Looks REAL good, Josh! At least the flares cover up the cancer from showing, but it still sucks....

Looking good Josh. I feel your pain on the passenger door. Have the same problem on the bottom but that makes a good project for the summer. Also have rust forming on the bottom of the tailgate.

Mich. cancer looks just like New York cancer, what I did was sand down all the seams and seal it with rust away stuff then dab (for a rough texture) with Herculiner Do it all for like $40

I'm liking the flares man, truck looks good. The rust is killing my truck too - cab corners, tailgate, door...it is all starting to go down hill. As soon as I'm out of school this summer it's time for a nice Level II.

That black piece is a double sided adhesive that holds the flares on, Its so I didn't have to drill into the fenders. Thats how Sea-Bass put his flares on but his truck is darker so you can't tell.

I did not fix the rust. Im just gonna get a whole new bedside put on.

replacing an entire bedside is soooo much easier than those patch panels....i mean hell...it's a BED! meaning long sheets of thin thin sheetmetal!! imagine welding all that and praying for no warping....

The white on white 08 Flares look good.. and That's coming from a guy that HATES flares.. The only thing I don't care for is the seal.. gotta find a way to paint them white... I think it will look better. IMO..
