1967 Travelall More like it !!!

Looks Good.Nice job of mounting the lights. IIRC you are planning to pull an Airstream with it. Are you going to put on a receiver hitch on it and will it cause a problem with the bumper? Can't wait to see it done.

Dennis the tow hitches that I have looked at all have the receiver below the bumper , Then where

they attached to the frame everyone has been different :)  I plan on a crossmember or two

that attach to the frame and some drop brackets to give me the right height ,

I had a bit of time to work on the doors , got them primed with epoxy primer , then some primer surfacer ,

then wet sanded em'    figured out how to hang them all up for painting , I sprayed the hinges with some etching primer

and will try to spray everything with base coat clear coat all at once ,

Will have to place an order for new door weatherstrip rubber ,windlace, fuzzy stuff ,and the killer is the vent window rubber

which is like $300 for the pair ,  at least all soft parts are easily available :D

I did find some replacements for the barn door hinge grommets ( ford van)  that with some careful trimming

should work ok,  If anyone has seen something more like the original on left let me know please :)

On the rubber flaps do they hinge on the centers where the rib is? I wonder if it would be cheaper to fab an Aluminum plate then bond a piece of rubber to the face for sealing? Try AP air or ACC climate control.

Yes ,  The hinge is just a piece of rod ( pin) about an inch long that sticks in a hole

Hinge pins in package

Bob , Not too hard to make them , I fabbed one out of a fiberglass street sign and my wifes silicone rubber

baking sheet (shhh ! !)    But it does not have the same feel as the original flaps do when closing .

the new ones have a softer rubber edge ( for sealing  ? ) and give a satisfying sound when closed.

Here is whats left of an original rock hard one ,  speaking of original -- I believe the early 60's pickalls

had a metal flap with rubber trim stapled to them ?

Is the flap the same type of rubber

Sorry I missed your question Bob ,   The flaps seem to be made of 2 different stiffnesses?  of rubber .

The inner part quite rigid and the outer flap is quite soft and pliable ( I imagine for sealing )

Managed to get some paint on the doors Napa 5.0 Crossfire basecoat/clear  paint.

Doors are just a pain in the butt to prep ,sand , and paint :)

Here is a pic of before dry and wet sanding and buffing

Here is one after ,,,  I really like how the metallic paint changes shades with the light of day or night

My new friend is 1500 grit dry paper for my DA sander , cuts down on the painstaking wet sanding

time by at least half:)

I think the guys on the assembly line that built your truck would be amazed by that paint.  I know I am.

   Your doing a yeoman's job on that I.H. ,  Lot of pain and waiting and finding . As for wet sanding , anything that can help that process is a God send.

      Looking good , can't wait to see it done ! I think you started about the time I started my P.U. and mine is being done by professional shop and it still needs few items before I get it home.  Hopeful 10/30/17 it will finally be registered by DMV . It has been a process being it was brought in from out of state and restored . Finally had them do a vehicle verification on it ,lets see what happens on the 30ieth.

   BTW, everything for I.H. is more expensive because very few around and lack of after market.  The I.H. shops know what they have .

     Luckily, I found a Donor and it was a salvation. 

   Now anxious to get it home and drive it .

  Best of luck to you , Love seeing your work and talent.  I don't have talent & patients for Automobiles  as I do for tractors.
