Wow to get that paint to shine like that is must have taken some real elbow grease or did you use a orbital DA? Anyway truck looks great.

Nice improvement, but I kinda liked the aftermarket rims that were on it. But if you were goin for stock, you nailed it.

Stunning work as usual!

By the way - are a civil engineer? I see the white hard hat in you office photo, and assume an engineer of sorts.
