Hey guys im doing a full resoration on my truck and thought you all would like to see pics and progress. Just a little info on the truck. I had this truck given to me about 6 months ago because an old lady did not want to see it layin around on her property any more so i went up there and pulled it out of the woods. I drove it for about 3 months and during that time the front cab mounts rotted completly off so the cab was sitting on the tranny and frame so i decided to bring it in and do a restoration. I think i have decided that im goin to paint it black when all is done. Let me know what you guys think. Images will be updated regularly.

Heres what it looked like when i got the truck and cleaned it up a little and put the stacks on it.

That sucks man... I had to put new floor pans in mine, but the frame wasn't rusted up like that.

you can buy the rocker panels but you can not buy the inner rocker panels.

I like the red

I have a truck identical to yours but it is solid white. I have to say I really like the color combination of your truck. It really sticks out.

Thanks. yeah im trying to figure out what color to paint it. I was thinkin about painting it a black metallic and keep the silver stripe down the side but make it a darker silver with the black so its sorta hidden if you know what i mean. What do you guys think for a color though?

If you paint it red the color code should be PE4 (mine was) and it's called Colorado Red.
