    image.jpg Sorry just re read, you cut 8 inches of the bottom, here's my door tops, not overly happy with that either, but you see what I mean with radius on tops of doors

  3. Thanks for the pictures. I took 8 inches off the bottom, moved the bottom hinge up. Took 8 inches out of the center of the body to get it to match the 32 frame at the firewall. The flat section at the back of the door is where I plan on having the top go to. The doors are pinched at the front. I do not really care for the windshield so I have been trying out some other ideas, slow but steady

    keep going! I like some of these treasures made from trash and leftovers type of builds.
    love the creativity!

  7. rpu tailgate.jpg RPU Bed side.jpg Worked a little more on the project. Got a tailgate for the bed from a friend. He bought it for his forty but got it home and noticed it was narrowed. Somebody cut about 4 inched off of one side???? Thats okay with me I need to narrow it more anyway so its a castoff that I won't feel guilty about cutting up. \ Did a little more patching on the shortened bed sides. need to get busy with the grinder. Rebuilt the 32 clutch and brake setup, new bushings and shaft.
