My truck got paroled from paint prison today

I've been waiting since July to get my truck back from the painter and he finally finished up yesterday and I went and picked it up today. Been a long time coming and it looks great. I didn't give him the bed at this point because he just didn't have the capacity to do the whole truck all at once I'll bring him the bed in a few weeks when he can catch up on some of the smaller jobs.

I did a little custom emblem on the glove box door. I'm really happy with how that came out

Looks great! It's always a treat when you can start re-assembling after paint. That is the fun part.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

I agree, Get a good grade of masking tape and put a couple of layers along the inside and outside of the window opening.

Re: My truck got paroled from paint prison today

Got a huge rush of nostalgia when I saw the pics! Looks EXACTLY like mine when I got it back and started the reassembly. Looks great! Love the glove box emblem!
