The all elusive paint work is the one thing that is the worst having to wait for. Its been more than 6 or 8 months now still no color. Hoping for pictures any day from Anthony.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

Why is it so painful to get a truck painted. This is the worst part of restoration. Still waiting and waiting.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

I feel for you, but if it makes you feel any better it took me about a year to get my truck all painted myself because of waiting for the right weather, do-overs, cut & buff - multiple times for some parts, etc. Plus, yours will end up having a whole lot better job! What they've done sure looks nice.
