Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

I think I found the place I want to have paint my pickup. Has anyone heard of Monster Paint FX? I was feeling a little burnt out, but got over the hump and I'm ready to paint and finish putting the interior in.

Last of the two-tone pics....Hopefully

Very nice, it looks sweet now. It'll just be that much better once repainted!

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

I had the carpet in the door panels replaced with leather to match the new seats.

I have new woodgrain inserts and it looks like the map pocket will need some love (it looks old and dirty now too)

Hey there. Where did you find those wood grain parts? Bezel and dash piece?

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

I just kept searching the internet.

The NOS bezel was from someone on this site. The NOS dash piece was found at vintage parts inc in Wisconsin. The drivers door was found at a dealership in Texas.

The passenger side door was actually cut from another NOS dash piece because it does not exist anywhere!

I bought most of this before prices went through the roof on NOS parts. Everything except the last dash trim piece was priced at normal dealership prices.

It would really bum me out if aftermarket started making 89-91 trim after the fact!

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

Are you going solid black? I liked the grey two tone also (kind of gives it a factory look), but the truck is gorgeous either way.

Re: 1991 Crew Cab Short Bed Build

Thanks Jonboy. I keep looking at two tones and like the 'old school' look of it (my first pickup was a 2 toned 86), but I'm pretty sure I'm going all black.

I'm just really digging that trim, makes me sigh a little when I see it. I'm a sucker for wood grain.

The way it was 2 toned in the front kind of made it look like it was a "what if" kind of truck, as in "what if GM built this in '91?". Adding all of the options you have kind of enforces that, and it was my favorite 2 tone on these trucks. It will look tough either way, though.

That was my idea also... a "what if" truck.

I don't know, I love these solid black and 2 tone black and silver. Good luck deciding.

Uh yeah, sorry about all of that. I still vote 2 tone with the grey.
