We considered whether to part this truck out (it has salvaged title) or put it back on the road...could’ve made money parting it out. With only 8,600 miles and a ‘like new’ all over; Debbie has decided to drive it.
After spending a couple days in the frame shop, they had to pull the frame a little, align the front end, they said everything is good. I welded in a new structural inner fender. Here is the progress on it...ready to paint when the weather gets better.
I had to use my spare right front fender... so I’m in search of another right front fender.

Did you go with a new inner structure or a used one? Wondering how difficult that job was?
I bought a parts truck and Drilled the spot welds out, then welded it back in the black truck. It’s a job but not real bad. I have changed body parts before (I use to restore the 60’s mustangs).

So glad you decided to save the truck! With that low milage it would have been a shame to part it out! Like the others, I admire your skill set! Look forward to seeing at a Rally. Maybe at Maggie Valley? 😉

I was wondering because I have a front inner structure and wasn't sure if it was worth keeping around or not. Now I know it is worth it.
Great job on it and thank you for the updates. This is good to show they can be repaired rather then becoming parts trucks.
