    I spliced a 32 visor on my truck too. Did it the same way you show, but it certainly doesn't look as good as the job you did. Awesome work my friend!

    Great sheetmetal repair work your doing, I'm trying to bang out a 33 cab for a friend,wish I had your skills,all my work needs filler. Here's an unrelated question, why do the32-34 panel trucks not have the visor?

    It is rare for a master to share his secrets. What you show is a measure of them, certainly without the actual hard work that lies in between the 'then' and 'now'. I hope others are as inspired by this, as I am. Thank you. Carl
     
  4. I think the 32 is rejecting the A parts. It will need anti rejection drugs the rest of its life. :D

    Early 32 truck tops were smooth behind the visor and late in the production year they added a bead at the back edge of the visor which carried over into 33/34.

    Flop, Where did your rob that sweet flat magnet you're using on the roof panel? An old motor or disc drive?

    Still looking Great! Would love to see an image or two of your sub-floor if you wouldn't mind? I was thinking 3" channel on my 34 cab but still debating. I want to use as much of the stock floor as possible. Thnx. :)
