I'd also never welded sheet metal before so I about an hour of this I spent on cutting out some small squares and welding them together to figure out what I wanted for settings and how easy it is to burn through.

I still need to finish welding it (still have 2 small sections missing) then get some seam sealer on it and at least prime it and I'll be done with this side but I'm pretty happy with it for now. I feel like I need bigger tires now though.















Holy **** it looks like someone turned a rabid beaver loose on your quarter panels !!!

Just kidding Motor. Nice job. Certainly better than I would probably do.

I actually need to finish that side. There's still a couple small spots that are open and I need to finish welding everything so I can seam seal and it and sand/paint it before the rust gets out of hand. I got stuck working Saturdays til 2 so my shop time is limited to 3 hours on Saturdays now unfortunately and I haven't had the time or money to **** with it due to ****ing with the new truck.

Junkyard score. **** a roof.

Also I'm not saying this should influence certain vehicle of the month contests but it totally should.

The tailgate looks sweet! Hopefully it doesn't influence that monthly vehicle contest.

Operations manager put a quick end to it before I could yesterday. Luckily he's not here today and I've got three free hours in the shop when I get off at 2.

Didn't get a chance to get into welding anything up. ****ed up and cut my tail light harness off on the passenger side behind the connection. Not the end of the world but annoying.

I know someone with an industrial sowing machine so I'm going to do a canvas top for it. Until then I've got the camper shell off my Dakota I sold still. It's the same size as the Comanche beds so I'm hoping I can cut that down to length and run it as a hard top til then.
