    never mind... I just checked my build pictures again... this is how I had it the first time...



    which didn't work.... yours is correct!

    BTW on mine... the cable holder for the door release in the picture.... the one towards the front of the door (the right eyelet in the picture) was too far fwd (or right as you look at it) on both brackets... hopefully you don't run into any issue... FFR said they were already tracking the issue and have moved the bracket slightly to accommodate the cables correctly.



    the redesigned window came out of this observation.... you will notice how close the window is the back of the door... went back and forth with Jim on this and his thought in the end was to make the window slightly more narrow... i think this will make the window install process WAY easier!

    Thanks for the pics, Erik. I am going to use door solenoids, no outside door handles. Also I am going to use inside openers like the 33 directly on the latch mechanism instead of cables, if I can. I will document later.

    I am trying to do as much with the door as I can before installing it on the truck. Much to my dismay, I am missing the P/W motor brackets and all the inside door handle stuff as well. FFR will remedy that I am sure. I did find out we are a few weeks from getting seat and interior stuff as well as 4-6 weeks out on door windows. Just thought I would pass that info along. Gives us plenty of time to do other stuff for sure. TW

    In between fixing generators that are going up to the panhandle for the UMC. I was able to install my door solenoids and make them work. I do not like outside door handles on my own vehicles I build. The solenoids are out of the way of everything and easy to adjust or remove. I used the outer door handle cables. Still not sure how to do the inside. I may just use the FFR stuff when it gets here.

    Was able to lightly trim my doors. I use 1/8" tape them silver sharpie. Then I belt sand till the black is gone. I am missing the passenger lower hinge bracket. Somehow I got 2 drivers side ones, LOL. FFR and Dave is sending me the correct part. I did get the drivers door mounted . It opens and closes. Still gap and fit work to be done. I am starting on the grill surround. I mounted 10 rubber bumpers. Trimming next.

    Trimmed the passenger door, waiting on parts. I did a little bit on the hood. (My paint/body guy) Chris coming over tomorrow morning, to give some help and advice on door, hood and radiator shell fitment. Too bad about parts situation. I could have had this out to paint weeks ago. But that is how the ball bounces sometimes. I have an MK4 coming to build on Saturday. Here is a few pics.

    I did just get a "Truck Update" Fedex tracking # that is 18lbs. So maybe some goodies are on the way.

    Finished up my Customer MK4 in 33 days, Woo Hoo! Back on my 35 now. I mounted the radiator shell. I used 10/24 S/S truss screws. I installed rev-nuts in small bracket and tapped grill and top bracket. Came out nice. Working on hood now. Hope to get door on passenger side done this week. Still waiting on parts. Hopefully get parts before Christmas.

    Welcome back. Good to see your progress.
    Could you post a picture of the hinge bracket mount to the grill/radiator support. There seems to be some confusion on how to position the mount.
    Is there some metal backing under the hood mounting spot?
    Keep up the great work
    Thanks, Ralph

    Here is 2 photos. Not easy to see with cover in place. Yes there is metal in hood where hinge brackets go. Hope this helps.

    I installed the hood and it went on perfect first time. I think by using 10-24 allen screws instead of 1/4-20 this allowed for more adjustment. I put the hood in the down position and just installed the carriage bolts. Tightened it all up and it opens and closes fine. Everything lined up perfect the first go. Installed the striker in the hood with rivnuts. Was going to install latch but I never got the latch cover shown in the manual. Another email to Tony at FFR! Here is some more photos.

    Installed my hood prop rod. Working on headlights. I down grade wire size on LED part of the headlight. Makes it much easier to thread wires thru hollow bolt, IMO.

    That's awesome. I like the installation of the prop rod... is that in the manual now? I struggled with that on mine since "somebody" cut a giant hole in the middle of the hood....I finally figured something out... but that looks pretty simple and slick.

    nicely done!

    Finished up the passenger door. Mocked up my custom lights. I like them in the roll pan. We will bevel the bottom of the roll pan to fit right up to them. Working on a panel below the dash for my radio.

    Got an email from Jay at FFR. Door panels and bench seats came in. Should ship soon. No headliner material for inside of cab with kit. I will be removing my cab to fix crack and paint inside. I may install headliner stuff myself on the roof and sides where the carpet and aluminum is not. FYI.

    Are you saying FFR will not be supplying a headliner or they just don’t have them yet?

    Not supplying one. It is up to the builder if he wants one. I will document what I end up doing.

    Today I mocked up the 4 aluminum panels inside the 4 corners of the cab. I trimmed them so I can put bulb seal where they come close to the cab. The carpet kit has carpet for these as well. The carpet kit covers the inside aluminum but not the fiberglass. Does anyone have pictures of how the 34498-99 radiator cowl lower mounts go on the truck? See last photo.

    I thought I had seen some previous comments about the headliner being under development in England.

    Wallace, do the panels in your picture 4, left side of photo, up the lower door opening have a number on them? I do not seem to have these panels in my alum. parts.

    I concur on where do 34498-99 go?

    Great work. Ralph

    Tony sent me my hood latch cover. I engine turned it to match my fire wall. Works fantastic. I am taking all the body stuff off for paint and repair of the crack in the cab we made installing the cab the first time. My body/paint guy Chris will start on the dash, bed panels. I will get the cab back after the crack is fixed. I am a little disappointed no headliner stuff with kit. All the SEMA stuff was custom one off interiors. I am going to use black nylon flock on the inside of the cab where it shows above the covers and carpet. I like the look as well as how easy it is to install. Here is a link to a dash being flocked. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CKsHDOhAZQ

    IMG_3333.JPGIMG_3334.JPG

    We will install the cab after flocking and doors then paint them on the frame. The rest off the frame.

    Tom,
    That "flocking" video had me cracking up. It looks interesting for sure...should be flocking easy to do.

    Wallace you’re a flocking genius. This might very well be the answer to the headliner delima! I am interested to see how it turns out.

    Wallace, thanks for the panel numbers.
    I am also disappointed with the no headliner issue, as I led to believe that it would be available.
    I have coated the back of my bed panels and some other panels with bed liner and I am pleased with how it looks. I am considering using that as my “headliner”. You can always cover it with something else as it becomes available.
    Just a thought.

    I’m confused Tony at FFR is saying these part numbers and panels don’t exist. We’re these on your inventory list?
    Has anyone else received these panels?

    Marv, the panels are listed on my inventory as being included, but they were not. Were not listed on any subsequent POL listings. Looks like we need to inquire.

    Also, any word on the completed assembly manual being shipped.

    We may have to chastise Wallace for making bootleg panels.

    Looks like only the very early trucks got the panels, they were designed in April but them removed from production. Guess we’ll have to make our own.

    Today I removed my cab. I am sending it out Monday to Chris my paint/body man. He needs to fix the crack in the passenger A-pillar. We accidentally did that installing the cab in August. Once I get it back repaired the game plan is install everything back except bed and lights. Then send out for final body fitment and paint.
