Steve, that is proper restoration work. My cab is fully saturated with mud and grease and asphalt...

Good job! And thanks for the sheet metal.

Hello GMC nuts.
Little update and some progress on the truck.
Been working on finishing the cab and getting it ready for primer. Filled all the drilled holes in the cab from a couple gun racks and other things hung on the interior over the last 60 years. My mig welder got a pretty good workout over July fixing some rust issues on the rears portion of both front fenders. The rear fender braces looked good but the rust came from all the debris trapped in the bottom of the braces on the inside of the fenders. It is a classic spot on these trucks to get cancer.
Disassembled both doors removing the side glass ,regulators and door latch mechanisms too. Found that both doors needed small patches along the bottom in the front and rear. I knew I would find it because the 5 year old paint job was bubbling in those locations. Didnt find any rot through but there were pin holes and the metal was thin there. I think the patches were only 3" by 4" in size maximum. Was able to get rust reformer in behind the patches so that should cure any possibility of that happening again. I plan on wire brushing the inner door area as much as I can get and coat it all in rust reformer then coat with a bedliner material or undercoat. Next I'll reinstall the doors on the cab and check for fit before prepping for primer.
Cheers for now.
Steve

Hi all:
Passenger door alittle more involved. Found rust pitting on the inside of the bottom of the outer door skin so had to do a bit more surgery. Also found some pinholes in the bottom of the door so had to buy a inner door patch as well even though I didnt use too much of it. This is it for my rust repair it is all done now. Took me longer than I thought the truck should of been in primer by now but looks like next year is the plan for paint.
PS: As you can see in the last pic, I had to take more of the bottom of the door skin to maintain the square edges. Bit more work but well worth the time. Pretty impressed with the fit of the patch panels we can get now for these trucks.
