Sheetmetal work has begun on the body. The cab has been pulled and work has begun. A few areas have been found to have some extensive rust and will need attention.
This shot is in front of the driver door, at the lower corner of the front fender. 68 years of running the road will take its toll. The good part is, the truck will be given an extended life.
The lower rear cab section. The old rust was pulled out and a fresh piece is going to be butt welded in. The door was ground down at the bottom. Rust was bubbling through the paint. VM is going to weld each of the holes and treat the exterior and interior panel so no future rust can come back. Were on a roll!
Stay tuned for the finished repairs.
