O ya forot to mention this is no longer a "restore" I canceled that idea when I got my LMC catalog

What it may come close to looking like minus the cowl hood. This one is a short bed and I got a long bed

hes running the bags low in the back hence why the back is lower and the front is set at ride height so the camber doesnt eat the tires.

its running on 20's im sure those are wide enough lol

Tore into the exterior today fenders are trash head lights and turn signals need replaced chrome rings around them are okay

I kinda fill like I am at work working on this truck. Who ever repainted it and did the body work decided it was to hard to put some bolts back into the spots so it was relatively easy. Same thing happens at work when we go to pull a engine out shop before us forgot some bolts to fenders

Sprayed engine down with simple green only got the intake clean HAHA

Certifit is def cheaper on price. But sometimes their quality is kind of lacking.
