the drivers door had a broken hinge, and a smashed cowl from banging in the wind all those years. I repaired the hinge and the cowl but the door had a bunch of tears that made it really flimsy. I stitched them up like scars, there was these two big ones and even more in the jamb area.



installed the door and shut it and it was super tight, crammed against the cowl and would not budge rearward. only took a minute to figure out why.



thats gotta be like 2 dollars worth of washers. . I took them out and adjusted the door a little, not enough though.



the red dot on the door, I am thinking of leaving it, it was the indicator for "scrap", I literally bought this truck away from the scrapper by doubling his offer ($100). aside from the cowl and door, its been the nicest I have used.

got the hood on too, everything lines up well. I had dusted some black on the rust, it matches pretty well.





if I had my druthers I would have an iinch more lip on the rear wheels but beggars cant be choosers.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

thanks guys! its funny, when I told people about the yellow fenders black everything else they all looked like they got their lips caught in a screw gun. but now that its in person, people seem to like it. my college colors are black and yellow, I didnt even think about that either!


glass in! new felts and wipers on the door.





other side done too, have the inner frames out to bond the new felt strips to.

backed in under its own power, first time! brakes still a little soft, new calipers probably still full of air. will bleed them again.

tomorrow gauges and taillights, maybe headliner too. tehn its carpet and bumpers and little stuff!
