Thought I asked this, but maybe not...

Are the stripes painted on or decals? How hard do you think they'll be to remove?

Nice truck. Are you into fast cars? Picture your truck with a ford 2.3 turbocharged engine. I just happen to have a good friend that has one.

UPDATE!!!

Got the interior started.
Got the jambs painted,frame painted,and rims painted.
Got the carpet in,lower dash painted,center console in,and one seat..lol
I put the glass back in it so i can drive it to work this week and mess with why the front end has so much slop in it at lunch.


Please forgive the pollen on the truck....its everywhere right now.
thats the main reason i cant paint the truck.
That and i dont have all the body work done yet...lol

Im waiting for the carpet to completely dry,and then im going to "lock" the dye in with spray carpet dye over the RIT.
It looks awsome now,the flash is picking up weird colors that are not really there.


PICS!!!!

update!
I messed with Larry...that's what i named the skull face in the bed...lol

I called my bro and he told me what he did to stabilize the bondo more.

I built up the area with fiberglass and mat till i had a nice base.
Then I took 75% bondo, to 25% bondo fiberglass hair resin and mixed them, added both activators sparingly to give me a good work time, then mixed and applied.
I will have to finish sanding it all out this week and apply one more finishing/shape layer....And a boat load of sanding.

Its all only about 1/2 inch thick so far, so i should be gold Smile

PICS!

Ya...its still in the rough stage, and i don't have the final shape correct yet...I have to build it as i go.
i have only shaped it a little with a dremel sanding wheel.

Wow..... I really can't wait to see how it looks finished. Let us know how it holds up. You might have made customization a little easier.

Starting test shooting today.
Sprayed the tailgate.
88 degrees, 60% humid and 25% MS to 75% paint.
Got a little more orange peel then i would have liked.
Any suggestions on gun settings?
I tried 50/50 mix, ran like you would not believe.
the 3 to 1 I'm doing now goes on great, just orange peeled more then i think it should.
