    Anybody have some pics of mid 80's daully crew cab that has been restored or is just plain clean? Wanting to convince the wife of another project truck (the crew cab I just bought). I'm getting a little bueracratic resistance if you get my drift.


    Catch is the crew cab runs and pulls pretty good now but I'd like to make a decent hauler out of it. She says leave it be and drive it.
    I have saved a bunch of Eric M.'s photos of his restored rigs but looking for the crew cab. Thanks.

    When my wife was pregnant with our second daughter I told her I needed to get something with 4 doors. I also convinced her the older truck was cheaper than a new one. :whistle:

    I had an all white truck, and the best thing is to cut the white, either by a pin stripe, black, or molding, or both....I chose both....anything to break up the all white makes it look a little more "clean" but thats just my personal opinion.

    Here is an example after it had ben wheeled a bit
