I am not sure about just the cab but I had the entire body blasted at once it was 500. The guy I went to is kinda a rip off when it comes to most things, I wouldn't be surprised if you could find a place cheaper. Hope this helps. And thanks, I am kinda new to the forum and I gotta say, it is very encouraging to have everyone compliment the work that you do, it definitely gives me motivation to keep on diggin.

Re: 72 Cheyenne Super First Project

Thanks guys, it's been kinda hard to get stuff done on the truck cause I have been busy helping my dad on the super late model. I can do a good bit of the work on the frame like cutting material, welding, grinding and such. But my dad doesn't trust me laying down beads that are in high stress areas like the c notch so I kinda have to wait for him on that one. I have been doing some thinking and I am going off to college in August and I would really like to have the truck drivable by then. I know that is kinda a long shot but this summer I plan on working a ton and getting a lot of stuff done on it. I just don't want to leave for school and have a ton of parts laying all over the place. I am stuck on a color decision tho. Originally I wanted to do hugger orange and white like a ton of other people do but I kinda want to be different. Plus I don't really want to pay for all that molding that comes with a two tone paint job. My dad suggested doing just the roof white and the rest of the truck orange but idk. Any ideas? I'll post some pictures of what I was thinking

Re: 72 Cheyenne Super First Project

The first one is my original idea, the second one is my dad's idea, third one makes me wish I kept my fenders, and the last one kinda looks like an old truck my dad used to have

Re: 72 Cheyenne Super First Project

Re: 72 Cheyenne Super First Project

I also like the blue and white but I already got black interior. I think I am gonna go with the hugger orange with the white top (like the 2nd one) but leave off the molding until I can afford it. That way it will still look complete. I should be getting a ton of parts in the mail either tomorrow or early next week. I'll have pictures posted when I get the parts

Hard to go wrong on those wheels. I'm also a big fan of the 2 tone

Haha, shhhhh. No I would get the torque thrusts that look just like that but they aren't cobra. I didn't even realize that those were cobra until after I posted it, they are basically the same wheel. Um, I think either 22's in the back and 20's in the front or 22's all around
Still debating on the paint, decisions decisions....

They actually make rebuild kits for the heater control but I got two other ones from my grandpa and I am going to make one nice one out of the three that I have. If you want whatever I have left to fix yours, I would be more then willing to give it to you

Haha, if it was my shop I would let you. That tiny shop that you saw when you came up is long gone. We are now in a 5800 sq/ft shop with a paint booth
But 90% of the shop is full of race cars so i get the back corner, haha

The 04 car is a kid named Ryan Reed out of Bakersfield, CA. He moved out to NC to make a name for himself in racing and my dad is managing the team for him. He has dibs on most of the shop but they are pretty cool and don't mind a few parts laying around here and there. And yes, Jerry is a really good guy. I remember when I stared working on the rust repair on my cab, we only had the right side rocker panel replacement so I called him up and he had a left side at my house the next day.
