Why did you not used new series middle doors as a based to make the half doors? RN has them for <$300 each and based on a junk set I have, it seems like the top could be cut off and a cap and two tubes welded in and a cut down trim from a ST front door would work.

What am I missing? Is it just that my way would be ron good not ECR good?

edit: BTW way, great work as always on BR#5

Those repo doors do not fit well enough for our trucks. They are about 1/2" too short in overall length.
If we could find NOS genuine 109 middle doors we would do that, but those are NLA.

Awesome work! I'm just a little jealous...
Can galvie be painted? Personally, I'm not sure if I would like the contrast of the galvie frame/crossmember with the black tow hitch/rear step, and I'll bet it looks better in person! Just curious.

Galv can be painted and stick long term, but its an odd process. There are too many folks who will debate the process here, so I will only say that we work with a company that has long term experience in making paint stick to galv (like guys who paint galvanized bridge parts and such) and it works without issue and I have seen teh science to back it up.
The T supports and bulkhead on BR #5 are galvanized.

Most customers like the bare galv frame. Its like a street cred to show off your galv frame.

I like a bare galv frame because it makes it easy to spot problems rather than everything under the truck being black. Personal taste though.

Mike,

You sure you don't need a general counsel/shop hand/parts guy?



Great work as always.

Ron

How come you used the rubber seals on the feet of the cage? I thought you now used the black sealant stuff.

Earlier build.
The Black 110 has been in progress for quite some time. We did the cage a long time ago, now just finishing up the EFI and such to complete the project.

I would think that since you didn't deliver it yet and you now do the new seals you would change them? Maybe because I am reading the posts. Owner probably doesnt care

Great work! What sliding windows are those on the rear of the three door? My stationary windows are for the birds. They are small and makes for a stuffy hot ride.

It would mean cage tear down and re-install.
Customer doesn't want to spend the extra $.

Our goal is to make each truck better and better. If we started working backwards and making changes to older builds we would never move forward. Example: BR#5 is far superior to BR #1 in all kinds of ways, and BR #6 will be superior to BR #5... its just the way it goes as we try to be better.

The day the trucks don't get better one to the next is the day I retire.

I believe they are called African Spec windows. Its a LR part. The same as a 110 PU rear window on one side and the mirror on the other. Typically on long term back order.

This is my favorite one so far- love the ex-mod theme. See if you can persuade more folks with the cash to do more of these! Not so much into the elongated beach runners, but to each his own I guess.

No don't get me wrong the truck is awesome. I jsut figured since it wasn't delivered yet you would do it. I guess I don't understand the seals. I thought you would take the rubber feet off and use some sealant etc

Ok, now I have saved this pic as background on my computer. Great looking truck. Is this the one that copley has listed for sale? I'd like to hear more about this truck. I'll trade you a Shelby GT500 and very low mile 97 D-90
