    Thanks, it was the first pan I have ever attempted. The beads are not even, some are crooked but it does have strength. I stood in the pan and jumped up and down hanging out of the car. Ill test it a couple more times this wimter when the cold shrinks it some.

    Finished the driver side pans. Installed the emergency brake assembly. Will be starting on the passenger pans soon. In the meantime ive been collecting my panel switches and lights. I am working out the dimensions for these. If anyone has the correct oem dimensions, pm me please




    Thanks to Paul for his mad cad skillz LOL.

    Hopefully I can get the correct oem measurements for these two panels instead of trying to reverse measure it from all the oem switches and vents and lights I have collected.
    Trying to do it from pictures is a complete nightmare because of the angle of the photo, the angle distance either increases or decreases but at difference percentages.
    The LP400 series being such a rare beast is a double edge sword.

    Thanks Don.
    Wish I had a lift.
    I jacked it up as high as I could get it and using a creeper went from one end to the other using sander, paint/rust remover, etc.. then went back and rust restore primed it.
    My next step is to finish the metal work on the underside of the pans and then use a type of truck bed liner on the underside. I wont worry about all that until maybe the spring.
    My winter project is upgrading the front brakes and master cylinder and starting to install all the interior parts.

    More to come....
