We pulled the hub covers on the front wheels tonight.  There is an inner dust cover.  Wondering how to remove it.  Didn't seem to pull off or turn easily.  Didn't want to bang on it without knowing more about it's removal!  Thanks in advance for any insights.

Did a lot of interior detail work today, painting.  Tomorrow is a day off for me (MLK Jr. Day) so I plan to do lots more and will post pictures tomorrow.

Cheers!

Popped the seat frames and original seats in tonight so I could sit in my truck for the first time on something other than a milk crate!  Don't mind me...I'll be here making "vroom-vroom" noises and g

Still have my question about removing the inner hub covers and am also wondering about door rubber seals.  I only have a couple of little sections still present, but it's so badly dried that I can't remove it without it crumbling.  Trying to determine if the universal "D" shape 3M stripping will work.  Also still pondering a creative headliner solution.  Now that the interior is painted I don't feel like it's so urgent, the flat black kind of makes the roof "disappear" for now. Any thoughts on any of these? 

Today? I donned my respirator and got the rest of the interior painted this morning.  Now tackling the door jambs with my retro hammered paint in small sections.  Shifting levers are detailed and ready to reinstall. Just ordered the last of the supplies I need to start upholstery.  My husband and I tackled two big dents in the cab (one across the back above the window and one above the driver's seat (under the horn mount). With a little patience they have been worked out. Sure am glad to have married a fabricator! 🤩

The work is getting visually gratifying and exciting!  Thanks for following along.

Cheers!

If you use them, get a copy of the catalog, first. There are images and measurements inside that are not on their website. The images are actual size so you can make easy work matching up what you need for clips and special items.

That's cool...you have a seat out of an H model!

The bottom cushion of the driver's seat was clearly not made at the same time as the other cushions.  It was evident before I got to this tag, although the exterior was a near perfect match.  Based on the condition of the back cushion, I suspect it had worn through and was replaced with this one.  I sent some pictures over to Royersford Spring Company - still in business in Pennsylvania and got the attached response.

I don't.  My pedal doesn't have a rubber pad, not sure if the texture was welded on aftermarket or was manufactured like that.  I simply painted it.

It's all part of my master plan...it will come together visually!
