That would make sense. I also don't know much about them. Mine were completely seized and would only move with a hammer so I gave up on them :lol:

Got some more sanding and filling done on the bottom lip of the dash. I was also able to nearly complete the repair in the passenger door pillar where I had filler flake out. Work on the truck has been slow as of late. I've had some side jobs and a plumbing disaster at home that has set me back a bit. Here's hoping for more consistent time on the truck. :lol:

Some more filler happening with the dash and some of the weld seams in the firewall and the kick panels. I'm filling the firewall ones so I can be sure that they are sealed from both sides. It's been terribly slow lately. I've been working on some laundry cabinets that I am building for my wife's cousin and they are taking much more of my time up than I initially expected. I finally got them all built and painted so I can assemble and deliver them and have my Sundays back for truck work. At least for a little while anyway ;):lol:

Looking good, progress is progress. Life has a way of throwing 100 things you don't want to do that get in the way of the one thing you enjoy doing.

Well it seems in true fashion of "Life gets in the way", it is time for my project to have a bit of a pause. Today I loaded the truck up onto the trailer and filled it with as many parts as I could fit into it. It will be going into storage as we have decided to put our house up for sale to build a new one. I still have the new cab at home so I will still hopefully get some work in before we sell the house. On the plus side, the new house will have a much larger work space for me to finish the truck in.:metal:

Thank you. I was actually working a little bit on the cab for the first time in about a month this afternoon. Still picking away at filler so I didn't bother posting about it since I feel it must be getting boring to look at. I plan to post something on here from time to time even if it's just some progress pictures of the house. We still have some time before that happens though. The build will only be starting next spring and we plan to have the current house till maybe August or something.

More space will definitely be nice! Keep chipping away!

It will be very nice. I will have a 14' x 36' Shop space that will be setup for a drive through into the backyard and if needed I can overflow into my parking space for another 12' x 24' :metal:

Well that was the most productive night I've had in a long time on the truck, even though it was 2 steps forward, one step back.:waah: I found that I had missed an "oil can" on the firewall which was causing me issues with my filler so I decided to melt off the filler and primer I had already applied so I could heat shrink the affected area. I only wish I remembered to take a before picture. :dum: Oh well. Haha before I did the heat shrink, I had a 1/4" gap in the middle between the straight edge and the firewall. Much better now! :metal: I was also able to get some more sanding on the kick panels done which brings me very close to being done with marglass inside the cab. Good thing too because I'm about out of the stuff.:lol:
