I decided I needed to wait on the media blasting of the frame. I am going to do the custom work first, then take it for media blasting. I did manage to get all the body panels stripped and ready for media blasting. I also got my first of many patch panels.
I guess original color was white. Bleh!
Gas tank floor pan patch panel.
Semi-shiny intake manifold. I had it coated in hi temp "Durashine" exhaust coating to match the header. The Throttle body got the same treatment, but isn't ready to come home quite yet.

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.
