A few of my TLC club buddies came over to help me part the tub from the chassis. Not super hard, but also not possible without help or a gantry. I don't have a gantry, so the friends did the trick.
Thanks a million guys! Now I need to finish stripping both tub and chassis in prep for media blasting. Then begins the body work and metal repair on the tub and chassis mods and powder coating... or POR15. I am still undecided on the final chassis coating.

The Tub & Body Panels Made it Home It has been a long time coming, but the tub and most of the panels are home! I'm still waiting on the tailgate and doors to be completed, and I might do late-style doors instead of my early-style ones. This is because the vent windows won't be usable with the cage and the window frames are pretty bad. We'll see. I had to bolt something on, so I installed the fuel filler and cap. LOTS more to come!
Progress Continues Both bedsides are replaced and the rear sill is next. I also picked up a small batch of powder coated parts and got to visit with "Vulcan" the Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff). He looks and barks like a fierce beast, but he is a total sweetheart. Next up for the 40? Refitting the springs on the chassis, the rear sill and sill cover, LOTS of unneeded hole patching in the floor pans, and patching the passenger side outer sill.
