Thanks for asking. My truck has a three inch chop ,custom van roof bed cover, hidden door hinges ,louvers in the hood , I could go on and on with all the little body mods I've done. I didn't want to take to much away from the original body .It sits on a ranger frame ( I will never do that again it was a money thing at the time ) I'm running a 350/350 combo shhhhh don't tell anyone.Keep up the good work Mrfiboy.

Some rear cab corner repairs.

Finally metal work done.

Shot some sealer on the inside.

Spent a week now on the cab body, getting ready for primer.

Hoping full primer this weekend.

I got my booth dialed in for final paint.

Don't expect the whole truck to be like this LOL

Plain old gray works for the wife and I. Took us over a month and 2 other sample colors to decide.

Little wall art to keep me motivated

wet sanding the cab Oh Boy!!!! Hats off to painters and bodymen, never would I have the patience for this.

Jambs firewall, first, did not have the guts to try and spray the whole thing in one shot.

Glad I did the job in 2 parts, 46 oz of paint total, 2 coats.

Hooray for doing a great job. When you get to this phase the fun will be over and it will be work to avoid getting run into. A senior woman driving a Honda ran into me to the tune of $6700. Oh well, it got foxed.

Got the cab outside, nice to have space again in my garage.

Hopefully get the other pcs all painted up in the next week or 2.

Next project the hood.

I had already soaked all the bolts, etc. in PB Blaster awhile back so after my friendly tap with a hammer, all came out well except for one.

Started by wire brushing the inside first, followed by a thorough cleaning and a couple coats 2K epoxy sealer.

Top of the hood got my favorite stripper applied (Citristripper) and than most paint scrapped off with a plastic squeegee. Thoroughly washed and a little metal repair, hammered out a couple minor dents and thoroughly cleaned again.

2 coats high build primer followed by a 400 wet sand job. Finally 3 coats PPG DelFleet Essentials Gray single stage polyurethane enamel.

Another weekend down.

Over on the hamb, they have a thread on photoshopping. "the moose" was kind enough to add wide whites and black accents to my stolen pic of a gray 1940 truck.

The wife was really wanting black running boards, pin stripe, and grill. I was not totally convinced. But as always she was right.

Along with smoked glass side/back glass I believe it'll be just fine.

Personally, I like the white walls with grey painted running boards and chrome grill.

Looking great, nice work.

*** second look at it, I think either way would be super nice***
