The truck is looking great!!
I practically crapped my pants.
Most likely going to have to completely refinish the hood. Possibly fenders too.

A little more than a few scratches, man that sucks.

Re: 80 Scottsdale build

I feel like I've lost motivation since the hood incident but I have so much to still do. Fix the paint. Fix the bumpers. Swap the grille. Install the cab and tailgate trim. Repair loose body moldings. Fix short in column and cruise control. Fix transmission leak. Install sway bars. Slosh tubz so I can get the front lower. I'm sure there is more but that gets started.

Yeah it'll be here before you know it. Not sure if it'll be making an appearance or not. I have 2 others that will probably be there.

Re: 80 Scottsdale build

Same here. I still haven't gotten the hood painted or my little mishap (chip & deform ) fixed. Hell, I haven't even had the truck out of the garage since last year

No I did not bag the truck. I'm still contemplating that.

Re: 80 Scottsdale build

My truck sat idle for quite a while. At the last minute I decided I wanted to get it out of storage and take it to @c10sinthepark. I dusted off the cobwebs and gave it a bath. Had the paint chips and scratches from last years incident touched up. Although I had a long checklist of wants before I went, none of those items were going to keep me from making the trip. A group of 4 from Clovis all traveled together and we had a great time. The c10s gathering is just that and is not a show with awards. Although this year the coordinators of the event picked their top 50. To my surprise I was chose to be one of those 50 of some of the nicest trucks around. The event totaled out at 751 trucks. The top 50 were invited to park in the square for the after party. Now that I have returned I have decided it's time to get back to that checklist.

I have searched high and low and cannot find the actual color. I will keep looking. I took the picture of the Reyna Bros truck to my local paint store and they mixed it.
