    Ha, I just meant that the frame actually still has the original engine after all these years.

    I started working on the bed sides. Using 20ga. steel and grafting in two VW bus engine vent louvers on the drivers side and a solid panel on the passenger side.

    Started the sheet metal work under the doors on the cab. The tubing will serve as the bottom of the rocker panel.



    Also going to rebuild the cab corners.



    Temporarily held in place with a piece of angle iron.























    Ran out of time, just need to smooth off the tack welds tomorrow



    Everything is painted inside and out

    Like the video, your project is flying along. Great progress. I think I missed somewhere how the head lights flip around?

    Thanks! For now, the headlights rotate manually thru a spring mounted arrangement. Lift up, rotate 180 degrees and drop back into a slot. I rarely drive at night, so not much of an issue. I'll look into a cab control arrangement if I decide to keep these lights.

    While building this truck, I wanted to make sure that I could park it inside my security fence and close the gate



    Thats got to be at least a 1/4" to spare!
