    Well, Long story short, my truck decided it needed its belly scratched.
    now its the fun part rebuilding/fixing/modifying. First things first, the teardown. pulling fenders, headliner, windshield, and eventually the back glass. luckily I used to do auto glass so thats the easy part. Getting the new glass to fit is going to be a rough ride.

    So, here are some pics going from before, to low point, to the fixin.

    Hooked up a come-a-long to the A and B pillars and pulled hard enough to get the drivers side tire to lift off the ground. The pillars pulled out and the doors open and close almost as good as new again.

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    Good luck! Are you doing anything special, or just rebuilding and piecing her back together?
