You may already be done with this stage? but had a few moments .. no customers so did these .. was going to add to frame but lots of options here so quit for now.
That's awesome work Lars! Thank-you! First window would be my pick if I had unlimited time/wanted to make more work for myself, but probably will just be a non window.

Didn't get much done this week. Got a sandblasting cabinet though! Made a cyclone dust separator, hooked up to 6" duct fan with a f700 air cleaner for the exhaust filter. Works well!

Did one small patch on the rear cab wall, and started straightening the roof out. Ordered 2 4x8 sheets of 18ga as I realized I wouldn't have nearly enough for the roof etc.

Getting and setting up qualifies as 'stuff done'.. Especially this past year where it has, still does for certain things, taken forever to get things if you even can. Its not just completed things but the raw materials to make.. Wood is starting to return here, some types of steel are still massive delays to get, and all of it is crazy prices due to the situation. You are not only across a border but believe fairly remote which doesn't make it any easier.. Maybe this will wake people up to why having almost everything made across an ocean in either direction is dangerous. Waiting 8 weeks or longer and then hearing its delayed ... WAIT you mean 8 weeks ISN'T already delayed has made working on things a nada nada nada.. SO congrats on what you got and were able to set up.. beats what I was able to do

Windows look nice but the no windows is growing on me

Not much progress, busy with work and missus f150 ttb rebuild. Had to reorganize shop again to fit new brake though!

Got the side panels and door pillar bracing welded up and added some wheels so I don't have to balance it on the forklift every time I move it.

Got trans cover started. Probably have to cut the firewall and make a dog house to fit the engine, if not just make access to valves/injectors easier.

Really happy with the brake. Been wanting one for a long time! Removable fingers is awesome. Just have to brush up on my geometric development.

Yes! Even got some sunshine for a change.

Got the drip rail off the roof. Sort of made a mess when I initially cut rear panel off, but I have no regrets.

Made drip rails for the extension. Broke what I could then formed the rest over 1/2 sq w/ chisel. Should have the roof cut in half pretty soon here.

Also new tires day for the ford! Michelin XMLs

Started the week off with a bunch of welding on a busted ass side dump. This is typical of the metal work I normally do.

Got the roof cut & top panel tacked in today. Not sure if it'll work where it is but I have a feeling once I pull the sides in the dents will lift up.
We will see. I hate templates!

Cut the roof the way I did to reduce distortion post welding, help roof retain its strength and most of all; the compound curves start at cut line.

The roofs pretty messed up. In a perfect world I would of got it all straight before I cut it, but ah well!

No progress as of late. I have a bunch of photos I forgot to upload from the cab swap. I will make a post tonight.

Lots of boat work. 6-71 detroit 3 bent rods. 350 chev rebuild. 3-53 detroit in forklift torn apart siezed due to water in exhaust. Currently helping my buddy re/re his transmission from his f450 service truck which blew up yesterday.

Might be a month till any more progress

ok fellas some more photos!

This was the first wheeling I'd done. I was quite pissed off by the end of it and ended up tacking it in and calling it a night. With a bit of finessing it straightened out ok. The roof sprung out a bit post cutting which was expected. I was going to make a form or brace to hold it in shape, but it wasn't really in a great shape before I cut it. Cut first measure later.

The side pieces turned out much nicer. Drivers side which was the first one I put a bit too much crown in so little bit more work on the dolly pulling that out.

Well predictably I made a whole bunch more work for myself rushing to get the roof tacked together. Nothing quite like the feeling of knowing what you're doing isn't going to work, but going ahead with it anyway!
Rather than getting everything nice and straight first I figured (hoped) I would be able to do that after welding the roof together. Which didn't really work. I then proceeded to over stretch, then what I thought was over shrink, and then once again over stretch the poor old roof.
Once I came to my senses I was pretty mad at myself and put a blanket over the truck for a week. Ariana helped me to shrink down the egg of shame (no photos!) Then we wheeled it out ever so gently. She isn't too big and its a big and heavy panel to roll through, so quite an exercise. I am very proud of her and grateful for the help and patience with me!

Happy with where it's sitting for now. It will need some dollying in a few places before fit-up, but the shape is all there and it's tight. After pulling the roof off found a few patches that need rust repair. I'm working on that now. These photos are from april/may-ish
