Fully Stock 1994 Ford F150 Restoration ~with Pictures~

Been in this truck my whole life, my dad bought it new in '94. Many people asked why I didnt mod it up or anything, but I just love the way it looked. So I kept it that way. Great truck and great father / son project. Never gonna get rid of it. Truck was totaled in 2005 and sat with little use until 2012...when I got a hold of it. Everything was done on this...100% new brake system, new brake lines, new power steering lines, new master cylinder, new rear suspension brakets, new gas tanks...and the list goes on...The back quarters were both rotted real bad and had to be cut out, LMC truck had everything we needed. Its my daily driver and I wouldnt have it any other way

We actually used Acrylic Enamel..HVLP guns. Used a sealer coat before the actual paint, it took 2 nice coats of paint. Good luck with yours!
