Popular Post Freightrain Posted May 8, 2017 Popular Post Share Posted May 8, 2017 Well it took two years and lots of prodding to get my friend to finally start on making the pieces. The g/f was getting impatient about having to sleep sitting up in the passenger seat. Making the corner piece was the biggest deal, the door was simple. The corners are aluminum extrusions and took some finesse to fabricate from pieces and weld together into something straight and usable. I was pleasantly surprised when my friend handed me the piece and it fit right up and looks good. The only thing left is to get the skin back on the rear. I have a piece cut for the open section, but after looking at the drivers side it looks kinda rough and since I'm fixing it I might as well fix that sheet too. Need to stop and get another sheet of aluminum and shear it to size. Once that is on I will scuff it down and paint the whole thing. Won't be any show winner, but after what it looked like: I'm pretty happy with it. Will be a few weeks before I can get paint on it, but should get on the truck shortly. Much to the g/f's excitement! 7 Quote Larry 1959 B61 Liv'n Large...................... Charter member of the "MACK PACK" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
