I STILL have sand in my ears…

…but, the truck is done!   Well, at least the cab and frame are.  Now, the equally tedious job of cleaning all that silica sand (which makes fish eye’s in paint) out of every nook, cranny, crack and crevice can begin.   And, there are LOTS of crannys, nooks, and hidden spaces just packed FULL of sand.  Including my ears.

I’m pleased with how it looks bare, and no more surprises showed up, like the holes in the driver’s door.  The culprit here turns out to be tar paper sound deadener which pulled partially loose, trapping moisture (in the desert of So Cal?) between it, the door skin and a sheet metal brace.  I’m tempted to just try to braze the pinholes full, rather than cut a patch panel.  We’ll see.

More photos when the frame is painted and the engine in…
