Re: Lets see some before and after pics

Mine looks almost the same. The first pic is before I buffed it out, the second is how it sits now. I have changed the engine, trans, interior, and A/C out, though.

Re: Lets see some before and after pics

My truck actually went through these three steps (since I am only allowed one at a time. The '79 had an LT1 in it, that got sold and I bought the dually (that was going to get the CCSB treatment), that got traded to Scoti for the '74. Whew!
