Its all still just tacked welded and I still have to make 2 dash bars to mount the aluminum plate so I can mount the gages and MSD box and still have to do the rear out side bars to mount the radiator and full cell on the rear deck plate and Rock rails

what are you using to cope the tubes? It looks like you could close your gaps up a little before welding, even though its only a bogger. Looks great though.

Son and I both Don't want a bed on this one it has a catwalk platform (anti slip) on the rear frame rails so it makes it easy to climb on the bed to get to the rear pull point

So in the cold rain we desided it was a good weekend to strip the donor S-10 of it's stearing collum and seats (old ones were Electric leather) while it was out side as we have 3 trucks with 44's and one with 40's and a dune buggy and snow mobile in the barn..
got the collum put in shaft hooked up, new front clip on and ruff cut the fenders and wheel wells to see and plan as I go on how I am makeing the fenders, so far it looks like my PLAN A will work just like I wanted to and be perfect

Flat fender look









THe wheel wells will be added with more metal makeing them flat all the way to the core suport for water proofing, there is still some triming on the fenders and core suport before I start welding , this was all just a ruff cut to see how far I wanted to open it up,





Front grill will be trimed up more also and remolded to cap it all off and give it a clean look and will be painted body color, or MAYBE some accent color,





Rear deck catwalk plating down and cut but still needs some straighting before it gets welded in place, also Took the rear bars off so people Keep from asking about them
