Haven't got much done on the truck the past few months. I will be finishing up the body work soon and get the truck ready for the Overland Expo in April. I've also been holding off doing any major work until I get the camper, which I received word I should be able to pick it up within a few weeks. So things are progressing. More news to come.

The truck is almost show ready! I'm finishing up the truck to be displayed at the Overland Expo this coming April 24th-26th in Prescott, Arizona. On top of that I will be making a presentation the first day of the show. My presentation will be from 11:00 AM to 11:50 AM in the Overland Theatre

Hope to see you there!

Come and check out the show! There will be many people from the Overland community, including Tom Collins from Camel Trophy. More info about the show at OVEXPO.com

Time to get some updated photos up!


With a delay in moving shops, both mine and the body guy's, we're back preping the body. Here Spencer sands down the kevlar filler.




After sanding down the first coat a second coat is applied.








After drying the second coat gets sanded

After the kevlar coating a skim (thin) coat of body filler gets applied and sanded down.




Mixing the body filler.




Spencer applying another skim coat to fill in all the smaller dips.




Sanding down the second skim coat.
