    Finally got this in for the overhaul of the truck. The truck will be back tomorrow for hand sanding and blocking. Then I have to decide where to shoot it, gonna talk to 5280k5 about options. There are more parts than this for the overhaul, but they will be posted later to do the fabricator justice.

    well I don't have any of the truck from way back when, but here is after crappy body work fell off, vandalism, and stripping for prep work. The next pics are progress of body work. The truck gets primed tomorrow morning and then brought home for hand sanding.

    More progress

    Here is some recent progress of the truck primered. Now I have to fit the hood and primer that. Then I might add the bedliner in areas just to ease telling the paint guys where not to paint.

    I probably just laugh when it happens and order another sticker from Scott.

    For primer I first used DP48LF, this is the white version of the loved DP90LF, and then I went over it with K38 High Build.
