Whew. I disassembled the stock seats, sliced and diced the legs to fit the reworked floor pans and painted the frames with the snow cammo theme. Next up is the center console. Itíll get reworked to be an actual center console.







1st Step:




Edit:

I buttoned up the rhino fascia, so it can come off for final welding and prep for paint. Welding included a few nuts that had broken off so now itís back to as it should be for bolting on to all the stock locations- even the M series fenders.

I also dropped the floor of the console and tact welded in a fresh piece. Then I ran out of daylight.

About a 1/2 gallon of polyurethane white dumped on the brick. So much for ďcleaning upĒ.

If I can finish laying some brick down, I can get back to work on the truck.

Nice, another M715 that is local to me. We need to do a cruise this next spring or summer with yours and mine.

That would be pretty cool. I never see anything else in the area on the road!

I did fix the brick and started on the 69 telescoping tilt caddy column.

I opted to work inside today due to the downpour of rain.

The grey canvas door panels turned out pretty good. Iíll cover the top of the center console and even redo the seat upholstery with this stuff.



Edit:

The rain stopped soon enough so the brick could dry out:

Cut off the column ignition switch and auto tranny shifter, fiberglassed the innards, layed down a coat of filler to smooth it out two, or three days ago, then sanded her this afternoon, then applied another thin coat of filler to get the imperfections.



More sanding to come.
