Body Work on roof, passenger side and rear panel is close enough for a high build primer.

This is the condensed version.... There has been a lot of other stuff that almost had me throw in the towel. Like when I pulled the "T" trim out of the roof joint and found the joint so rotted that I had to seal weld the complete joint. Or like after I chopped and fitted the door passenger side door that looked awesome outside but was a wreck with wide ass gaps on the inside. I had to "clad" the jam to make it look right......

So there ya have it....that's where I am at the moment. I'm waiting for a driver side door to show up and then I can finish the left side and get the whole cab in high build. I have to do the driverside sill and the complete floor. Have to decide on a drive train (I's like a Hemi or Nailhead), front end (transverse leaf spring) rear end (no idea) so I can do a mock up and start building a frame.

I'd love to hear from some of you guys on rear frame kick up, front z or stack,
which front end would be best.....ect.

Thanks for looking and thanks for any ideas you might have for me.

Very interested in hearing from Bruno....
