    I started this project last year at about this time. I did all the floor, supports, front and rear door posts(lower half), and rhino lined the inside floor and firewall and core support. I then took it to a body shop to have the quarters and outer rockers put in. That's where it sat for 6 months(a friend was supposed to do it on the side). Nothing ever happened so I took it to another shop last week and hear are the pics of what they've done so far. It supposed to be ready for paint late next week.(I can't wait, finally!!!)

    Paint color will be the original color GM white. I have a habit of calling it Rhino lining but it's actually SEM Protex tintable bedliner. I'm a distributor for SEM through work. http://www.sem.ws/category.php?category_id=32

    Keep on pushin' on, it will get done. :bow:

    I can still remember the day mine became one color again. :woot:

    It's all worth it in the end, saving yet another K5 is just plain cool.

    We've been putting that spray in bedliner in cabs of trucks it is nice. cuts down on noise and heat. Even if you are going to put carpet in it. stops floor from sweating stops rust.

    Sure is a good feeling to have a fresh coat of paint. It always scared me to put it back together for fear of scratching it.

    Looks excellent.

    Motor is In. :D Here is a pic. Didn't get it fired up though. Combination of bad gas and the Choke was sticking and flooded the engine. :mad:
