    Just loving life in Alaska. This "shelter" or workshop was manufactured until the mid 1960's, however the shelters have distinct characteristics between the 1950 and 1960 era, and the manufacturers are unique also in hardware used.

    It's a blast from the past, new vs old.

    These electrical connections were heavy.

    Gutting it out, I used 670 rivets on the new aluminum sheets plus special RV caulking.

    Found this on EBay:
    "09-17 DODGE RAM Upper Glove Box Storage Lid Cover Grey Gray . Only cover and cubby. No bolts: one piece on back is broke but other one is good and still works like it should"

    I don't know why Dodge doesn't put one in at the factory.

    This one is in excellent condition.

    A little bit of cleaning will take care of it.

    The seller didn't have the hardware, however I found them, the seller was kinda abrupt, however it was a great deal so I bought it.

    Installed the license plate today, I remembered that the snow level gets high so I installed it with the license plate frame, things are going smoothly.

    The new Ram truck ignition key is in the dash, no biggie if you have a push start, however the regular key ignition is situated where you have a problem with keys rubbing on the dash below the key switch. It can ruin a dash real fast, so the solution is a throwback from the 1960's, a leather key holder, protecting the dash. Call me attention to detail, or some folks may think I'm just nuts, I don't care It's just one small issue that's bugging me.

    Ok, I just got the upper glove box completed.

    This looks funky without the full dash look.

    This is the finished product, now that looks COOL!

    The door took some patients getting it in, setting it into place. It was well worth the part sourcing and have a awesome dash.

    Still needs cleaning, no damage, a nice part.

    The seller on ebay showed this one for sale:

    s-l500 (1)_kindlephoto-138241337.jpg

    As you can see, it shows a light in the photo and when I received the product in the mail, it was just a blank, no light. :(

    When I contacted the seller they said they don't come with lights, which was his only response. Frankly, I bought it because it was reasonable, a light costs $20.00 to buy so thats why I thought it was a sweet deal. So I'm not squeamish about negative feedback.

    On a good note, it was not damaged, so it blends right into the dash looking sweet. :)

    I am anil retentive, so I have the Mopar cleaning products coming in to clean it. :)

    I'm really enjoying the Ram, it's a real awesome truck. I've got it where it's personalised, the workshop is perfect, the truck doesn't sag a bit. I thought it might sag, however it is nice and level.

    i have to work on finding a "accessory hot wire" in the rear of the truck. This way I will be able to run the shop heater while the vehicle is running and off when the truck is shut down. This will make my shop warm, easier to work inside when it's zero degrees outside.
