Build Thread: 1993 f150 restoration project

finally got my truck down into the last stages. ive gone through so much with it, started with new fenders, ripped it all apart ended up doing fenders radiator support, cab corners, bed wheel wells, redid the whole frame, sandblast then coated it with POR, added a new rear tank, then did the suspension over and added a 2 inch lift, interior is all done with a full new sound system, and lastly came the endless hours of bodywork to finally get the silver and blue two tone ive always invisioned. me and my dad and a few friends spend the last 7 months working in our spare time, all i have left is some 32 inch tires, with new wheels, a new flowmaster exhaust system and gotta get some new plugs coils fuel filter fuel regulator since its running really lean from sitting and getting gummed up, but heres some pictures!

Good color choices, not too fond of the blue strip across the front of the hood tho.

Nicely done. Would you mind sharing what materials (i.e. paint) you used and the approximate cost?

Very nice work!! Looks great. The color combo makes it "personalized".

This is one of my favorite truck color scheme so far: my '95


But liked my black and silver version too. The two tone blue just "POPS" in the sun.

Loving the two tone, I like the added lines you put, ie the blue on the hood and the back of the cab.

Very good looking truck, I love seeing old trucks be made new again. Be sure to throw up pics when you put your new wheels and tires on.
