Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Dropped my truck off at the body shop this morning so they can do some paint matching for the driver door, front fender, bed fender grille, cowl and bed steps that they will be painting. All body work is complete and the parts have been epoxy primed. They should be spraying the color either tomorrow or Monday. I have been waiting since October (dropped the parts off in early January), so I'm pretty excited to get these parts back.

Yea, I heard something like that on one of these threads someplace and I may have to give that a try.

Thanks.

I'm obviously not prepping the engine compartment for a car show, I just want to stop the rust from spreading.

Then I'll drive it with the hood down...nobody has to know how filthy and rusty it is under there.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Installed rear shocks, which was fun. Not. Odd fasteners, where one nut actually was nearly split in half and the bolts were way too short at 2 inches in length. So I replaced the lower shock Grade 5 hardware with Grade 8 that I got a Lowe's.

Now I think the shocks will stay on and I'll not be bust'n a nut ;-)

Seeing that I had soooo much fun with the rears, I am not really looking forward to the fronts. This is because I have to deal with OEM shocks where the upper stud is apart of the shock itself. Plus, if I need more Grade 8 bolts, I got the last two from Lowes! I can't remember the last time Lowes hardware section had their bins full.
