update 1/25/14

Haven't updated in a while. Went out to my buddies house 90 miles away and got my bed and tailgate out of his barn. Bed had had the bump creased so it is pushed in a little; something for the paint guy. Tailgate is beat to **** so I found another one and had it shipped to me. As you will see in the pics I am still on a quest to make this truck more useable per say. I moved the parking brake from the kick panel to down next to the seat; between the seat and the door. Its a lokar floor mount. I put the speakers in the kick panels just aft of the vent hole which I have sealed up since the pictures were taken. The 8 inch sundown audio sub woofer will be mounted in the floor of the cab under the seat. I also never liked the seat belt mounting location so I moved it back away from the side of the seat. Should clean up the look of the interior when the door is open.

So here is what has been consuming most of my time lately. If you look down the door of these trucks the bump part of the skin actually bows out a little. It is not straight. Mine was nearly straight so I suspected something and found that the aft part of the bump just under the door handle was pressed in pretty badly and filled with boded from the previous owner. So I failed miserably at trying to repair it. I can fab and weld stuff but doing thin sheet metal is not my forte. So I went and found another door that had a good bump and skin on it still. My door is a 67; this door was a 72. I cut a section out of the doner door and Marked where I needed to remove the old door skin. I then Bonded strips of metal on the inside of the door for a lip to bond the the door skin on. A few tack welds in the corners to maintain the door edge; a little filler work, and bam, a new door. And yes, you read that right, I BONDED a skin on. Learned this little trick from a buddy of mine that does high dollar restorations. No heat to deal with and easy to use. I used the valvoline PlioGrip.

Seeing what you did on the door makes more sense now. Looks great.

That's a neat way to do it. I've been welding very thin aluminum ducting for the last couple weeks so I understand the frustration with sheet metal moving around.

I'll be going with the bonded method for my metal repairs as well as I have no welder.
I'll have to hit my brother in law up for any welding.
Nice progress, and good pictures.

Nice progress. I like the sunken speaker box idea. Thanks for posting the bonding pics. I had heard of this but had never seen it.

A lot of body panels on new vehicles these days are bonded. Nothing wrong with doing it that way at all!

Thanks for the compliments guys. Unfortunately while I was fitting the doors and getting all the panels and whatnot lined up for paint I noticed a problem. My drivers side frame rail aft of my notch is about a 1/4 inch higher at the very back of the frame. This made the back drivers side of the bed higher so looking down the truck the bump was rising as it went from the door to the back of the bed. Not too big of a deal; I will just make new frame rails behind the rear axle notch.

Outstanding work, looks great.

Forgive my ignorance but what is a 4BT Cummins? What truck or tractor did they come out of? Is it a 3, 4, 5 or 6 cyl?

I think a lot of Isuzu's had them. Lots and lots of bread trucks. There is also a 6bt, I think, 6 cylinder. The 4bt is a four pot. If any of this is incorrect, it wasn't intentional.
