Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

I gotta say, I am picking up A LOT of body work tips from following your build! These are some things I need to watch when its time for re-assembly!

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

I tried adjusting the door in, and I moved the fender forward so I could pull the bottom out some. I think it looks a little better now.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

Tonight I finally got the courage to install my head liner and new trim. I was nervous because I didn't want to break the trim, and I didn't want my head liner falling down. I used some heavy duty spray adhesive, sprayed the inner roof panel and the back side of the head liner, then let it set for about 10 minutes. I honestly think letting it sit was the key. I pushed the head liner to the cab and it stuck pretty much right now. The last time I tried it, the headliner barely stuck to the cab. But last time I only sprayed the head liner and allowed no curing time. I also installed my sun visors. Progress is progress right?





I also dug out my best cowl panel and set it on to see how things were lining up. So far so good, I think.

Are you gonna start a build thread on your 76 CC? I looked for one but couldn't find it.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

I might re-start one. I'll find the original one. I'm hoping to start the rework in about 2 months. If the lift and wheels and tires sell, it might be sooner. We'll see.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

Some more progress. I put the radiator support back on and bolted the fender back on so it would be solid while pulling the dents out. I'm using my Matco stud gun and body hammers to pull these dents. I try to use a hammer and dollie when I can get one in there. Here's some progress pics.








Here's one in the upper roof area.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

I went to my local 67-72 parts guy to purchase a new RH fender to save me some body work time. However, when we pulled the only one he had in stock out of the box, it was not right. On the lower portion of the fender where the body line comes off the wheel arch and goes to the door , the line was crooked and the body line was off and it had some dings in it. He had some repairable OE fenders so I got the best one he had that I could see for sure was an OE fender. I have to fix some rust from the normal battery acid drip on the lower cup, but it's better than the RH fender I currently have. Dang, no cutting time on this one!

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

No real progress, but I did score some 99 up 8 lug chevy wheels off of the local CL. I'm going to take them and get them polished next week, then put them on. I also forgot, a few weeks back I met Eric, Toomuchstuff, in Mn and picked up some sweet Longhorn upper mouldings. Thanks again Eric!

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

This weekend I was busy working on customer trucks so I had a couple guys start removing the bed sides from my donor bed. They almost got it torn apart and only a few bolts are left. Yee haw!

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

Yesterday I did go pick up a new fender and more goodies for the truck. Parts keep piling up, but there just isn't any time for it. I highly doubt it'll be making the All Truck Nats next weekend.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

No real progress on the truck. Just more dust build up on it. I have 2 more customer trucks to get out of the way and then I need to get on this thing. Poor truck is a big azz parts bin now!

Looks nice. Did you find a couple donor steel floors to make a long floor yet?

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

Jud, I got a floor and I'm going to cut it in between the two front cross members. I purchased a bed floor patch and I'm going to use it to add in the missing 6". We'll see how it works.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

No progress yet, but I did purchase an older Meyers 7' snow blade for it. It didn't come with the pump or mounting brackets. That's okay because I want to build a mount with removable pump and head lights. I hate how the old plow mounts have the front bumper pushed out and the pump and stuff hangs on all year. No thanks.




We got a few customer trucks done so I hope to get on this thing soon. I'd like to get it running or painted, or something.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

Ryan, Do they use road salt in your area? Seems like too nice of a truck to salt up and dissolve by driving in the winter. Looking forward to seeing the custom floor.
