I did use a drill to pop the heads off the old ones. The rest of the rivet is still stuck in the bed. I'll try tapping them out.

Any aluminum rivet ok to put it back together? Or am I supposed to use something special?

Outside picture.



The paint looks flat with this shot, but it's not. I can really see now that the "dustless" blasting didn't really do any damage to the truck. The vansides are wavy, but I think they were like that before. Got the truck back home tonight. Just have the doors and some hinges and whatnot left to paint. Then have to put it all back together.

I got the windshield frame all installed. I didn't order new windshield bracket gaskets. So I cut some out of neoprene. Came out pretty mint!



As promised, the BritPart eyebrows don't fit for fucking shit! The worst part was that I replaced the right hand outer wing skin with a new BritPart piece, and that was the WORST FITTING ONE!!! My buddy Benny helped me get these things in. He's a hyper meticulous machinist. Thank God he was around, because I would've killed someone before I finished them. He probably spent 4 hours mounting them up. Lot of drilling, reaming and cutting on the new flares.



Took so long we had to move the operation inside.



Got a bunch of the wiring and lighting done, started figuring out the door hinges, mirrors and stuff.


The truck is starting to look super sharp and I can't wait to drive it again. My wedding is in 1 week and hope to drive it to the reception with my bride!

In no way is this mocking you, I LOVE that this is being done 1 week before your wedding. Truck looks awesome.
