    WOW! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif They've got that thing torn apart!! Around here if you see a truck that looks like that it's on its way to being a truggy. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif When do you expect to have it back together? Any mods in store for it beyond the facelift and bumpers?

    Oh , yeah, Fire engine red with white top and trim, new wheels and tires, new chrome trim and replaced all turn sig and marker lights and lenses. Then heading with family to the beach. I'd like to have it ready for the kids highschool homecoming parade, but it;ll probably be next summer. The spare time mode at the body shop is a whole lot more affordable. Hard to be patient sometimes.

    Got the bumpers. Took about 6 weeks. That's them sitting in front of all the old body panels. They are slow, but the quality seems to be good. Wish I could find a shop that could lay chrome on all those right angles.

    Grew up with go-fast cars, then go-fast sports cars (tuning multiple SU carbs is a b_tch.) But I have always wanted a 4WD convertible pick-up. This is as close as I could get and still take the kids, wife and dog along.

    Will post additional pics when (if) the body shop gets closer to finished.
