well next came the body work which i figured id just put some body filler over some of it and call it good but i got a little more into it, and learned as i went Poke haha not the best way to go

heres some of the rust:

[Image: IMG_1909-1.jpg]

[Image: IMG_1915.jpg]

[Image: IMG_1911.jpg]

[Image: IMG_1910.jpg]


i got some doors from a friend for free and started repairing the rust on the corners and along the bottom

[Image: IMG_1925.jpg]

this is how i got one. it had alot of bondo and rivets in a patch as big as the body filler patch


[Image: IMG_1931.jpg]

took a while to sand down and i tried using a heat gun but later remembered warping Bang Head Bang Head so i just patched the end corners and chopped the patch of rivets out

[Image: IMG_1936.jpg]

didnt think it was to bad for the first time Very Happy Very Happy
[Image: IMG_1935.jpg]

[Image: IMG_1939.jpg]

[Image: IMG_1940.jpg]
i decided to just scrap that door and just use the ones that came on it ( alot less repair)
[Image: IMG_1943.jpg]



Started sanding and getting ready for paint. took the bed over to storage and started stripping everything down ( my goal is for as little chrome as possible)

Stripping and sanding it down:

i dont think my set up was the best. when i got done painting the panels seemed like sand paper themselves Bang Head Bang Head haha i dont think there was enough ventilation or something but it worked out better than i was thinking Thumbs Up!

got the fenders and hood on:

since the primer didnt turn out so hot i decided id like to try the bed liner thing so i the gallon kit for Herculiner. i read alot about doing the liner and the quality of your product will all depend on your prep so i sanded the sh*t out of it. i was really surprised how well the floor looked when i took the carpet out. the bottom layer was a little wet so its proubly best that i got it out before it all went to hell. then i masked off everything and started.

hers how it looks:

after (still have to do the details on the dash)

the bed-liner came the other day and started the prep for the rest of the truck. i got it from nonslipcoating.com and personally i would never order a single thing from them again. they said it would be here in 6-7 business days and i wanted for about 2 weeks, ( i can understand some error) but i called them and got this asian guy (not to be raciest or nothin) but i couldn't understand a damn thing he said! and he kept calling me at school and stuff so i asked to talk to his manager and he straightened everything out and i ended up getting 3 gallons for free. so it all worked out

enough complaining heres how my paint went:

started sanding it all down for the prep with 36 grit and had to wipe everything down with acetone and started rolling. it turned out better than i had thought it would with the roller and its easy to touch up once you have a coat or two on you can just paint it on with a brush and you cant even tell

marked off the line between the blue and black
[Image: IMG_0730.jpg]

one coat

[Image: IMG_1964.jpg]

after
[Image: IMG_0734.jpg]

[Image: IMG_0741.jpg]

[Image: IMG_0739.jpg]

still has the tape and needs some touch ups
[Image: IMG_0755.jpg]


and thats how it is now im still trying to figure out what to do with the bed and lift. im in the process of making my own shackles but i still need to get some metal proubly tomrow.
any body have any ideas??
