ok, i spent all day yesterday trying to prep the interior for painting(took about 10 hours). the butyl adhesive that holds the windshield in sucked to get out since the windshield has been replaced twice in my truck, there were 3 layers of the crap so it took a lot to get it all off...... The bars all had to be cleaned, sanded, primed, and i had to seam seal some stuff that ford missed when they assembled the truck. I had to finish gutting the doors and getting everything taped off. I ran out of paint, so there is only one coat on everything(some things didnt get any paint yet), but it still looks better than bare metal....

Here is today's accomplishments. I had to fill and block the roll pan 4 times to get it even remotely close to the bed, then it took me almost 2 hours to get the booth cleaned out and ready to use because I havent done anything with it but store crap in it for about 4 months!!!









If things go well tomorrow, I just might find some time to sneak to the shop to get more done! We will see!

Merry Christmas everyone!!!!

I sure hope so!!!


None of the pictures show how much work all of this really is! Im sure if any of you have ever done body work, you know what it takes to get a pan flushed in!!!

Thank you to everyone for the compliments!!!
