, you darn well better be smart enough to put it back together.

Got a couple min this weekend. Need to have someone here come for a whole day so I can't be sucked away for family crap.

Got a sway bar in, motor mounts painted and installed after a acid bath. And one bed side finished. Pic is one last small dent I got rid of.

Rear fenders are done to the best of my ability. Have to set up the garage to spray some color now.

Well,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Bed bodywork is done!!! Last coat of primer went on Sunday after a stupid amount of time trying to straighten everything out. None of the pieces are perfect, but they are soooo much better than they were. Just a light sanding to prep it for color and I am in happytown!!!
