Re: 69 ranchero restoration

insides of quarters blasted and epoxy primed.



I didn't like how the factory bed floor drains dumped water right on top of the rocker, the water would then have to run forward to the front of the rocker and drain inside, or back and drain inside the rocker. Once inside the rocker it would have to find a drain hole and exit the bottom of the rocker.

We thought this would be a nice improvement.







Of course we will trim those hoses off close to flush with the inner rocker plate. But now the water from the bed floor is routed to the ground rather than the inside of the rocker.



Welding replacement quarters on.

Re: 69 ranchero restoration

I know it's been almost 2 years since this thread was updated, but I would love to see how this truck turned out. Are there more pictures? Would love to see them!
