Are you repairing it? Or whats the plan for the progress.

Maybe garage talk app is not letting me see everything?

Take better pictures =P

You might want to rethink this "no weld" job and reskin that thing. You look to be missing about 10-15% of the sheet metal and I only sort of looked at the last photo...

I am sure that is good advise, considering the amount of time I already have invested in it I am going to finish it, this truck is mainly used in a 15 mile radius, not a lot of highway use, my safety is expired so main concern is to get it to a point where it will pass, this truck is a beater, don't want to put lots of money into it, it is taking a lot of my time though.
