Here comes the one that I've been waiting to do for a looooong time. I've owned this truck since 1995. Here's a pic of how it looked (roughly) back then (photo is actually circa '99):
And this is how it looks now, after I dragged it home almost a year ago after it sat for two years at a friend's place about 60 miles North of me, in the high desert of Southern California:
I started tearing into it, and unfortunately got busy with other folk's projects. That's it, this is the year to get it started and get it done.
Anyway, here are a couple of shots of what will probably be the most challenging body repairs on the truck. This is the roof line at the gutter. There is no patch panel available (the gutter itself is fine), I don't want to shave the gutters, and I'd rather not do a lot of cutting in this area, anyway:
Luckily, I can get a little access to the back side:
I know that there are a few sheetmetal surgeons here. How would y'all go about repairing this? I'm completely open to suggestions...
