Thanks everyone. I've been busy with planning and part searching. I was hoping to find the lower rad valance and the drivers inner fender, but so far no luck finding anything used. I spent a couple of hours on the inner fender this morning, couple more to go but I think it's going to look ok. Somebody had welded a heavy plate and bracket to it, so it took a bit of "massaging" to get it back to presentable. It has been welded and bolted, the bolts stretched the inner fender and broken it in several places. A little more work and hopefully it will look like the previous debacle wasn't even there.....

The inner fender is starting to come around to what you want.

Progress...I haven't been back to the inner fender, but did take an interest in getting the axles, springs, shocks etc removed from the frame. I scribed the location of the existing wheels so I'll know where the new stuff goes when I get it. I'm a bit obsessed with wheel/wheel opening location so humour me! I've been playing with getting the dents in the front fenders bumped out, and spent a couple of hours fixing this little rotten spot, front bottom lip of the passenger front fender.

N.B. Having trouble uploading pictures? I'll try another avenue...

So you finally worked up the nerve to fire up the welder.
Did it make your heart flutter.
Seriously. That patch looks great.
And you are not the only obsessed with wheel/wheel openings. Keep in mind that most trucks have the rear wheel a bit forward in the opening so that when you load weight into the box and the springs compress the wheel moves back towards the center on the wheel opening.
