aint really been able to update anything being in texas since feb 2nd and all my cars are up in wisconsin yet at my parents except my truck since as i drove it down


found a dried up canal, so i had to drive in it :whist:


but after the 1st paycheck i had to go get a steering wheel and adaptor kit for it, i just dont have cruise and my blinkers dont cancel anymore, didnt have a horn so i got a lil button and put it on top of the column


after a few weeks of being bord and absolutly nothing to do, i went and got a parts truck for $500, and so far have made $575 back off the truck so the parts i got were free :biggrin:



pulled the doors off nd started preping em for paint, gonna be a lil bit before that happens though


also cut the rockers off as mine have big rust holes in em now


a couple weeks later i pulled my box off and swapped it out with the yellow one, and also started preping for paint when i had nothing else to do



but of course before paint could happen, i had to cut the lower rear corners off like i wanted it :biggrin:



and i cut the inner fenderwell and flared the box sides out 1.5"


before


after 1.5" flare


after lookin at the wheel to fender in the rear, i ended up goin back and flaring em out an extra 1/2" just to make sure the tires will clear
you can see that the box side sticks out in this pic

and a pic of the truck as it sits right now
