thanks ..

got to work on the wheels and stance today ..

New fenders with my big fat rollers





they fit awesome , but I wont be able to stuff them up in there .. just to close .. so I tried out some 5" back spacing wheels .. closer , but still not what I want

It's actually going to be my bend tool .. so I'm going to try out my powder coating as well with powdercoating it and saving it



I have to still "draw" up my tube work in my solidworks software so stay tuned .. STOKED !!

prepping the inner rockers for the new body mounts .. I of course found rust :( .. so now I have to fix that first .. I was really surprised , this cab was in awesome shape no rust at all , or so I thought .. just goes to show you , even if you think you have no rust .. you probabally do !!

undercoating wire wheeled off , and looking great



and cut out rust !!

so over the last week , I have been building my repair panels and today I was able to get them burnt in , rears as well





now with the rockers repaired , I was able to get the cab height finalized @ 9" from the rockers to the Ground . + I also started on the cab mounts
Because there are only going to be 4 mounts instead of 6 , I wanted to make sure there were going to be strong .
cut out some 3/16" plate and surrounded it with some tube


Tacked into place I will add some more supports later , when I turn the frame over .



1 more front frame mount tomorrow , then I can get on the front cab mount

and cab side mount

Bent up some 1/2" solid stock with the 3/16" plate . as well as a "fish plate" for the cab side , 1/2" stock actually goes threw the fish plate for a stronger "plug" weld , and a toyota stock body mount bushing , I now have the front mounted





and now the front of the cab is mounted
still have some supports and final welding to do when I can turn over the frame , but for now it's good to go

also .. the cab now has it final "stance"





acetone can for referance ....
