With paint work coming what color are you thinking? Staying with lime green or another color.

For the base I got a can of Krylon ďsatin brown bootsĒ and for the gel stain I went with Old Masters golden oak. For the clear coat I am using an Old masters Spar-marine varnish rattle can in gloss.

I am still undecided between some kind of orange and the lime green

What's going on with Rusty? I've been offline for a while and don't see any updates since late last year.

Hi everyone, itís been a long year, sorry I havenít updated yíall on Rusty. Rusty has not been kicked to the curb, I am in the process of getting body work and paint done. It has been at the shop for about 5 months now :( but I hope to have it finished within 2 months. Right now itís almost prepped and ready for primer. I am going with the original Lime green by the way. I really do believe these old trucks have soul and character, Rusty turned right on after being parked for months. I canít wait to show you all when itís done with paint!

Wow, he naked!

you can use a free product called IrfanView to rotate and save your pics prior to posting to ensure they turn out up right, it sucks that we have to do that but that's the iPhone world these days

Rusty is out of the body shop. I just need to adjust the Eddie Motorsport hood hinges I got and a new windshield. Pretty happy with how it turned out

New windshield in, I bought some wheels and tires they should come in this week. Iíd like to put a QA1 coil over suspension but it is pretty expensive so Iím going to save up for that. Still havenít adjusted the hinges but Iím happy with the paint job.
