Thanks guys - feels really good to be able to drive it but I still have a lot of sorting out to do!

I love the galvy bulkhead too - that and the galvanized cappings on the tub look just right IMO.

I may eventually get the sliders galvy'd but not sure on the Rockware bumper.

Looks great the way it is. The parts that should be galvanized are. Galvanized bumpers, cages, sliders etc look strange

If you galvy the sliders and bumper will you paint them black?

Yea - that I am leaning that way the more I think about it. The powder on the bumper is still in good shape too. Plus I think it looks pretty clean and simple.

I may reconfigure the sliders and add a cage to the front cab. When and if I may get the sliders galv'd for ultimate protection. And see what that looks like - can always powder on top if it looks kooky.

And thanks for all the compliments! Still a lot to do but feels good!

Did some work on the interior of the hood.

The metal frame was rusty and there was some crappy insulation glued onto the aluminum.

Pulled the frame and sent it to powder and D/A'd the aluminum. Rattle canned it with Rustoleum aluminum primer and their professional series grey.

I got a roll of peel and stick from Lowes and laid it down on the aluminum where the frame would contact. Then got some adhesive and installed the frame. I used sealed pop rivets and put it all together.

Next will be installing the B-Quiet Hliner.

I'm using the same stuff on both side of the trans tunnel, both sides of the front floors and all three seat box lids. Excellent idea with the underside of the bonnet frame. That's smarts.
