Very nice ,That's a lot of painting at one time you must have a tired arm. But then when I was your age I was painting BIG trucks. Sprayed 6 gallons one day.

Re: Shucks First Build

Truck is turning out very nice! The bed wood finish works perfect with the blue on the truck.

What are your plans for the interior?

Thanks! As for the interior I have many plans but the bank account can't really afford it now. Wanting new everything basically... from gauges to a reupholstered seat. but for now it has new door panels, a seat cover and a dash cover will settle for now. I can at least drive the truck and have a driving project!

Thanks everyone else, means a lot!

I like it. Shop around and you can find some quality stuff at a good price. Call the place and tell them what you are doing you never know they might give you a few bucks off.

Re: Shucks First Build

Got some interior work done. Basically how it'll be for awhile till I can find some cash. New wing windows installed and all brand new seals. Good fit for everything!




I'm aware the door handles aren't on, they're staying off until the truck gets wetsanded and buffed

That B pillar looks like it's been sanded and buffed. Nice work. When buffing try to clean the compound out of the gaps and crevices as you go as once it dries up it is tougher to clean.

WOW! Just WOW! That turned out nice. I will be honest, I had my concerns in the beginning of this build. You have learned quickly along the way and been diligent about correcting your mistakes. You should be extremely proud of your work and the results of your persistence.
