Well I gave the Thrush Welded mufflers a chance, they sounded nice but I could tell they weren't going to be noisy enough. So I sold them and got a pair of Super 10s instead. These little fellas sound sweet

Sold the old 33s that were on the truck and sent the wheels to get sandblasted. Primed them then painted them graphite gray and clear coated them. It should off set the white nicely with the trim rings and centre caps. For rattle cans it turned out really nice! I used Dupli Colour wheel paint then covered that with Dupli Colour crystal clear.

After deciding that this truck won't likely see enough miles to drastically wear off a set of tires I figured I had might as well get a sweet set of diggers on it. A sale flyer came around to the store for 35x12.5-15 Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ. Got a lot of good reviews on them from friends of mine so that's what I went with, can't wait to try them out.

Got them mounted and balanced and threw them on. Looks nasty now, haven't got the trim rings and centres on yet. Also, the marathon passenger side quarter panel is done! I've been over it dozens of times now and I can't feel a ripple in it anywhere so I figure it's nice and straight like the other side now. The body and paint should turn out reeeeeally nice.

Thanks! That picture really doesn't do them justice, they almost look small on it from that angle. But in person I think they fit it just right. 37s would clear just fine too but I really don't like the stuffed look too much. Can't wait to try them out.

First experience with reproduction panels, not a huge fan. The driver's side fender had no issues. The black doors that I purchased from the wreckers were a different story. I knew they were reproductions before I took them off, but it was obvious that they weren't very old when they went to the yard. The body lines all aligned really nice and they opened and shut perfect. When I took the door panels off, there was a CAPA sticker still on the doors, so these were supposedly the 'premium' replacement panels. Haha... Right.
These doors weren't out of shape from being roughed up in the yard - the manufacturing process just sucks. There's 3 hours of work in the passenger's side door and 4 hours in the driver's side before I was happy enough with them. I really wished I had taken more pictures to show you guys where the contours were all goofy.
The hood is the last steel panel to be done. Every time we think it'll be a scuff and prime deal, there's a surprise. True to form, we got the green paint off the hood and found a few spots where the previous body job had been "caved and paved" so there's some more work there. I really hate having bondo anywhere unless it's completely necessary. I'll post more pictures soon!
