    These are too big to fit in the gallery I guess. But I wanted to show off anyway.
    1990 Chevy K5. I'm the second owner. The first owner purchased it new for their 30th wedding anniversary. It was in perfect condition other than the paint when I got it. I fixed the paint problem with Speedliner brand bedliner.

    Hey... just noticed your name and where you were from. I lived in Idaho Falls, ID 10 years ago. Were you there 10 years ago? Know any Griebenows?

    That name sounds familiar to me, but I don't know from where. I want to say maybe the Skyline Gun Club?

    Thanks for all the kind responces. I'm glad I got talked into doing this. It cost $1,500. to spray the whole thing. There wasn't a lot of prep work to do because it was a very clean rig to start with. Just some sandind around the big chunks of missing paint. What I was trying for was black on the shell and below the trim line down each side and dark grey on the rest of it. Well the black turned out fine but the dark grey really got dark when they added in some real charcole grey automotive paint and the teflon. So there isn't as much contrast as I intended. It still looks pretty good on a sunny day because you can see some sparkle in the grey section. It's in the garage 5-6 days a week so fading hasn't been a problem and cleaning it up is a easy becuase of the teflon they put in the mix as they are applying it. The body shop that did the work told me to soak a towel with Armorall and wipe it down if it gets looking dull. It has been 1.5 years now and it looks good.
    I have been using it to teach my 10 year old boy how to drive. He doesn't know it yet but this is his rig when the time comes. We have a ball roaming the back roads of eastern Id. It's a part of the family.

    Very, very clean looking rig. Now all you need to do is replace the automatic hubs with manual ones if you haven't already.

    My next step is a complete heart/lung transplant with axels. She runs good, but it could be better. And I hate having the 1.5" spacers on either end of the axles to make the front and rear wheels line up. That limits me to 33" tires. I would like to lift it a little higher so I can run 35's

    The new axels will have manual hubs. I should have it all done by late spring if everything goes as planned.
