When I heard about the Caddy I felt a bit disappointed. But seeing pics of it, so much of it is custom made, that it kind of loses a bit of the Nomad-ness. Still an amazing car, though!
So, after welding the A pillars solid, as well as the support behind the windshield, I decided to tackle the B pillar, instead of all that welding on the sheet metal up front.
The main choice to make was to keep the dip or not. Not wanting to make a mistake, I left it in, thinking it would be easier to remove it later, if I wanted, than to add it. So I welded in some 1/8" supports from the door jamb reinforcement, to the roof's. Then a templaet for a filler to replace the brazed joint, and make up the difference in height for the Olds dip.
I'm thinking I am starting to like the dip now. I was the one against it in the beginning.
The tricky part was moving the roof forward and back to get the B pillar lined up. And cutting it down bit at a time to sneak up on it matching the lower part. I prefer to butte weld everything whenever I can.
