Re: Bad Idea

That was a nice truck before you even started on it but it's going to be one of the nicest trucks anywhere when you are finished, nice vision man.

Re: Bad Idea

Played a little too much with the air ride last night. I blame the ! I meant to disconnect the arms of the sensors because they serve no purpose right now and two weren't really right length. Well, I ended up busting the one of the arms on one of the sensors. Called Accuair and got another on the way. Have to go out and see if any damage was made to sensor itself. Once again I blame the .

Looking awesome! Really like your build, I would really suggest going with slosh tubs in the front, just got mine driving, and I wish I could roll with it lower.

Was pretty sick so didn't anything done this week. Did talk to the guy I think is gonna paint it. I don't even wanna talk about that. I'm not a body man and not a painter. I won't pretend to ever be. I'm a really good wrench that's about it. I never had anyone show me any of that and I know I don't have the head or nerves to learn. So, the body is in another's hands.
Hey bud, hows it going? I know about the body work pain... I'm elbow deep into mine now... Most of my time is taken up on the road so its slow going and haven't posted any updates until I have something Pic worthy. Had to buy a much bigger compressor with my parts money so I'm back in saving mode for a bit again.
If you wouldn't mind sharing, could you tell me what cell this is and where to get it? You can PM me if you don't want to post.
Thanks brother

Re: Bad Idea

Ok....I'm still here. Not much severe work going on the truck but it's goin.
The air ride is in.
The air management is in.
The engine/tranny are back in.
Most of powder coating is done 95%.
So as of now it's a true roller. The big news is that the cab and doors(new) made their way to the painter today. I felt sick the whole day taking it over there but he'll do a great job and it's something I can't do. When he's got those done I'll pick em up and put cab right back on frame and take rest of body over to him. Didn't want to ask him when he might get it done. I was afraid of answer.....ha. Oh it's gonna be black......kinda.

Re: Bad Idea

Figured the best way to get it there on the dolly was enclosed in something. All my buddies trailers were either in use, full, or too damn big. I used a Uhaul and it worked perfect. Not knowing when I'll get it back this will be the way it comes home so it's out of the weather.

Re: Bad Idea

Sometimes I wish I could afford to send mine to the paint shop.. Home maybe 2 days a week is not getting much done... My cab is damn near ready for paint, but its taking forever. the windshield cowl was a major PITA to get all stripped down. There was only like 6 different paint jobs stacked up on this truck... No sandblaster either...

Cant wait to someday put our trucks side by side and do a photo shoot.

Re: Bad Idea

OK.....kind of an update.
So the cab and the 2 new doors went to the body/paint guy month ago. Cab pretty much what I thought just a few dings and dents here and there and it's about ready for primer and then paint.
As for the doors....well maybe I have the worst luck ever or whatever. Since May I have had my hands on 5 different doors from GoodMark (Triplus box with a GoodMark sticker) and 1 AMD (TriPlus box with an AMD sticker inside of an AMD box!) all came by way of Summit Racing. Good thing they were understanding of what I had went through and gave me every cent back. I ain't talkin about no little dent or maybe a ding or a crease in a corner or some little dumb **** like that. No no no these damn things did not fit. Not any of them had the same problem as the other either. I could go on and on about it but I'll just get pissed off again. I'm sure others have had great luck and I've contacted other dealers for doors which include vendors to this forum. I just completely gave up on the new door idea and the body/painter and I decided to skin and bottom both my old doors. There really wasn't anything too too bad with em but the bottoms were a little banged up and welded on and there was signs of the skin/bottom lip over starting to swell up and push. Plus previous owner shaved the key hole and I always hated that. I got a couple update pics from the body/painter. Sorry for the bit of a rant.
