So, after a couple months of having no time, I was finally able to get back to work on this today. Got some more patching done. All that's left for body work is the rear corners, which I'm dreading. After that, the body comes off the frame one last time to paint the undercarriage and line the inside.

Well, today I decided it was time to get after these rear corners. I've been dreading them since I bought the panels. Took about 3 hours and they turned out pretty nice. Started finish welding everything and ran out of .023 wire so had to call it a day.

So.... you know when your watching a cooking channel and they mix all the ingredients and then throw it the oven, then they pull out the dish they made like an hour before hand? Ta da!!!

Man, I thought you had a visitor, not a new truck. Good on you. CondeFleet.
I bought it from a good friend. The story of this thing goes back to around 2011 ish. I sold some rear quarters and other parts to a random guy in PA. He then sold them to another random guy in PA. That guy built a 40 and then sold it to my buddy in 2014. He hardly ever drove it. About a month ago he said he was going to sell it but was only going to sell it to me. So he gave me a deal I could not pass up. It's not a perfect resto truck, but it's a great driver for the wife and I. Ryan @OTRAMM knows the truck well. He's done a bunch of work on it over the years. It runs like a sewing machine.
