Re: Finally Got to it...

When I got the new steps, the ends hadn't been finished. Chinese parts can be a real pain to work with.
I decided to weld in the ends to match the fender lip.

Re: Finally Got to it...

SUB'D!

When I get home I'll post a pic of my old '71 K10 short fleet that I painted that color back in '88.

Edit: I'll have to look for the old photos. This was the only one I have scanned.
