Some more pics of the progress. Finished cleaning everything. Bulkhead and replacement panels covered in POR15. New battery box too.

Looking good. Spray some waxoyl up the pillars on the bulkhead and into the top part of the bulkhead (it is hollow). If you don't want to pay for waxoyl, get a pound of parrifin wax and disolve in a 1/2 gallon to a gallon of mineral spirits and then thicken with a light oil (mineral oil) and use that instead.

Thanks Ron. I have never used Waxoyl before. Does it run when heated? Don't really want "wax" all over the inside of the engine bay. Do you think 1 aerosol can from RN is enough to cover the pillars and top of the bulkhead?

One can will do. You spray the INTERIOR parts of the bulkhead. It might run a bit with the heat (I doubt it once it dries but I have not any heat experience other than the stuff on my crossmember near the tailpipe still looks fine), but it will still leave a coating and will just drip through the inside of the bulkhead.

edit: you want the clear stuff not the black stuff. Clear stuff inside, black stuff outside.

looks nice but you have to weld those bulkhead pans in and refinish after. Why bother with the POR before welding???

I can weld but not very well. I will just bolt and glue them in, this way I can remove them if I needed to. Wanted them covered before glueing.

Fail. Those are a structural section and MUST be welded. They add rigidity to the A pillar, steering, and braking components. If you can't find a welder to fit them for you, then screw them in place with self tappers and take the whole assembly somewhere to be seamed up by someone with the right equipment and skills. You are doing such a nice job, shame to ruin it by taking such a dangerous and short-sighted shortcut.

If he gets proper panel bonding adhesive (expensive and you probably have to clean off the POR where you glue them together) and rivets/bolts them in, it will be as strong as welding, but I agree on it should be welded (which, BTW factory was only spot welded for the most part).

Perhaps I was harsh. But it should be welded. IMHO.

Man this is a hard course! Last test I failed was Fortran. Haha.

Thanks DB and Ron. Your advice is noted and greatly appreciated. I do not think you were being harsh, just honest and shows how much you really care about safety and our trucks. I know I am half-assing some things here. I completely agree. It should be welded. It's just a matter of choosing the "best" of what is available to me. If I could I would buy a new bulkhead. Given the sorry state the original bulkhead was in, it has been running around rotted for the last few years, it seemed to take things in stride and held up ok. I think it is now much stronger than it had been. It will be bolted every 2 inch around the perimeter. Only time will tell.

New brake lines, flex lines, and pads. Rear drum pads and cylinder done a few months ago.

Got the repair panels bolted and glued in. Ended up using 3M 5200 marine adhesive sealant, couldn't find any in black. Should be a pretty solid adhesion. Now I gotta wait 7 days for it to cure before I can paint over them to match.

Also had time to put the bulkhead back on the chassis. Didn't think I would ever get to this point.

Well done. Although I too am in the weld and then galvy team, that looks like it will hold up just fine.

Just out of curiousity why didn't you convert it to LHD while you had it taken down this far? Sorry if you've answered this somewhere and I missed it.

Thanks for all the photos, it's been awesome to watch it all come together.

Alexandra---my Series III is LHD so I was specifically looking for a RHD truck. I kinda like it. And if I ever decide to deliver mail I'll be set! Haha. It is a pain every time I go to my sister's house which has that stupid keypad you have to punch to get in. Keeping the truck in the middle of the road takes a little getting used to. Keep thinking I should be on the left edge of the road and end up driving in both lanes or on the shoulder.

Charles---yes I too agree it should be welded and galvanize. I ended up spreading the adhesive around so it was completely covering the panels, not just in strips as in the picture. If it works as advertise, it should be pretty solid.
