I have the box inside trying to get the body work done. I'm welding up a used tailgate that has a bunch of Rust. Then I will Put spray in boxliner in the box, undercoat bottom and paint. I am making a Tonneau cover to fit, to keep snow out.

I still need to figure out what I'm doing with the Grille. I plan on putting a FAST EFI on This year also.

It was my first paint job, looks good from 20 feet. Ha.

That truly was a long time coming. You did a ton of work and new parts. I really like the contrasting dash pad and door arm rest pads. I would have never had the creative insight to do such a thing but it looks awesome and aggressive. Great job!

Those seats look nice. What kind are they or what are they out of? Gotta love the old super and crew cabs.
