epoxy coat on top,..next is epoxy on bottom and then spray on the Raptor Liner. Then flip it back normal, and can start the body work. The pass quarter has some issues by the tialight, a few hours with the hammer and dolly will make it good enough for bondo.
It's not going to be a show car, but im sure will stand out in the crowd..

So got the body flipped over and was able to lay eyes upon the inner structures. The only rust is on the driver’s floor where the seat riser was once welded. I’ll cut out a panel and weld in some new sheetmetal. Then will be spraying the epoxy and the ‘bedliner’ in the next few days. Then get the body flipped back over.

There is a good sized dent on the passenger quarter, I’ll get that worked out, and I saw one or two other areas that need attention.

I also need to shave the two fuel doors. Once that is done, I’ll get the first coats of primer on the body.

Once the body is in primer, It’ll get moved out of the shop to sit and shrink. Then I can move the chassis in and start the fabrication on it. Need to cut the brackets off the new axles, and make the chassis a roller. From there will fit the engine back in and modify anything that needs it.

If everything goes well, it’ll get pulled apart chassis sent out for powder coating, and spray some color on the body.

Little rust repair, and then sprayed on the raptor liner. Body has been sitting outside for a few days and this week will get it flipped back over to begin body work.

...started hacking the brackets off the rear axle, in the next day or two will do the same to the front axle. Then will break them both down to be sent out for sandblasting. They are coated with a rust proofing material, and it's much easier to weld on clean steal than try removing that crap. The rear axle will get a truss, leaf spring and shock mounts. Then off for powder coating. I don't know (yet) what gear ratio are in these axles, so not sure if a rear gearing is in the future..

No need to truss the rear 10.5 if you're putting it back on leafs. Unless you're just doing what they call a simple truss. A full truss won't fit with leaf perches.

Always like the way this tailgate was done. Really brings it into the more modern timeframe. So, I'm going to try my hand at crafting something like this, but not at the angle this gentleman has the entire rear of this rig.

Sent the superduty axles out for sand blasting. Removed most of the brackets, still have a half a day or so of grinding, then can start modifying them.
