It runs...a little progress

I know you guys like to see progress so here's where I'm at. After swaping the body on a 4wd frame and wiring most of the power door stuff up it runs. I picked up the certifit parts and test fit most of them. Also got lucky at the junk yard and picked up a dual exhaust for 50 bucks!!! not installed yet. Heres a couple pics.

Yeah the only thing that concerns me is the curve at the front, I might have to work it a little. BTW your truck was the inspiration for the front end.

There is a local auto body supply I go to called custom paint & body, I've been dealing with them for years Cheap red base coat runs about 54 a quart, I think the better paint is around 90 a quart for red. Get me your paint code and I'll get a price.
