lol... I really haven't had much time to work on it. I did the cab swap over the weekend and only worked on it til it got dark last night. Then I unbolted the gold bed from the 2wd frame for the other project. I got most of one side sanded with 2000 grit last night. I have a couple scratches to fix too due to walking past it with a front bumper in my hand and loading a seat on the tailgate and the bracket went under and scratched it#[email protected]^#[email protected]$^#@ oh well shi* happens...lol The title should be back any day so I can sell it. I might even drive it for a few days.

Well I'm going to call it done ...pretty much. I just need to do a little interior cleaning, a quick touch up on a couple spots and maybe a crank on the tbars. I drove it to work today and it ran great. Its actually really quiet, atleast quieter than the dsg one. Anyway I took a few pics this evening.

Yeah there is some orange peel but what the hell, it isn't like I have a paint booth with good lighting.

That's what I was hoping to avoid needing if I ever got a spray gun. Currently I'm painting my new valance, and all I've got to use is Duplicolor spray paint.

I get aggrevated because its like one paint job I do it comes out smooth then the next has orange peel. I think my issue is lighting. I have pretty good luck when I'm just painting parts, they usually come out smooth.
