    Was able to divorce the body from the frame today in between getting some "honey do list" things today. Next up give the frame a good inspection and start writing up my next to do's. I still have more to do on the tub so not sure when I will actually start work on the frame.

    And the progress continues, not as quick as I would like it but only so much you can do on the weekends,,,:yes: underneath of tub almost ready for some Raptor liner, the black lines are actually seam sealer.

    Made some progress on the tub this weekend. Finally got the bedliner sprayed under it. Does't look half bad, but glad I spent some time in preping the area with plastic and tarps, makes a bit of a mess when having to spray up in the air .

    looking good! I put down plastic on my shop floor when I sprayed mine and had stepped off it in a couple of spots, the raptor footprints will probably be on the concrete long after I am gone LOL

    Got some time in this week and was able to start sanding down the tub to see what I have ahead of me (regarding body work) ,actually not to bad other than having to fix the P,O work over the wheel wells on the quarters. I decided not to buy replacement quarter panels or end caps and going to work with what I have. I welded the seam between the quarter panel and the end cap and going to fill it in .I know some will say I should have replaced both, but I prefer not to see that seam, I think it will look cleaner.
    I also patched up the left fender, it still needs a bit of refining but it's actually in really good shape. I had to source this fender across the country from me.

    Put in some more work on the weekend, did some more fender fixing, had to fab up new tabs on one fender for the inner fender mounting, and filled some holes on the other fender that previously had a fender flare. The next steps for both of these fenders is to sand them down and body work.

    Spent a whole lot of time in the shop this weekend, did some sanding and more sanding ,,,,, I'll post pictures once all the sanding is done but had to take a break from that and worked on something else so I pulled the hood of the the stand, took it outside and gave it a power washing underneath. Sprayed some heavy duty cleaner on it first and wow, actually looks really good for being original and 42 years old, it only needs a bit of work across the top front.

    Just a couple of quick picks for now, body work on the tub itself is done ,,,,, I think , as long as I stop looking at it :no:. I got to say it came out a whole lot better then expected especially when I look back at what I started with on the tub.
    Once I have the other panels all done I will post more pics, then they will see some 2k Urethane primer, then I get to sand all over again.

    Great work! Wish I had your skill!

    Being a SSII fan, looks like your fender came off a green SSII. A sad day if it got parted. That’s an uncommon paint color, probably CT-399 or Custom Color for a SSII.

    Well, I spent most of the weekend in my shop trying to finish up on the tub, ( removed the dash and steering column and other under dash parts) so I could get it in my homemade paint booth, also had to finish the booth it self. Got the lights and tried to close up any gaps. Made my self some parts racks to hold them up for me and then I put what I could fit in the booth to see how much room I have to move around. Windshield frame, grille, lift gate and tail gate look like they will go in booth on the second round. The plan is hopefully to spray some 2k Urethane primer on the
    upcoming weekend, but I know how my plans turn out sometimes. Here are some more pics.

    The only real body work left to do is finish the doors and then the roof. I probably wont get to the doors until I drop the tub back on the frame which I haven't touched yet.
