    What's your clear dimension between the frame rails?

    21" ish. The space between the tube cross member just behind the axle and the back of the frame was 28x21. Or that was my intended size I was shooting for.

    Just to clarify....your clear dimension is 21 inches measuring side to side (from left tire to right tire)? Reason why I am double checking is my clear frame space side to side (between the frame rails) is 28 inches. I know 74/75 had a wider frame but that is considerable! I'm gonna get me a gas tank!

    OK. So you're 28 inch clear as well.

    The frames are the same width from the front cab mounts back,the rear spring hangers are longer on the 74/75,I have changed them and put an earlier rear on a 75 before.Todd Sommer built a nice travelall with a 33 gallon scout tank in it,he had to put the filler through the frame though.

    I was able to get a "flexible" 2" filler hose to squish down enough to sneak over the top of the frame rail, it's about 1.75"

    Got the final pieces of glass out. Seals did not survive... Thoughts on new rubber vs glue in?

    [​IMG]



    Window channels were chunky, but actually very solid, no holes or anything.

    [​IMG]



    And got the pass side DA'ed to 80 grit, except where the handles are, and a few little spots around the windows. Gutters are cleaned up and a coat of POR15 went on them.

    The goal is epoxy Monday..... eeek.

    Could of had a WHOLE PALLET of those Windows a few years ago. I opted not to. Very hard to handle and haul. It prolly weighed 1000-1200 lbs. Was a little over 1' tall stacked on pallet. 2 piles. LoL. I backed away.

    Yeah IH didn't skimp on the glass!! Its thick. Mine is all good (except I need a windshield) but need to find a gasket or just glue the rears in.

    You're a lucky guy! My channels show evidence of a lot of water infiltration (rust and rot). I will be reinstalling my glass with glazing urethane sealer. I figure I will shim as needed and then caulk the joint entirely. I think you could use some scraps of the old gasket to serve as periodic spacers. The trim on the inside keeps the glass in of course. But when you install with the urethane, the bond will be with the glass and the sheet metal. For the time being, I'll be going over the existing gasket. Product I'll be using is Dow 795 Silicone in black. Not the perfect product for the application but I am just looking to stop the leaking and I have plenty of it in black.

    Coated the window channels in POR. I did find a couple holes after vac and scrubbing a bit. Nothing major and I think I will just leave them...

    [​IMG]

    Ground the welds off the fenders, duraglassed the pinholes, and got them all sanded to 80 grit. Front valence as well.
    Why am I trying to save this fender?!
    [​IMG]

    Spent the rest of my time in the garage with the big 8" DA. Stripping around the windows on the drivers side.... Where I don't fit between the boat and truck. Im sore today.

    Everything is DA'ed to 80!! Whew, my back and shoulders hurt. OK I lied, I have to pull the door handles and do those spots and the door edges on the driver side since I can't open those doors at the moment.And hand sanding all the door frames at the gaps...

    Its on wheels again! Threw it on the dollies, uhhh they are useless, I cant move it :D

    [​IMG]

    On the dollies, at full air up, its LOW :) Getting exhuast under the frame rail is going to be a challenge.

    [​IMG]

    I made a mistake..... I took the wire wheel to the windshield frame the clean the old gunk out. Well it melted and flung all over my freshly sanded front end.... And its stuck on. Grrr. MEK and steel wool takes most of it off, but I am going to have to resand the hood and cowl and roof at the front :(

    [​IMG]

    Im getting some flash rust also, gutters and scattered around in some other areas. I'll throw some Ospho on them Friday hopefully.

    Nice progress! Can you determine if there is a way to easily access the cowl area (through the grilles between the windshield and hood)? My Terra has a convenient panel that provides nice access. Reason I am asking is I have some leaks that are coming in through there. I really need to get in there and tighten things up.

    PS-My Mastercool flare tool arrives today!

    No! Its stupid.... I may cut a 2" ish hole under each of the "wing" panels, I dropped some body puller studs in there..... It would be nice to be able to vac pine needles etc out too.

    Awesome :) its a nice tool!

    I cut almost the whole area out under those panels,I leave them open and just screw the coer back on.The passenger side you can get through the heater core opening.
