    This entire project has taken me a little under 4 months as of right now. I am now working on the outside. Primer paintjob a little at a time. smoothing out panels and welding in new ones. Should be ready for paint in about 2 weeks.

    Its definitely been an experience and alot of money, but im glad to see more time than money.

    I hop eyou are repainting it the same color. You are making me miss my old K5 SO much. Mine was the same color and my cab area was the same condition. My rear floor was better though. Looking good. I love the high clearance hitch too /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I still think after seeing all your K5s that the apple red was the best color they ever offered, so yes i am definitely getting it painted BRIGHT RED when im finished.

    my dad and I did all the body work and paint work. It is a repaint. It was pretty nasty when I got it but man it looked good afterwards. I hated the bodywork process but afterwards it was well worth it. I'll dig around for more pictures.

    alright found a few. I'm a little upset that I realize I don't have much in the way of pictures of it. I miss it but I will note, its not sold I ripped it apart for an offroad rig, ended up getting another K5. I really should have bought the second K5 and kept the first one together.

    I painted the strip down the center of the grille after that shot.

    Here is when I started tearing it apart for an offroad machine, before I went too far.

    Looks good /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Did you use any bracing or ribbing under those rear floor panels like the original floors had? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    It was a hand me down from my grandpa. I guess it has sentimental value or something. Anyway, I usede good old herculiner. In some spots i hadn't put on the second coat yet. So you can see some red coming through maybe. I did support the rear floor with better then factory structural steel crossmembers i found at home depot. The have a flat side and a side that lips over creating two tube like lips on each end. It really reinforced iteself. I think they use them for hanging heavy lights and stuff in warehouses, anyway the floor is very sturdy and im not afraid of putting a little weight on it (anymore).
