Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Passenger side door jamb is complete. Just a small amount of grinding/welding to do on the bottom of the rocker and this side is completed!

Haha I have so many different trucks worth of parts going on here. I probably have almost all the colours available on these trucks. I will try to keep the progress coming somewhat steady for you. Thanks for the compliments! Just the motivation I was needing.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Ok so I have been trying to get some progress in this past week on the cab. It has been very intermittent due to the fact that I have been on call with work which has had me running around like crazy. I did manage to get half of the roof seam all welded up and started to strip the paint from the roof. Not alot of progress but it's something.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

I got some good motivation today to get some more done on the cab. Went to see my brother's freshly painted cab after work. So after supper I went out and started attacking the remainder of the old paint on the roof. Didn't quite get it all off but I got a huge chunk done. Hoping to prime the passenger half of the cab in the coming weeks. Sorry for the sideways picture, not sure how to flip them from my phone.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Looks like your brothers truck is coming along. Before you know it, you’ll be there too. The paint stripping is a big chore, but looks like you’re making good progress. Keep the pictures/progress coming, Ive been enjoying following along

Thanks man! At least the roof is the only paint I have to strip. Quite happy that I bought this cab already blasted. Saved me a ton of time and mess. I'll try to keep the progress steady

Finished stripping the paint off the roof last night and continued with welding the roof seam.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Thank you TA.

Today was a good progress day! I got the rest of the roof seam welded shut as well as ground down. After that, I went back to the passenger side and did the grinding under the rocker. Im very impressed with how my work in flattening the pinch seam at the bottom of the rocker turned out. I was also able to get a preliminary fit of the drivers door and fender all done. It's not horrible, though I did have to bend the window frame out about 1/2" as it was touching the pinch weld and there was no way that I would have fit the weatherstripping in there. As far as gaps go, the upper gaps are quite large and will require addressing once I hit body work stage. The rear gaps are quite nice as are the front gaps between door and fender. Bottom gaps are obviously non exsistant at this time.

My lower fender mounting bolt lined up nicely with where I had assumed the lower pillar would sit so that is good news. Next is both lower pillar repairs.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

The bottom of that rocker looks awesome. I always hated that part hanging down lower then the bottom of the front fender. How much time do you have in removing that. Your cab looks great and a DIY guy. Just read your build through nice work! I will be checking in with you.

Thanks for the compliments. It really didn't take that long to do it. All I did was flatten the bottom of the rocker, fold over the inner rocker and thats really all there was to it. The more difficult part was the bottom of the cab corner and that wasn't overly difficult either. Just a small cut and re weld.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Last night it was time for the lower front pillar repair. I tried as much as I could to make it look like the factory piece as these things look like junk from aftermarket. As I knew would happen, I had to modify the location of the hole for the fender mount. Not quite ready for install yet but I'd say it's close.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

I have the day off of work today so I'm getting stuff done! The front lower pillar is all welded in and ground down. The rear pillar is tacked in and ready to be cut apart on the outside edge and modified to have the curve that is required to weld in the rocker. Hopefully I'll be done the rear pillar by the end of the day. Forgot to take a picture of the rear pillar tacked in.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

I got the lower pillar patch welded in for the most part. I had to splice the outer edge and expand it 5/16" to line up with the existing panel and make the curve to follow the rocker panel. I ended up having to cut the lip that accepts the cab corner off and run it through my dad's shrinking die to get it to have the curve as well. This is what I was unable to do on the passenger side as I did not catch this until the cab corner was welded in. It isn't nessacary but it will make my cab corner install go better. I did not have time to get the corrected lip welded back on but once I do, I will be ready for cab corner and rocker. Second side is going much quicker than the first.

The rear pillar is complete. Time to see what sort of fun the cab corner is going to be.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

I was playing around with cab corner fitment tonight and I gotta say, this side looks promising. I should not have to section it at all. So far I've got it cut down close to size and removed the vertical lip at the bottom. I tried to take some better pictures of my process for that so hopefully that will help if anyone was unsure before.
