Gnawing was too messy and inconvenient. Plus this method is free, and I need the openings in the right spot for the Td5 dash anyway. Plus I'm half done and would hate to waste the effort!

This weekend's progress consisted of nothing more than extracting the truck from the garage and taking it to the body shop to have the rest of the paint done (and to have some idiosyncrasies fixed).

Getting the truck out was actually a huge hassle. The garage door on this dumb house I rent barely wouldn't allow fitment of the roof, so that was off-site. The doors and stuff were all packed in the back, and the exhaust, driveshafts, etc were all stashed under the truck.

Anyway, so the the truck finally emerges, we get it on the trailer, and drop it off just before the shop closed. If all goes well, I'll see the truck again in a couple weeks and start really putting the body together in earnest!

Ha ha, yeah, the Saturday before Christmas. There's only a couple that are definite-maybes, a couple more who just want to drop by.

Of course, Carey, I want you to feel free to drop by any time!

Here are some pix from today's work party - thanks again to all those who came to help and its a bummer that the weather kept more from showing up. Oh well, no big deal, it just means I have brats left over!

Anyway, it took two tries to get the roof down well. Those new roof gaskets are a beast. Kudos to Josh for drilling out approximately 945 holes in my galvanized vent screens!

I'm actually really pleased with the combo of the blue-green tinted glass, the body color and the black accents. And the silver chequer plate is looking OK too. Its not my first choice, but its a good solution for dented fenders and kids that like to climb.

Good luck with the cage. One of the most painful jobs was getting it on after I had it powder coated. I ended upi having more luck going front to back

Here are some updates. Its amazing how much work there is left to do even at this point. I can't mount my door strikers to the b-pillar because of some design difference, etc etc.

Some quick work keyed the new door locks to the 110's ignition key. I had to pull two wafers and grind down a couple more, but it worked really well.

Anyway, I became almost the happiest guy in the world when I discovered that the rear AC switch fits into the opening for the headlight adjuster switch in the 02+ dash fascia. Now I can extend the wires and control the rear ac from the front.

Panel alignment has been more or less very good. I took lots of measurements and was very careful while putting the tub, bulkhead, and t-pieces on, and it seems to have more or less paid off. I have one rear door that fits very poorly, but it was a re-skin job on a repaired, recycled galvanized door frame, so its not a complete surprise. I'll be in the market for some newer style rear doors in Germany.

There is still a ton of work left, but the body is mostly together. After the first of the year, I'll get the cage finished, the caulking squirted etc. Its nice to have the "V8" stickers back on though!
