Re: Lets see some before and after pics

Here are my before pics...

I have mainly be focusing on getting the truck running dependably. I'll be starting on the body work in a few weeks. I want to return it to the original color and factory looks. Its a camper special model, and I want to use it to pull a camper (in the near future).

I agree that it was nice to start with, but you are just dead wrong when you say there isn't an "amazing difference between before and after".

Yeah, I bought it there and also worked there until it went out of business.

They are sitting in the garage with the truck. I have a brand new set of 275/50 and 295/50 BFG T/A's for them. Appliance Fine wires are hard to find. If someone wanted to somehow re-chrome them, I do have a second set that my dad and I used for rollers.

Tonight mine pulled a few cars out of snowbanks, and is sitting in my driveway, icicles on the grille, wheels just white cakes of snow, buried up to the lug nuts in powder, straps and chains wrapped around the bumpers, the outline of the wipers clear in 4 inches of snow on the windshield... A tired warrior of the 1980s in a world of low profile tires, front wheel drive, and plastic bumpers, where people stay in their houses until snowplows move the offending substance from their paths, too helpless to travel without AAA and chains and salt, clearing their windows with longhandled brushes while gently stepping around in the snow trying to stay nice and dry.
