Talking Passenger side cap

The passenger side front fender cap was gone on the 68 so I ordered one for it. I installed it today well the outside skin part anyway. After checking several places and making several marks I decided to cut it open and take the inside panel off of it. Most guy's cut it and sliced it open and had to put in a extra piece of metal. This way I didn't have to do any extra metal cuts. I'm glad I did it this way, it fit much better and now I can weld it back in when I get ready to start on the front end.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

I'm learning as I go. I can honestly say I know now why body shops charge so much.

Re: Passenger side cap

Andy, your finding out why it is called body work and not body fun. It is really both though, your doing fine.The last two i put on I split that inner piece into two sections by drilling out the spots it fit a lot better then. I went under the line and I used my green masking tape on the body line as a guide. Jim
