This is where the seam of the window pillar is, this was a butt weld with .030 wire, all the welding pictured was done by my friend who has by far more experience doing this kind of work. This is the area where it became evidently obvious that no two trucks are assembled exactly the same. The roof pillar is a little larger than the tub section at the same points. This difference was minor but noticeable, I alighted the important areas which was the exterior, and windshield flange. The other areas like the door jamb will require slight filling to compensate. The interior section is covered with plastic so that is of no consequence, the jamb is only slightly stepped. Instead of grinding flush in that area we decided that fill would be better as to not affect the integrity of the pillar.
