I found a place today that says they can bend up my two bed floor stiffeners. I dropped off a little piece and the best one of the angle fender mounts. I am awaiting their quote (scared). I cut all the remaining fender hanger brackets off today. None of the holes in the bed were square. They used carriage bolts and slotted holes. I'm probably going to go back with a carriage style bolt with an Allen head so I can remove the fenders if I need to. Lots of patching needs to be done. I have an appointment with the dustless blasting guys on Saturday and I am going to wait and tackle that after its nice clean bare metal. I have lots of spot welds to cut and I figure they will be easier to locate once its blasted.






My bed skirts are a mess... I am not sure how exactly to tackle those but I guess I can cross that bridge when I come to it. The tops of some of my stake pockets are rotted off and I am pretty sure the ones for the willys beds are the same. I just have a hard time stomaching the price. Going to have to figure out something. BJ's is working on a quote for freight for two new hand laid fiberglass bed fenders

Shiny as a new formally rusted penny

Good side







I had them do the back of the cab and the rockers and clean up some surface rust on the bottom of the doors.

I got all the old hat channel off today. I figured something out cutting out all those spot welds. If you drill a little pilot hole it helps keep the cutter from walking.



Grinded all the little dimples off and wanted to start patching holes in the bed today but it was raining and I didn't want to pull the truck out to get the welder in since the back of the cab is bare metal.... Tiny garage :cry:


New hat channel looks great. Place that bent it did a nice job.

600 miles in my Cherokee today... On my last fuel stop my debit card didn't work anymore. I stopped so many times at gas stations out of state I guess they thought my card was stolen.


I see amc blue in the motor mount holes and the freeze plug that was covered by the motor mount. Hoping that means it's not been cracked open yet.

More new parts showed up today. Walck's 4wd sent me a new tailgate, hinges, chains and chain covers. I have used them for my FC150 parts and highly recommend them for any old jeep parts.

Got a lot done today. Patched all the bad spots in the bed except one. I'll have to do it from the top.





The back panel was 1/8th and I only had 2" strips so I had to add two together....

Then I carried the whole thing outside and washed it for 30 minutes (still didn't get all the sand out) and slathered it down with mastercoat metal prep. Supposed to keep it from rusting for a year. I am ready to install the hat channels and I wanted to coat and seal the hat channels and the area under them.

Had a couple big boxes show up today from BJ's off-road. I jumped the gun a tad on ordering these as the bed is far from ready to hang them.



They seem to be built better than the originals. They also have a lip/overlap that won't require the rusted out angle iron. I'm thinking of getting some aluminum plate and using it like a washer on the inside of the fenders lip for the mounting bolts.

I've been working about 60 hours a week since first of March and the truck is just sitting... When work slows down this summer I plan to get back at it. I did get a roll bar and some very good bed skirts from rocklaurence.

Got the new hat channel welded on in the original spots and the holes drilled for the bolts. Put the bed on the truck and moved it into the attached garage where I have room to work on it and walk around it.

Wow, really enjoyed the photos of this build.

they tell the whole story quickly and easily.

jealous of the skills and jealous that you are going to have

a step side J-10 and i am not !!!

these things look like real life tonka toys ( or stompers )

especially the ones with bold body colors and the HONCHO graphics.

that was a dang good trade ( the chevy for the J-10 )

Thanks, I am hoping to make some progress on this thing once again. My new hours are 7-3:30 and it allows for a good amount of time in the evenings to get some stuff done.

Wow! i have been looking for a tailgate for over 1 1/2 years nobody on here ever mentioned Walck's. Amazing, the lack of communication amongst FSjeepers.
