Amazing truck. You definitely don't see them this clean, ever.

 

No, we made the stands too. They need to be extra wide so they don't tip over. I guess you could buy some and modify them.

Thanks Stoff for the kind words! I'm on the home stretch I've got door panels and flooring left to cross off the list then she's pretty damn done.

Get yourself a $50 needle scaler. They are great for getting into the corners. https://www.amazon.com/Central-Pneumatic-Compact-Needle-Scaler/dp/B004Z3XX1Q

 

 

 

OK, I am quoting you again on this, that is some of the best money I have ever spent, I don't remember what I paid but it was not very much, I could have had the whole bottom of the truck done by now just using that needle scaler, sure that vibrating scraper I bought was nice, but this tool flies thru that undercoating and I don't even press very hard, I was leaning into the scraper and it didn't take it all off like this needle scaler does, it does not work as good on oily undercoating, but the scraper easily does that and it is only oily within 3 inches of the firewall, the rest is dry on the bottom.

Good tool to have. A bit noisy though...

 

I use mine about once a week.

 

I wear ear plugs for two reasons, the noise, and to keep that crap out of my ear canals.

I purchased Muscle Maniac's firewall insulation kit and it's very nice. Holes for the clips fit dead nuts and I'm excited for a little noise dampening. I also cut my own kick panels to fit the space nice and sung with noise dampening mats behind. Rubber flooring will happen eventually but all the upholstery shops are backed up couple months out. Strangely enough COVID has been good to them and they're all busier than ever.

If the panel board has the same surface on both sides and depending on the folding process, the panels can possibly be folded in opposite direction and the insulation pad glued onto the opposite side and you have an opposite product. Truly opposite sheetmetal aircraft parts are made in that way, generally.

Seems like this should be very possible. Also, heads-up, the factory makes these to order and they take five weeks to ship.
