    Buget Resto...update...

    Well....I've got the cab welded...and the rear frame rails blasted and primed.
    The Texas doors I had are installed and lined-up.
    I'll have the frame painted this Friday...and get that clip edged-in...and install.
    Then I can start throwing some mud.
    I'm just moving right along...a week off work helped..

    I've got about $800 into the project...so far.
    I've got a complete clip now...and some new 33"Trxus m/t's...
    I just need some paint, wheels, front seat (gray)
    I'm considering using Imron insted of Omni paint...
    LOL...I haven't sprayed Imron since 87'!!!:ooo:

    I'll get some pics up...as soon as Steve gets our new gallery up..:grin:

    Sweet you will need to take alot of pics and do a write up. I am sure it will be asked "how cheap can I fix my truck".

    Good luck with your project. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

I would really like to see you do it for 1500, interior and all. YOu would be my hero. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif If you already have the paint and new sheetmetal it probably could be fairly easy. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I'll do a detailed write-up for sure...and video. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    The wheels and tires...will be the tough part. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    The rockers and the floor will be time consuming...
    I expect to spend about 25 hours...especially since I need cab supports also. /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif

    Here's the inner and outer rockers..
    The inners I made..the outers were $10 ea.

    Hmm, for $1500 you could get any rust free 2wd longbed you want out here and buy the gas to drive it back and still be under budget /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
