Re: Show them trucks before and after!

This truck started out nice looking with white bumpers. Then hard times and a lot of miles, and a front end collision brought it to ugliness. NOW getting back to purdy again. It'd go so much quicker if it'd fit in the garage.

Re: Show them trucks before and after!

Mine is a good example of how some minor things can make a big difference. All I did was change out all the old rusty white trim and bumpers to new chrome/stainless/aluminum stuff. Made a nice difference.
