    Ef5

    This is the rebuild thread of m truck i lost in the tornado. It was a 74 courier belonging to my buddy Kenny from OK. At the time he had spent several years building it before he brought it to me to have some sheetmetal work done. I was in the middle of raising the hood and fenders to fit the "huge" 17s under it.






    Then on may 22nd an F5 tornado leveled the shop.


    A few months went by and when i was back in another shop the rebuild began. We decided to change it up a bit, kenny loved what i had done with my crewcab yota and wanted me to build his truck as a crewcab. We also decided to leave 1'' of rocker this time and not chop the top.

    We began by mocking the cabs up to see what looked right.


    Then I started making things permanent. I formed new substructures that matched the stock ones i removed.

    Formed new inner and outer rockers.




    Made a new beefier B pillar




    Decided to swing the rear doors suicide style. I also swapped the doors from side to side to flip the handles foward so there would be no bodywork to do.



    Had to shave the stock recess for the latches.

    Then squared off the door corners


    Replaced the bottom of the back wall and cut out cancer.




    And how it sits now.


    Im trying to build this thing to be as it would have been a factory option truck. No crazy mods to distract from the work already being done, nothing that reaches out and smacks you in the face as an obvious modification. The suicide doors are nessesary on this truck but there was still vehicles from this era with suicide rears so i think theyre fitting. Gonna try to have this done for SEMA 2012 if we can get a company to have us in their booth.
