ok, finally some progress. the roof and pillars are straight, doors are lined up and the cab is now ready for bodywork. paint will soon follow. the roof is not welded on yet, but we will start on that tomarrow. my dad started to straighten the right side rear quarter and the left side is on order. the rear window will be here tomarrow. on to the pics, please ignore my terrible pics, i hate this camera!

got a little bit more done on the truck, we straightened the bed sides and got the left rear quarter ready to be cut off and replaced. after we straightened the bed we took the bed off to get to the back of the cab so that can be fixed. we test fit the rear window to check for alignment, discovered the cab still needs a little tweaking but its coming among well. the new rear quarter arrived today so we will get going on that soon.

ha ha, no BL for this one. maybe, just maybe a leveling kit. lol im at almost $1000 in parts so far. it was $500 for the roof skin, $200 for the rear roof brace and around $300 for the rear quarter. besides the tailgate i need to order its small stuff from here out, i would geuss maybe another $1000.
