I spent almost a year in Tonopah working on the road to Silver Peak. Met a lot of i ...

Set up a stove in side and boil a big pot of water. If you’re worried about the heat boil the water outside and pipe the steam in. I used that method to steam some trim wood.

Chad-Let me know if you need some body brackets for safaris to copy. They are 14ga. I was going to try to repop them to be exact copies of OG. But you seem to have the hookup to make affordable stuff.

This a 1961?

Notice the missing beam mounting bolt washers on both sides. I’ll bet there are some missing at the rear of the beam as well. Before you go cutting up your finished body/paintwork, you should install ...
