Thanks. Yes the bulkhead did warp a little. Built a jig out of 2" box steel and stretched it back into place. I was a little stressed but it was pretty easy to get it back into place. Some waves in the metal by you can't see it after the dash is on place

The chalk mark on the right was the width of the bulkhead after galvanizing, the one on the left was where it needed to be to fit on the outriggers. It was just over an inch short after galvanizing.

Yes I did need to drill out holes etc. it wasn't that bad. About 2-3 hours of work to clean threads, drill holes etc after galvanizing.

A pain to add? Do you rivet those in?

It was a new seat box. Removal of the pans wasn't too bad once I broke through the weatherstripping. They did warp a little during galvanizing so I did need to work them back into shape. Riveting everything was a pain but I'm happy I did it and will be doing it aging soon on another project.

Really like this truck! The jig you made for stretching the bulkhead is brilliant. Ive sent things to Cal West Galvanizing here in Cali that have come back so twisted warped and distorted they were unrepairable. Built some steel doors and windows that oil canned 3-4" after the dip. Threw them away and started over. Sheet metal is the worst. My experience is that anything restricted during the expansion will find a way to move the perimeter. Ive dipped things in fixtures as well and have had inconsistent results. I know you guys in states that "have" weather have to do this. But I would be thinking 50/50 that Ill get my bulkhead back in usable condition. That being said, Cal West is a huge plant that plates freeway bridge parts and they are anything but careful. They have you sign a disclaimer for anything thinner then 1/4"
The rear xmber bumper combo is so tough looking and your paint powder combo looks top notch.

Rear shock hangers blasted and PC. I wish I took before pics as they were very crusty.

I got tired of looking at the rusty calipers and decided to rebuild them. Ordered a stainless rebuild kit so the pistons should be lifetime. Separated the caliper halves, cleaned, media blasted and powder coated. i just need to assemble and install then do it again for the rears.

Wait, what'd you do? Are those the same old bolts? Clean, zinc spray and some black spray?

It couldn't be THAT easy, could it? ;-) They look like they belong on that truck now.

Yes those were the same old rusty bolts. I put them on the cage and couldn't stand the way the looked. Cleaned, media blasted, and powder coated. I'm liking that eastwood hot shot gun.

Did you get their booth or curing light stand? Or do you take it out after prepping?
