not the most interesting update, but here it is
got the fuel filler neck tube ran on the passenger side, personal preference


started working on the bed wall


just for reference i set the shocks about where they will be mounted to the cage that will be between the cab and bed, fuel filler will also be mounted to the cage




then started skinning, the two sections to either side of the center will have removable panels so i can easily get to the shocks or anything else back there

Sick manI'm smack in the middle of a project similar to that right now.I took a cab cut off of an extended cab for my 90 toy and cut an 8 inch piece of the front of my bed so the body lines match up and then welded the back half of the cab to that.When it's done I will be just 4 inches shy of a 4 door minus the doors. Making the doors was just waaaaaaaaay too much work for me bro but way to go that rig is fawking sweet!!!Try not to get burnt out man I'm a little burnt on mine right now, I spent the better half of an afternoon today figuring out the floor in the rear.

Hey what size wire are you using for your sheet metal welding? I'm using .024 with a 75% 25% argon co2 mix can't seem to find anything smaller on the wire though but it seems to be working just fine.

I'm using .030 & same mix on a Lincoln 180C, 1 on line speed on about half way between C & D on power and works perfect for me for just the body sheet

Thank you

Finally got to work on this again. Trying to work out what to do for the tubing when i can't be out working on the body, here's what i came up for the rear hoop.


an updated photoshop of the end goal as far as the body is concerned, this is my motivation


here are the fj40 doors i was working on


rear fenders trimmed/welded and finally done and all capped off




the rear of the cab cleaned up ready for filler & glass
