Here's the cab jammed and ready to have doors installed.

Quite a difference from 3 years ago.



Color is Oxford White.

IMHO the best color for these old crew cabs.

After removing 35 years of undercoating, grease, and grime from leaky drivetrain components I have to admit this is a pretty sight.

50 hours of prep got this looking pretty darn nice.

I used Epoxy primer, 3M Undercoating, followed by Eastwood Satin 2k Chassis Paint.

Not sure how that stuff holds up but for now looks nice haha!

The donor cab was an F-150 that had been used to haul logs in Northern California.

This bed was anything but straight.

Can't say that now.

This is that point in the project when you realize you might actually finish this dang thing.

Now it's off to paint.

I'll post a final assembled pic when she's all done.

For now it's on over to show the guys the Cummins diesel that stuffed in between the frame rails.
