April 1,2002- Began to remove the rear interior sheetmetal piece below the rear doors.Most of the nuts are partially
rusted away so it looks like I will have to cut the bolts to get it off.
April 3,2002- Continuing the process of removing the rear interior sheetmetal section that goes below the rear doors.
I'm hoping to get this piece removed this week so I can get it to the guy to start the copying process.
Rear sheetmetal assembly is removed from the truck.Now I just need to break it down into individual pieces before taking it
to the sheetmetal guy.Stay tuned.
I broke it down and took it to the sheetmetal guy this evening.He took a good look at all of the pieces.The ones he is going
to make first are shown in the picture.
The guy is ready to start making the first pieces.It will take about a week to finish the first copy.I need to get a count
of the people who want one for sure.If we are only going to make a couple, he is going to do them freehand.If more people
than that are going to want them, he is going to make a hammerform.Once he does that he will be able to make a copy in a day
or two.I'm working on the ordering page today and should have it up and running by tomorrow.
April 5,2002 Prices are set and fabrication has begun on the first 3 pieces.
April 6,2002 Started designing the new piece to replace CA-002,003, and the bumper assy.
April 15,2002 Enough orders have been recieved to get a price break on these pieces.I'll be revising the prices on
the ordering page.If I can get a few more orders I will be able to get them down a little more.
April 26,2002 There has been a small delay.The guy has decided to go it on his own and has leased his own shop.He will
probably be busy moving in and setting up for the next week or so.Please be patient.This is a good thing. Now he will be able
to get them done faster once he's set up!
The piece on the right is the bumper filler panel(CA-003).The large piece on the left is actually two seperate pieces welded
together. The inside piece(CA-001) and the outside piece(CA-002 or CA-004).They will be made and sold seperately.After looking
at the parts closely he has determined that the original quoted price was too low.Its going to be more because of the compound
