After much talking about BD'ing my truck with friends etc, my girl finally talked me into it. :rant: I have never done this before, but have done quite a bit of reading andhave been usind different threads from Wicked94, Redd, Ricky etc... to kind of grasp wtf i am doing.

The plan is traditional to the rockers. Then I will have to do something about the bed, and I need to figure out my hood.

And since she talked me into this, she is DW'ing with me :D we have been at it for a couple weekends now.

On to the pics:

since the rockers were cooked, as well as the DS cab corner I decided to replace those before i started to cut up the cab at all.

then we laid out the floor cuts. I cut anticipating laying the fillers back 1.5". But, I screwed up with the first cut on the sides. I set the cut too close to the sill, and cut right through the threaded fitting for the seatbelt bolt. So I will be moving those.

For the firewall, I have to move so much stuff around because of the V8, it is going to just be easier to rebuild the firewall. But I didnt hack the whole firewall out-I will section it out piece by piece, so I have a referenc of where GM had located stuff on the firewall.

I got the DS tub in place yesterday... cut most of the ds firewall out.
I am going to finish the fillers on the sides and then get to work on finishing the tubs and the firewall.
My biggest issue right now is making room for the distributor, and still keeping wipers.

Flattie- do you have any pics of how you rebuild the cab mounts?

that would be nice....
truck is going to look good. i like how your bed is setup. those irocs look kleen on the truck too. any plans on paint color?
I love those damn wheels. Sucks the bigger IROCS all have the front backspacing (4.75"), or I would be running 18/20's.

The plan for paint is the factory color. It is the color I shot the engine bay, "gold nugget metallic". I am going back to stock badges, rubber molding etc..
