Re: off it goes

Abolutely amazing work and I also canīt wait to see the truck back together and painted. I dig that you left the cab seem and will keep the trim, rain gutters and door handles! I will try to do the same with my truck, but nowhere near this level, actually galaxies away!

But amazing does not even do this truck justice, it is the best square I have seen built yet! Hands down!

Re: off it goes

thank you....it's been a long road, but the end is in sight, I've tried to maintain the GM beauty of these trucks that makes us all love them and just enhance and clean up some things along the way. I want it so the average person just thinks it's a nice clean truck but for enthusiasts, they will look at it for hours and keep noticing little things we did. thanks again for the kind words, I really appreciate it.

Hello Chromaholic. I just found this thread yesterday and finally finished going through it today. I am in awe of the work you and your buddy have done. I would love to see this truck since i don't live that far away. Thank-you for taking the time to post all the progress and answering everyone's questions.

Re: off it goes

I'm excited because you're excited, but that looks like guide coat on there?

I can't wait to see this thing in color to highlight all that awesome work you guys have put in on the body!

Re: off it goes

For blocking we use a polyester primer made by Evercoat called Slicksand.

Love the Slicksand/G2. It's a nice crutch for my mediocre Bondo skills.

Re: off it goes

All the NOS moldings have been test fit to the truck, we have a pencil line around all the moldings so that the trim will maintain a constant gap with the body lines of the truck

Re: off it goes

Like they say, "It's ALL in the DETAILS!" This truck has so many, most will be missed by the general public once it is finished.

Outstanding work as always!

Re: off it goes

I think you missed a spot... :P

It looks great! I don't know anything about body work, but from the looks of the raw metal I didn't imagine that you would have to cover it completely with filler.

I really can't wait to see this thing in color! It is going to be killer!

thanks man...it's amazing how great my buddy is at metal fab, but if you want perfection that's the way you get it. This is the stuff all the big time hot rod builders don't show, they always make it sound like there is no filler in the their cars. That's bull, if you want perfection it's all in the bodywork and paint prep...
