Before and after

Got this idea off another forum and thought it would work well here.
Show a pic of your truck when you first bought it.
Then a pic of it after you were done with it (I know, qualify "done").
It amazes me what you guys do with your stuff.
You can do multiple areas such as interior, engine room, underside, but one old and one new pic for each.
Have fun.

Here's mine

Just bought a set of new ones then had my upholstery dude go at em and match the seat. Stole the metal trim off the old ones.

It'll never be done.

I think HIOs before and after is pretty darn cool.

I don't have any pictures from when I bought the Pumpkin, I didn't own a camera back then (1985) and digital cameras hadn't been invented yet. Besides, it was just a truck, my transportation, nothing special.
Here are some pictures of what it looked like when I retired it in 1996. It was actually in pretty good shape.
The next pictures show what happens to a truck when it's pretty much abandoned for thirteen years. Yeah, pretty bad.
The last pictures are where it's at now. In the middle of a body off resto. I had planned on it being finished by now, but we all know how that goes.
