Great job, Bjorn. I really like the windshield visor work. That smoothed dash looks nice too. Epoxy primer is the way to go. Don't have to worry about any rust in the future. Are you going to use before paint? Epoxy is hard to sand. A two part urethan primer gives great coverage and build up and is easy to sand. Super job!

Hey Bjorn,
Tell us more about those tires/wheels. They are very nice - Are they used? What were they on originally?

You know we are going to want our Texas truck back when you are all finished - just saying.
