    Nothing yet, those two photos are different doors. All we did was add the little door lock grommets, lol..

    Which separation ? I see the backing for the window fuzzy is slightly bent but down lower on the door frame nearly all Rancheros and Fords of that era develop stress fractures. If the door is in reasonable alignment and shuts easily I wouldn't worry about that. If you have cracks in the door sheetmetal further down by the latch by all means repair those before the latch rips out of the door.
    Stress fractures are just part of the price you pay when you have a unitized body of any brand. Being picky about the issue makes sense and I'm glad Ribald brought it up because it is always easier to repair those fractures before they get big.

    Thanks, guys. I always appreciate any comments or feedback about Cochise, because that is the only way I'm gonna get him fixed up.

    Some of them were pretty bad. I think they look much better now. I still have 4 more in storage Im gonna do. You can tell(at least hopefully, lol) which ones are "before" and which ones are "after".

    Thanks, guys! John, I sure appreciate the rings. I've been working so much that I still haven't been able to run up to Pop's house yet, but when I do I'll have those and Mitch's tailgate handle to get for Cochise. I really like that some of his parts will be from other Ranchero people that I "know". It sorta makes him a group effort. : )

    I really like that truck. My first automobile was a 1960 Ford F-100 4x4....it was given the nickname "the beast"....partly because I was (and still am) a big Iron Maiden fan and partly because the truck was a beast.

    That's a rarity these days--to see a factory 4X4 this old but in this great a condition and clean.
