I have a guy that will do it. It's just a matter of welding up everything underneath, then taking it off rotisserie, then loading it up on trailer, then putting it on rotisserie, then spray. Then off, then trailer. You get my point. Lol

Does the ez liner fully harden?

Yes it gets pretty hard, so far I've no problems with it on the panel , has 12,000km's on it now and there is no chipping under the fenders at all, it appears to be very durable and a kit is only $99. ,I purchased mine on sale for $74

Ok so I am basically done with the lower portion of cab. Floor is sealed up, all cab corner inners done, other rot areas patched.

I'm thinking it's time to shave the drip rails and do the final door fitment. Two ways are running through my head.

Put it back on the wood crate and do it, or start the chassis and do it while its all bolted down where the cab will be when finished. I'm leaning towards 'B'.

Not because I want to see more progress and I'm excited to start the frame, but because I think it would be better as a preventative measure so I only do it once..

Thoughts? Anyone have issues doing it off the frame?

What a pain it is to get the old pins out. Started with 8 hinges. First two were easy. Last 2 were not fun at all. Oh and im not done replacing them after 3+ hours.. Only got one done..<br/><br/>Endless amounts of cheap drill bits used, torches, grinder, cut off wheel, hammers, and i even set off the carbon monoxide alarm. (Everyone should have one in their shop or garage)<br/><br/>So after airing out the garage for a bit, i called it a day..lol

Whoa, that is heavy! Something around 22-24 lbs would improve ride quality (and handling of course).

Interesting question. What feels more natural to you? Most cars / trucks these days have top mount pedals so that is what people become accustomed to.

Your project is coming along nice. I'm going with the top mount "reverse" style super pedal. It contains the masters and reservoirs inside.

Unless there is a lot of adjustment on the angle of the floor mounts, it looks like you actually need the top mount pedals. It looks like the floor mounted pedals are for a vehicle with a really low seat.
