new truck

Looks like one at least!

Not done assembling it yet obviously, but it was enough to drive it home.

When the wheels come off I'm going to clean the wheel wells and axles really well and paint it all black.

I'm getting new rims.

Bryan says once it gets cut and buffed it will be 10 times shinyer.... and will look wet, and smooth as glass. Hard for me to picture, but I'm excited.

Someone likes red! It's very shiny, like a candy apple. I wouldn't have painted the grille but to each his own.

Towing without my passenger mirror was a little interesting.

Rims will be done thursday or friday.... I'll have them on by the weekend.

Interior will be done soon as well.

Great looking truck! Great pic with the Civic on the trailer, looked like both could fit right inside the bed.

Yeah I do. They should be here tomorrow. My wheels will be done this afternoon, as well as the rear door pillar handles, wiper blades, and tailgate handle.

This weekend I plan to put all of that on, put the body mounts in, and start on the interior maybe. I have a lot of work to do on my bronco also, so I gotta make time. New charger is supposed to be shipped this week also.

Just washed all of the dust off of it today and took a few pics in the sunlight:
