What are your plans for the doors now that you have stretched the cab?

 

suicide half rear doors like a modern 1.5 cab

"new" fenders pounded "straight" and installed.  Now I can make sure the fender is centered on the wheel and align everything and finish the cab mounts.

Well, the 94 is almost stripped down to nothing,   Gotta pull the trany and driveshafts yet for me (trany for core exchange).  Then it's pull the axles off for sale and chop the frame up for scrap.  Body parts go to the scrap yard tomorrow.

Torched the springs to get the chassis to sit right (bunch of parts missing that would weigh enough to compress the front suspension).  And then the cab mounts got put in.  Even with the shop at a "cool" 75°, outside hit near 100° yesterday, it wasn't all that comfortable with the humidity so high, then ad the torch and welding heat!  ?page=9&tab=comments

been a while...life has again gotten in the way.  I hope to spend more hours this winter on the project.

 

removed the cab (glad I figured out this EASY way vs. what I was originally thinking) and gave the frame a degreasing power wash...now at least I won't be full of it head to toe when I work in him.

Been TOO long since I worked on TODD.  Right now in between wood projects so time to grind down some early welds and redo so I'm not embarrassed by them!  And cut out all the cross bracing as it's no longer needed and I can now climb around inside w/o being a contortionist!

It is going to be worth a lot when it is completed.

 

I cannot remember.... you extended the cab to make it a quad cab? Is that right?

Does look good. I dont like being a contortionist either. The body just doesnt bend as well as it used to.

Looks great; you obviously have a knack or experience with metal mods.  Keep it coming.  A question, your posts have a definite separation between one post to the next; I have a project I'm posting on but they all run together.  How do you get them "separated" where they can be responded to individually?  Don't mean to take time from your project but could use "skill enhancement"; I'm obviously not good on the computer.  Again, super, I love your posts.

After fighting and fighting to get the passenger door to line up right, I called the neighbor.  He runs his own hot rod shop and has built MANY over the years.  He's been kind enough to help me when I needed for nothing but a beer and a smile.  I think he just likes helping me learn.  Regardless, he came over and we chatted, and we tried, we got the torch out and bent hinges, and tried...and finally came to the conclusion below.  I think he loved the pucker factor I had when I resigned myself to doing the cuts.   Also we will likely work on flattening the top of the window to follow the now long flat section of the roof to make it look more pleasing.

This project is a lot of work, but it is the coolest truck ever. Look at the 3 windows in the rear and quad cab to boot. Best figure on a good security system for it also.
