Sorry to hear and see pictures of the roll Jim! It may be a product of the game we play but it still sucks! There might be a few usable parts on my parts 60 you can have. I think the windshield is still whole.....not sure about how many pits though... :flop::bawl:

Everyone okay?

let me know what you need for the windshield and if you have a right rear door glass.
thats about all i need, plus a bit of tugging, pulling and hammering :thumb:

i was the only one in the 60.

Glad you're OK, Jim. Looks like the damage wasn't too bad for what happened. :eek:

IMHO, piecing in the parts (B pillar, windshield frame) would be the easiest. CIM auto body is worth the drive.

Is piecing in part, including the windshield frame easier than doing a body swap? Bummer on the roll. It looks like a great opportunity to show off your fab skills and do a chop top with a wicked full roll cage :)

I have all the body dollies and forming tools you could ever want. I know it's a long drive, but your welcome to come up.

(i can't loan them out, as my new direction in art is making bowls and formed sculptures)

oh - and you owe me for copying the front bumper from my truck.......

no body swap or body shop.
gonna pound it out and roll with it.

not that concerned about making it look "pretty"
it's about function, not fashion :thumb:

got a great idea to tube out some front fenders for it :D

If Jim had been in that situation with an 80 instead, the worse thing that could have happened is he might have spilled his Caramel Machiatto! :rolleyes: :lmao:

Thanks for meeting me with your parts and helping him on his way.

You are but I guess to satisfy your needs you can visualize Jims truck lying on its back....but then again that would be a Cruiser porn thing and you wouldn't understand.... :rolleyes:

and now it sits at home tonight.

FYI. this was alot of work to get back on the road.
i did it the cheap way, not cause i'm cheap. but because i don't has the funds to just send it to a body shop and have it fixed.
i enjoyed fixing it to my best abilaty and it is fine with me how it turned out.
it was still alot of unwanted extra work.

thanks to those who helped :bowdown:
