Ok so like after much brainstorming I decided on sheet metal for skins on the doors...with only a snap on window insert...I did this for two reasons...1). I figured the metal would hold up better to the brush and branches....2). Cost......this is after all a truck that will be put thru hell once its done..I'll post some pics here in a minute if I can get POS puter working...lol

So like my one ton has been going..pssht pssht pssht..down the road due to a bad exhaust manifold gasket...so knowing the outcome of messing with 40year old exhaust bolts I proceeded any way...now the passenger side head of my 390 sits on the fab trailer awaiting its time on the drill press.....bad thing is no beer store within walking distance...lol

Well I took some time to work on the daily...my '72 ford f350 which I bought for a song...so it was stop leak time...exhaust leak, oil leak, power steering leak, vacuum leak....you get the idea...so the exhaust leak turned into a head job, which of course I expected that and since I was already replacing intake gasket wasn't that much extra work...just threw it on the trusty ol' drill press and Walla good as new(sorta)...lol....also gave it a little bling...a nice new gm style hei dist., some accel cut to fit 8mm wire's, new plugs, a set of high quality chrome valve covers( I know I know..but my factory ones were toast), new clutch release shaft bushings, and some new door rubber.....and a single flowmaster..I do have to drive the thing after all and I like listening to my music as well as exhaust so didn't want it too loud...but any way...I go up to Memphis on Friday to pick up 2.5tons and a set of 56" tractor tires for the xj...I'm stoked...well that's about it for now...
