IThink U Should Stop Crying Like A Girl And Lets Load It Up
Back at it! I couldn't sleep thinking more rust monster may be hidden under the roof panel.... that's where these trucks rust the worst! there's no way to check without major surgery!
No major rust.... a lot of work getting in there but better piece of mind!
Only spot was pass side
DIE RUST MONSTER!
Rust free patch!
one piece at a timeeeee.....
making sure its tight and in place
I definitely clamped it a smidge hard in a few parts, going to have to fill a few dents with mud....
and the last panel up top
Would love to hear/see more about how/where you cut to access those tight roof spots.
I don't want to sound negative but I am very surprised regarding all the rust repair you are doing. I bought a donor truck many year ago for my own project out of western Colorado with previous history in the PNW and it required none of what you are doing on this Arizona body. Yes, I opened the cowl and did preventative work but nothing around the glass front and back or lower rear cab. I'm now rethinking my position on the desert sheetmetal. I have an A model pickup in AZ right now trying to get home. I sure hope I don't have to patch it up like you have.
Monkey, what exactly are you talking about? I cutout above the pillar enough to get the welder back in. Some of it was tight, but it's back together.
It did spend some time in Washington. The rear cab was due to a leaking window and the windshield area the water had gotten behind it. Of course I wish it was completely rust free but it's way better than I could find around here.
Keep up the good work brother. I guess the little spots add up fast. It never dawned on me the amount of them. This truck is gonna be sick when your done. And yes...the truck actually spent more time in the PNW, then it did in AZ.
Also, I may have missed it...but what turbo do you plan to run?
Yeah Jared, I probably could have cut corners on some spots, but then I would lose sleep at night. I'm not 100% sure on what turbo yet. The guy I get my injectors and pumps from started selling water cooled ball bearing turbos, i think I'll run with one of those. The pump I had built is pushing 75% more flow than stock and the injectors pressure tested and matched. Just want to find a turbo that'll keep up on the bottom and not choke out up top. Should be able to spin er up to about 4000 rpms.
I am the previous owner (PO) of this truck, I got it in a trade with AZDIESEL. This makes him the previous-previous owner ( PPO ). We all knew that it had rust issues - and are a little surprised that it was that extensive.
If I had kept the truck, it would NOT get the rust repairs. I am real happy it went to a good home.
Yeah I still remember when we agreed on the deal you said you knew it would go to a good home! Like I said I knew it was worth it because if I found one anywhere else it'd have way more issues!
I blew up the pics and started with fresh eyes, and I see what you did now. Thanks.
gotcha! glad I could help!
