Paul how come in photo #10 you have the brace between the fenders (runs behind the grille) but it's not in any other photo? Is it not necessary?

Had to remove it to get it to fit on the car chassis the body is mounted on it was hitting the shock tower. Normally you would not remove it.

Paul,
What type of filler are you using and what type of paint and color is the red? It looks fantastic!

Thanks!

Lynn in these picks I used the Tamiya filler witch is ok way better than that green squad puddy but I use Evercoat green label filler it is great for plastics or small metal repaired.

Thanks Paul. Need to come up with a paint scheme for my next rebuild. Purple truck is just not cutting it! Oh, I did not paint it- bought it that color.

Paul - question on the paint job...

Masking off for the 2 tone, I see you're using blue tape (probably low stick) to cover the majority of the base paint.

BUT what is that yellow tape you use at the actual edge of color separation?

Ok yes the blue tape is 3m tape i dont use that any more as it can still mar paint so I use maksing film like a body shop would to cover a car to do a fender respray. the Yellow is the best fine line out there way better than and 3m I have used of the last 15 years it is tamiya tape for painting bodys..

Great how to Paul! what kind of primer do you use? I used that same red paint and it the primer and the black paint I used all 3 pealed. is there something you do to the body after you fill and sand it to prep it for paint?

Thanks

I use dupla filler primer to do the final blocking and then on top of that I use Dupont finish primer sealer this will stop the lifting of the paint and then I use Dupont paints to in rattle cans but I use base coat clear not signal stage.

I have the same cab off of a walmart special. It could give me some more practice on bodywork. I always wanted to do a day cab too.
