Re: Project "Nether~Storm" 72 swb

Well for an update, I have decided on the paint. Going Flat Rat Rod Black on the out side and Sunrise Red for the interior metal. Black and Grey highlights. Also going to get a set of 17x8 smoothie Wheel Vintique rims, Powdercoated Red. w/Bullet Lugs. Right now Im trying to sell my 91 Fox mustang to fund the rims and help with bagging it. I started working on the tailgate last night... Its pretty rough. but I think I can make it work until I can afford to buy a new one.

Most all of them are good these days *but* ~ you must follow the directions precisely ! folks always skip a step , rush things or make substitutions , then they blame the lining kit when the liner falls off in chunks later .

I've NEVER had a tank liner fail .

Re: Project "Nether~Storm" 72 swb

I'm leaning towards just cleaning it today and filling it with gas, cause in the near (6 months or so) I am really considering doing a fuel tank relocation. Just need mo Moneyz.

Re: Project "Nether~Storm" 72 swb

Quick update, Got my new headers Friday. They are freakin Awesome! Thanks Fred!
Also got the Tailgate put on... and started cleaning it up... Its a Mess! 10 coats of paint and under about 3 coats of that was stickers in the Chevrolet inserts.

Im gonna have to find a better way to strip this paint than using paint stripper. I have applied it 3 times and this is all I have accomplished. FAIL.
Also got my self a lil peep mirror when I visited the Summit store in ATL, GA.

Its small but perfect for me.
I have also decided to wait on the tank until I get my stang sold to just buy a under the bed tank and weld up the side of the cab. Seems kinda pointless to fix something that will just be replaced.

Re: Project "Nether~Storm" 72 swb

the paint stripper will work great on a warm day , if you are using aircraft stripper and a putty knife, now if it is cool it wont work worth a flip !

Alright, I finally got the tailgate stripped, not not without a quart of industrial Paint remover, 4 hrs of cursing the morons that painted it 5 million times without cleaning it and scraping with anything I could get my hands on and finally getting a wire wheel for my grinder and giving it hell.
Below is before....
Mid stripping....

after wire wheel...

and primer... WOOHOO!!!!!

Sorry Im a pic whore and I cant make the pics any smaller...

Re: Project "Nether~Storm" 72 swb

Well I had a Bright idea.... usually not such a good thing. hehe
Seeing as to how I am on such a tight budget these days till I get some stuffs to sell,
I desided to get creative. I have put my Dupont Paint up until I can get everything done right and I am making due with some of my other resorces.... Muuwahahahaha
I started Plastidipping my truck. And it is turning out quite well

Kinda ran out for the moment but its actually looking pretty good,

Then, I thought, "Why not go ahead and put on my new 2.5in drop spindles...


Yes? I think she is looking pretty sexy

Thumbs up Re: Project "Nether~Storm" 72 swb

The dash looks great ! .

I'm an older Man , a Farm Boy in fact so I'll never ' get ' silly wheels on a truck ~ nor will I ever understand bondoed shut tailgates . (saw one of those last night)

I can tell you you're obviously doing a good job and putting in lots of hard work there ~ keep it up .

Thumbs up Re: Free Wheels + Godson = WIN !

O.K. , that's a different kettle of fish .

I'd break any low profile wheels in a day at best , even unloaded because I know that CHEVROLET TRUCKS are the best there is so I drive 'em hard ,much harder than even most V-8 guys .

Some times I think Los Angeles is the testing lab for those East Coast potholes I grew up hating ~ there's NO EXCUSE for this but it is so .
