Thought I would share this I've just bought a 1967 Morris fgk30 pickup that needs a full restoration the cab is in quite a bad shape and there doesn't seem to be any panels available for them so I am going to have ago at making my own after reading threads in the how to.so went out and bought a welder and some other bits and pieces to get me started. Will put some photos of project and progress as I go .
Sorry for the way the photos come on the wrong way round but shure you can get the picture of how much work is involved and as you can see I'm outside so weather isn't great at the moment. nearly every part of the cab needs attention apart from the roof the chassis and running gear are all good as the previous owner had started this project and renewed all the brakes had a new wiring loom made and new reconditioned radiator done.so hopefully the weather will get a bit better soon see if I can make some progress.
Thanks for the comments tips been following that site with panel making find it very helpful. yes they were called the the thrupenny bit cab along with angle cab class house and been tolt some people called them fa--y looker when woman had skirts on because of the Windows around the bottom lol
Had a couple of hours on making a sheet metal bender and a side panel for the fg this is how I started shaping wooden sleeper off cuts into the shape of the panel to use as a buck or template then bent and hammerd the metal over it I'm using 1.2mm metal sheet. this was my first time trying to make panels and was quite happy how it turned out.
