This is how it sits..........it has been dead for awhile. I have been hoarding parts for it. My shop will be finished this spring, so I can get back to work. IF my back holds out (spondy with a few herniations) been a trying year or so. AND IF I quit taking on more projects........

Made some progress, got the top of the cab blasted inside and out. Put it in some weldable primer.

Gonna put KBS on the inner portions, weld it up, and once everything else is done, I will blast the whole cab and get it in epoxy.

I tipped the front down about an inch. But did it in the roof, not in the pillars.

Spent Thanksgiving week building my benches and table. Getting closer to getting back to the truck full time.

You've made great progress on the rust repairs... once that nightmare is finished you get to start with the fun part, the engine build!

Ditto what bobby said,

Fantastic Shop and very clean, always good to see young helpers too, but since you have Batman helping you it should be done in no time!
