Hey troy no offense taken, actually doing most of the work myself, having russ do the paint and giving advice or hand when needed. getting ready to touch up the dash and hopefully have it ready for the painting soon.

Well, just make sure you both keep moving - Russ' shop seems to have this "habit" of collecting perpetual under-construction garage queens...

For the most part it has been. The carpet and rattle trap were not a needed thing but makes the truck much nicer inside. What kind of drugs the PO was on to take the spray paint to the dash with out masking,cleaning anything boggles my mind. I also wonder who put the front clip on the truck and left a 1 inch+ gap between the firewall and inner fenders. Not much of the stuff was able to be used and have a decent truck...


Kirk any idea on whats with the frame on the drivers front corner? After this ones done and mine is moving we can do more cab swaps.

Now its a bad bed with a trashed cab. The airnet moves the bedsides in and out. The bed sides are fixable but the bed floor is rigged for sure!

Hey, sounds like the PO of my junk... I wonder if he sold this and moved on to yours.

Probably your best choice with the rats nest that the PO left for you with that wiring.

Looks great!
