Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

So no 2nd color this week. I did get my garage cleaned out last Friday. Also been thinking about seat & door panel material and color. I might go with Vinyl Doeskin or possibly Black.

I have 2 sets of door panels to work with. I'm thinking about having them covered with vinyl so the modifications for the power window and door lock controls don't show but I have not thought much about it until I get my truck back.

I hear you but I have been thinking about the interior more and more!!! I don't plan to have a door lock button inside since I only have 2 doors, but I will have keyless entry with a key fob.
I believe you will need it with the crewy....unless you have long arms!!!hahaha

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

After a month and half waiting for paint to be finished I finally got a hold of Anthony today and he said he is closing down his shop at the end of the year. so I asked him when is a good day to pick up my truck so I can have someone else complete the work and he asked me to give him until September 20 so I said okay. 2 and half week finished or not I will pick up my truck.

The last few time I leaned on him he got work done. Only 3 steps left to finish.

1- paint the 2nd color
2- pin stripe it
3- clear Coat
should take a good week of work.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

Well Just as I expected nothing happened with finishing the paint and today is the 20th. Wednesday Anthony said it would be in the spray booth by today. All I herd today is crickets.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

With threat of power outages the last couple of days I decided to have Anthony hold off on completing the paint until PG&E stops the rolling black outs. so I won't be picking up my truck Friday.
