Finally got the cab media blasted a couple weeks ago, and finished welding up what was needed after cleaning.

Here are some pre blasting pics

















And some post blast...final welding..














I am taking it to a local body shop for them to do all the final body work and get it to a primer coat later this week. I could maybe do the work myself...but this is one thing I want done right so it lasts.

Since I am planning on putting in floor insulation and mat I just painted the cab floor inside and out with the same Chassis Saver I painted on the frame.

Great progress! I gotta get to work on my 56 Cab some day. Did you put a new back in your Cab or is it just blasted clean?

just blasted clean. I had to use some heavy duty stripper to remove the sprayed on tar like coating on the backof the cab wall, before I sent it off for blasting.
