Glad to see you back at it.
Sorry you hate bodywork. Maybe you've done just too much of it in your life?

Keep after it and try to enjoy.

I'm anxious to see this truck on the road!

Roger, I haven't done a ton of it so I am not very good which is probably why I dislike it. I am getting better and learning some tricks to make it alittle more enjoyable. The finished product is very rewarding, once it is all smooth.

Block sanded drivers door, pass rear fender last night. also shot some spray bedliner on the underside of the bed steps and the bottom of the bed floor. Hope to spray some more paint tonight.

weekend update.
got 4 good coats on the drivers door and pass rear fender, door looks perfect but ended up getting a small run on the fender. Plan to fix that this evening and reshoot the fender. shot POR-15 bedliner on the bed floor and rear bed steps and installed both. fuel filler cap is in and floor is bolted down. Had to work on my girlfriends truck yesterday, once it was done I block sanded the entire cab of the truck. plan to paint it weds. going to start on the pass door tonight or tomorrow. Not happy with some of my initial panel work, going to cut it out and weld a new piece in. Also remake the window track since I am converting both doors to single pane glass instead of having a vent wing.

I've sure heard complaints about the single pane glass kits. You may want to research that before committing to it.

Roger, thanks for the advice. it is kinda too late, I have already cut and made the drivers door for th single glass. I may do the pass door this weekend. already have the glass. I didn't buy a kit, which I did read mixed reviews on. I built my own with some guidance I came across.

no I can hang the finished door and put the glass in so it isn't sitting around my shop anymore. had a small run in the fender that I had to fix, so it got another few coats of paint.

Cool. I bet because you are doing your windows custom, you won't have the issues people complain about.

You are really coming along!
Maybe done in time for some shows this summer?
