Got the front body mounts off as well and the floor stiffeners for under the doors. The other short ones go near the front of the cab from the sill stiffeners to the transmission tunnel. Thinking of adding another set from the other cab at the rear of the cab and use them for the body mounts.
Put a wire wheel in my grinder to clean away the paint to show up the spot welds in the roof gutter. Also showed up some rust as well. The other side had been repaired with a arc welder so will make removing the roof skin harder.
Roof all unpicked. So far the other roof skin looks better so hopefully be able to use more of that. I want to pancake the roof an inch or so anyway but also need to make it nearly 9" wider and 7-8" longer.
Looks like it has had a roof chop already. My plan is to lower the whole front and rear windows 2" not changing their height. Not sure if that is sectioning or a roof chop? The side window frames will end up 2" shorter as well which will make them the same height as the front windscreen. Was going to go 3" originally but worried it would look too low as widening the cab already lowers it visually.
First floor out. This one has a better floor but the firewall had been butchered for a V8 conversion. The other floor is rusted out but has most of the original firewall intact. Wont be needing them anyway.
To make the cab 9" wider, I will probably cut each side of the cowl vent on this 58 cab and use the outer corners. On the 48 cab I will cut 4.5" past each side of the vent and use the centre section. Then join them back together.
Not a lot left. Did find some rust that will have to be cut out above the door openings. It is 3 layers thick there for some reason and water has gotten in between when the gutter rusted out.
