    Wayne , we all know you CAN do fantastic sheet metal ..........with your eyes closed
    Thank you Wayne , my vision for the truck from the start was to turn out something that could possibly look factory ????????.So it will be smoothed and painted .I can't wait to get stuck into bodywork .

    Guys , again I am truly staggered by your comments .I hope the finished product is worth the effort
    When I made the hidden hinge assembly I was really happy with the way it turned out apart from one thing .The doors have no check straps .The truck didn't come with any ( not sure if they would have worked with these hinges????)
    I could have fitted two bolts to the hinges to stop the doors opening too far , but the most annoying thing was that the doors had a tendency to slowly close to half way position.
    So I thought how easy would it be to fit a modern check strap .............
    After a search through the images on Google on took the plunge and ordered a pair of Citroen C3 check straps . I forgot to take pics of the mounting for the check strap ( I will take one when I do the other side ) but it was a piece of 20mm x 40mm box section with part of the larger face machined away to get to the nuts .Then a piece of the door frame was cut away and this mounting was welded in . The pin mounting was a bit tricky but now it works very well .
    My next job is to get the door window surround to fit

    Tonight task.
    I have said many times before but very little came with the truck, but something that did come with it was the inner door frame surrounds .The were stripped of paint by the previous owner but never primed .Each side comes as two pieces with a small cover clip that hides the join .
    I wanted to make the surround one piece if possible .


    I screwed the two pieces onto the door using the original holes .
    With the raked chop and lengthening the doors they didn't really stand much chance of fitting .

    I did think that the bead line at the top was easy to reproduce in the bead roller but the smallest set of dies were too big to match (probably doesn't really show in the pic but it really is too big )

    So I had to form it in the jaws of the vice , but now it's one piece and ready to move on to the next task .

    Did you tighten up the bigger bead in the vice or start from scratch?
