Sheeoot, the paint scheme looks better than the metal holding it up. Ah well, just a snapshot in time. 12 months, 'nother year, 'nother color(s).
That looks better than the primer job you had earlier, but it does look good. And just thing your wife helped paint that thang .
You do more fussy bodywork than I!!..it looks good!..
It also looks like your right rear tire is suffering from ...
"500 Caddy syndrome!"........ ..I still have to watch your burnout video at least 3 times everytime I sign on... .....
thanks everyone, hope to have it legal in a week or 2, if i get my t-case gaskets in.
im lookin forward to more videos!
very nice branndon. i cant wait to see it, i am going to be in socal on the 7th to the 22!
are you going to run any kind of top on it?
hard top during rainy times, soft top when i get some money, when i get it, its going to be soft top all the time i think, maybe no top during summer
That looks sharp, almost mall rated now ! What is the excess framerails out front for? A feed trawf' for all them horses you got under the hood.
I like the paint job, looks like you have been watching Overhaulin, everything they paint is two tone.
nice paint and nice scooter. scooters are fun!
Did you do the windshield yourself? If so...whats involved? How long did it take? I gotta put a windhield in my truggy sometime in the next few weeks...Been tryin to decide if I should try doin myself, or just call one of the windshield places. Anyone know what those places charge to do a windshield?
Btw, the rig looks alittle more civilized now. Whens the first wheelin trip?
did windshield myself.. pain in the butt! i would pay $50 or so to have someone do it next time, i'll write more tomorrow, i'm in a hurry
Looking good in rattle can. Keep the videos coming. I am crazin some more burnouts.
I'll wait to see what ya write tommorrow.
the windshield itself is a piece of cake, the lockstrip however is a pita if you don't have the $20 tool that lets you do it in like 3 minutes.
getting the windshield out without cracking is the real PITA, take a putty knife and go all the way around both sides after removing the lockstrip to help loosen the windshield from the weatherstripping.
the truck looks nice btw, it looks wierd without a top/cage.
Sorry for the hi-jack Brandon..
I don't have to pull a windshield out, it's already gone. I just have to install a new one. Can you buy this tool somewhere? And I assume the "lock strip" is the rubber gasket thing? Say I grab a windshield from pick-n-pull or something...Do I need to try to save the gasket thing? Or do I have to get a new one?
Ok, after reading your post again, I figured out that the lock strip and the weather strip are seprate. The weather strip goes in first, then the windshield, then the lock strip...right? So, assuming I'm carefull, I can get all these pieces out of a junk yard truck intact and re-useable?
here is a tool i found online, its only $15
i have use this exact tool, its worth double the price of it.
if you look at a truck, the lockstrip is the plastic piece that is kinda inside the weatherstripping. the lock strip is reusable as long as its not broke. if your weather stripping is good, you shoudn't need another one. id get it either way and use the better of the two in your truck.
