So these trucks sag in the middle, so he fixed the arch on the cab you can see body lines are all good and straight, how ever that front gap on door is to wide so. that will be all filled in as well. Almost there, even the bed will be all straight and looking like a brand new truck.

I welded sheet metal strips to my doors and spent hours shaping the edges.  I didn't get 'em quite as nice as those. 

 

Good to see the truck getting some paint love! 

 

You sticking with the cactus green?  I do like that color a LOT...

I owned a 1950 Willys 2wd pickup that was titty pink back in the 70s.  I got so much shit from my friends about the color I had Earl Schieb paint it baby blue.  That was a fun truck, it had the "F4-134 Hurricane" engine.

No pics but cab is 99% done. Should be just about ready for paint. All those gaps are done and bad ass, way to much metal work is in this truck.lol

The amount of metal work in this truck is insane, and most people will never notice it. The passenger door was weak so he made the whole mid section to bottom all over again and stretched it to shrink and not be so wobbly.  I am blown away really.
