This truck has potential.. if only the owner would stop letting ricers destroy it.
I have this truck for about a week while its owner has gone on vacation. They are a member here and won't have a clue as to how it is going to look when they get back.
I'm hoping it will be a total surprise and she doesn't have net access where shes going.
To Do list and timeframe.
To Do :
-Fix the door where it was broken into
-Un-Ghetto the whole dash.
-Un-Ghetto the dashes wiring harness ( I about cried when I took a GOOD look at it ).
-Lower Billit grill insert. Its for an ' edge ' or 4x4 torsion front. It presently has NO way to mount to anything.
-Fix lower vailience
-Put on a powerdome hood
-Straighten the bumper AND its brackets
-Paint all the exterior parts and make the interior presentable.
I have ( roughly ) 1 weeks time to get it all done. I have some local help ( some are members here ). The paint was going to be about 100$ for the Oxford White and I was going to use the Urethans Clear coat I have here. She posted something about pinstriping.. Pinstriping is best on Acrylics or a harder based paint so.. 120$ later, I have a quart of Acrylic. I'm hoping that will be enough to do a Hood, Bumper/Vailence and a door ( Chris/Gumby.. will that be enough and should I change filters in my respirator from when I used it last a month ago?? ).
Anyway.. What I'm starting with..
Fog light mount..
This isn't cheap..
