    Body mount bolts

    I didn't get any bolts with my Dynastar Body Mount Kit, so I ordered some factory ones ...I'm disappointed that they don't appear to be plated except for the nuts (top left). Bummed.

    Replacement Rocker Panels

    Agreed, If I don't get a decent resolution on this I am fine with going on as much social media as I can with my experiences. I'm giving them a chance to fix it, ball is in their court. Like @gsnyder said, lining up the floor panels....it doesn't look good for them fitting either.

    Bib Hinge Pin Question

    Was this pin bare metal from the factory? What are folks doing (if anything) on a refurb/resto truck? I'm waffling between drilling the pin out and powder-coating it it, or just greasing the crap out of it.

    Stainless Steel Windshield/Doors/Hood/Amby FJ40 Hinge Pins with Bronze Bushings.

    Heat did the trick! Very excited for my pins to arrive (even though it'll be likely over a year before they get onto the truck) Thanks for the tips.

    Stainless Steel Windshield/Doors/Hood/Amby FJ40 Hinge Pins with Bronze Bushings.

    Hey all, I got all my door and hood hinge pins out ok, but the windshield ones are killing me! I've cut off the nub at either end, soaked on penetrating oil and have been wailing on the with a hammer over a socket and can barely make it move. I don't have a press, any tips?

    Replacement Rocker Panels

    Thanks for sharing, glad to know I'm not crazy. It's fairly annoying that we need to do that extra work for what should essentially be a lego piece to fit in.

    Replacement Rocker Panels

    Just lining up my Real Steel rockers and something isn't right. It's aligned but about 1/2" too short (yes I ordered the appropriate year). Anyone else have similar issues?

    Ya, it was rough at first but I was using this piece to see how good my autobody skills are prior to tackling the project truck.

    Rear Sill Question and Quarter Panel Tips

    Awesome write up, I'm in the cutting stage right now. Maybe a stupid question: how did you drop the fuel tank? On my 1980, I am stuck on trying to get the skid plate out of the way, the bend on the front-of-the-truck end keeps getting caught on the cross-member. Then the tank...it looks like...
