I like the chopped up razor. With all the animosity about rhinos on things that didn't originally have them and the amount of custom already put into your beasty it is a nice complimentary mod. Did you flare at the top to retain attachment points? I only ask because when I was looking at doing this I was going to chamfer in the top corners creating a rounded square grill. Crew conversion looks great.

thanks guys,i kept 3 of the of the mounting bolts on the grill.thats why it's a 45 degree angle at the top of the grill.the grill was broken on both sides by the lights,if it was'nt broken i would not have done this to a nice looking grill.i'm in the prossess of mounting screen in behind the grill to protect the radiator from debree's.

grill

for the grill i have a semi heavy duty screen that i think is shinny galvinized diomond screen.
do anybody have a good idea how i can attach it. the screen covers 3 bars of the grill at a time so i have molded a few to the rails.
what are some good ways to attach it?
sodering won't stick.what about tack welding,would that work?
any ideas would be appreaciated.

Got to take a look at this thing today. Very nice build up so far. It looks like you are doing a good job making things the way you want them.
It was good meeting ya and when you're ready to lift that cab and bed off let me know. If you need a hand, I will try and get up there to help ya.

working on removing the old cab.removed the windsheild and you can see the rust on the pillers.i'm glad i went with a new cab.i also noticed that their was really no body mounts except a cut up peice of tire.so i will try and use ones off a 87 gw.
the font springs pass side has 8 leafs and divers side has 6 leafs so that will need to be fixed.things should go pretty fast know that i got a new leg(prostetic leg)








7-24
to day i was able to pull the 87 gw steering wheel and the brake peddel and the master cylinder.
and the gas peddel screws are of course rusted in.i figure that i'll get the old cab off this weekand.

so i got the rest of the parts of the cab .so to morrow i will be cutting it up.as for the bed i a'm going to make it about 6' 1'' long and then trim the dakota canpoy to the same measurement. i fugure that 2 cuts and a weld,is better than 5 cuts and 3 welds.
and i would not have to worry about the extra wire splicing.also i would not have to mess with the bed and tailgate so much.

got the cab off,now i'm cleaning the frame from all the oily grime.it's a good rust prohibitor. it looks like the crossmember under the truck will be in the way of the cab. so it looks like i'll have to cut the floor in the cab.

thanks guys,gw alot of good it did me to insulate it. their is a slight modifaction that
i need to do to the cab before i can put it on.you see in a few days.
messed with the bed.i also ended up taking the rust on the inside of the bed panel.
this way it would make it easier to weld the chrome mount holes.
