    Stopped by the body shop this morning and he has the exterior of the cab shot with base and three layers of clear. Unfortunately the last layer wrinkled a little and will need to be fixed.

    I am so ready to have the truck back home so I can get it completed and on the road. Haven't driven it since October of 2002 /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    The color is based off of a GM silver metallic paint code but the body guy put in more metallic. I was going for a very light silver metallic and I think he got it pretty close to what I was shooting for. Thanks for the compliment.

    Hasn't been on the road since Oct of 2002 as I have been slowly tearing it apart, putting in a 454 and 4 speed, hydraulic clutch and hydroboost setup and getting it ready for paint. Unfortunately, I only get to work on my truck in the evenings for a couple hours when I have free time - so things take along time to get done.
