Pretty-ing up the crew

after about 15 yrs or so, making sacrifices fer the family, paying off the house and life in general, finally getting around to getting some paint on my crewcab. been waiting a long time for this....
old beast was looking pretty shabby, dents all over it, and the usual rockers and corners. which was a little bit surprising because when i had the body off the frame 10 yrs ago there was no rust that i could find.....

Re: Pretty-ing up the crew

drivers was the worse side, inner is shot as well, same on the pass. started out as a small patch, ended up doing whole inner and out'rs on it too.
i'm wondering if it was helped along or caused by the silly steps i had to put on for wife....(she was wrecking the hinges and pins on the door using it as a pull up handle). cab corners were actually not to bad, just some pin holes- but i want all the rust out, so new corners as well. the rear rockers just needed a re-skinning, everything else was good

Re: Pretty-ing up the crew

thanks guys!
buddy was painting the inside of the cab today, tomorrow we will hang the doors and shoot the outside of the cab, getting exciting now

ya mongo, i wanted to go basic black, but there is only one other truck in my town close to my color green and it aint a square, plus i had already color matched my camper and boat to the stock green on the crew, so what the hay,
i'm just glad it's not dents anymore

Re: Pretty-ing up the crew

Are you going to put the flares back on or the factory chrome trim ?

Re: Pretty-ing up the crew

thanks Dale!
don't have to park it out back under a tarp anymore..

and chrome trim would like nice Gov, but it ain't happening, i've cut my fenders already cause their b.wacker cut-out flares, so ya, flares are going back on. but i did manage to find a pretty mint CUCV brush guard that will be going on it

This is exciting. Milk crate is way cheaper than a new wife.

Re: Pretty-ing up the crew

If you decide to go stock grill you should have this guy update his craigslist ad.

what craigs is this from MTCK?

and stocker it is!
had the billet grille on for 10 yrs, needed a change. reason i orig bought the billet one was cause the stocker was cracked. plus i think it will look better with the stocker than the billet once the brush guard goes on
could'nt stand it, had to wash it down..lol

Re: Pretty-ing up the crew

Craigslist posting was in Anchorage AK. Paint job turned out nice. Itís the little things. I like when the Chevrolet script on the tailgate remains white.
