Throw some triple bypass shocks on this bitch and desert race it! Each update to this gets better, would be neat to see some bedsides on the rear just for kicks and remove them for the trail.

Tim and I discussed the rear section and my big thing was that it looked proportioned to the truck knowing it may be somewhat of a sacrifice. After looking at it, I think he pulled it off really nice with no harm to departure. I've seen so many that looked funny to me because the rear tubing was really short compared to the cab length.

Also teh front fenders need more trimming..... other than that? BA!!
I'm getting a new set of fenders and hood. I'm going to paint up both sets, SPARES. The originals had all the rust trimmed out before he got it, so he didn't have much to work with. The new set will be trimmed more proportioned to the axle.

On to that big hole I cut out...

We knew that the sacrifice in this build was going to be the body of the truck. And that big hole in the floor looks intimidating and is probably the scariest decision a home fabricator can make. I know I built a ton of stuff before I ever had the nerve to hack out a firewall in pursuit of better performance... The best advice I can give is to get out the sawzaw and cut that shit up. After it's out, you'll have no choice but to figure out how to cover it back up Even if your sheet metal fab looks like shit, your rig will outperform your buddies

With the engine this far back, the best option for working on it was going to be through the cab. So, instead of building in a new firewall, I wanted to build a removable hump more like what's in a van. This way, if you need to pull the plugs after you've taken the fast route back to the bottom of the hill... hehe, you don't have to use foul language to take care of it.

To get started, I built in a "sealing lip" all the way around the opening... YES, this was a pain in the ass. but after it is in, building the cover isn't as bad.

Once I had the lip in the truck I just started making templates out of thin material similar to what your 24 pack of Mt Dew comes in... take your time and build it one piece at a time. You'll find that even if your template fits perfect, once you transfer it to the steel and bend it, it's never exactly like the original template. Just build that little section, then tack it in. Then start making your next little template.... I do have a brake here in the shop, but most of these bends can be (and were) done in just a vice or the edge of the work bench. So don't think you can't do it because you don't have a shear and a brake. Use what you've got. Thin sheet metal isn't hard to manipulate. This is 18 guage BTW.







here is the inside of it... you can see that there are a few places I overlapped the sheet metal to make it easier to weld up. You can also see a piece of template material in place, this was the last piece to make to finish it up.

With the cover in place, it sets on the lip in the truck all the way around. A little foam tape (like what you put on you bed rails between a topper) on the lip in the truck is all it should need to seal it up pretty nicely. Of course there will be a few button head bolts around the bottom to secure it down and pull it down onto the seal.

What kind of tricks do you have for the Pedal assembly? Will it fit, or will you have to bend the pedals?

I took the brake pedal out of the truck and changed the bend direction to go around the left side of the column instead of the right. The pedal will need to be lengthened out a little, but making it longer will allow you to put a little more force on the pedal... The step in the cover is for a throttle pedal to mount to, but it could also be place directly under the column. I'm going to leave final pedal placement up to Allen. There is still 17" between the flat in the cover and the kick panel, 13" between the side of the cover and the kick pannel... so plenty of room to do it either way. Keep in mind this is an automatic now, so no clutch pedal to deal with.

-Tim

I will agree on cutting the wall as to be one of the scariest things to do. Your work made it look easy.

I think that I will try this down the road. Thanks for the shot of confidence

Here's a few more pics of the truck when Allen came to pick it up. He brought the doors with him so we could see it with the doors on too.

Loaded up...

We discussed lot's of crazy ideas to finish out the build... Allen doesn't admit it, but he has some pretty good fab skills. I have no doubt he will make the final details killer. Looking foreword to seeing the finished product.
