Cool Silver's build thread (2002 Ram 1500)

Okay, Pulling the trigger and starting a genuine build thread.

I got Silver back in January, ran into trouble and sought help here.
With the help of the Z and all it's knowledge, Silver's running great now.

Here's some stock photos of him.






Okay, so they're not all 'initial stock', I didn't get him with the dented bumper.
Guy in a Dakota in front of me got cut off by a BMW, I smashed into his hitch.
Honestly, I'm glad he had the hitch, it limited the damage to my truck...



I'll post some of the Plasti-dipping process pictures here when I get a chance, but this is the 'build' thread of Silver's plasti-dip.

Current mods:
-Plasti-dip, all over
-Thrush Turbo muffler w/ Walker tail pipe
-new front bumper

Definitely more to come!

I'll be back!

You need to address the rust issues before you do more. In Maine, they will flunk you for an inspection sticker unless that is fixed. My dad's 06 Sierra flunked with a perfect body, but some rust in the frame around spare tire holder. Friggin salt.

We don't have any inspection... at all around here. I've got it lined up when I get the funds to replace the cab corners, but it's gonna be awhile--need a new job. I've got them coated with Rust Stop from Rustoleum right now and that's all that it's gonna get for now. The only other way that I'd be able to do it is if I filled the holes with expanding foam and went from there... I'd really prefer to do it right, so it'll wait.
I do have to agree though, the salt sucks!

Quick 2am update because I'm excited. Got the brackets replaced yesterday and the new bumper re-installed!



More pictures to come, especially after Silver has a bath.

I'm at it again with stickers. This one has been a long time coming, and joins my "thrush" muffler sticker. I've wanted this one for a very long time.

More pictures once I get home of the whole truck (yes, I do put the PRO in procrastinate.)

Voonderbar! Finally, a build thread for Silver. You've only been talking about doing it for the last 9 years... OK, a couple of weeks. Doesn't matter how long, because it's up now and Silver is looking awesome! Keep up the great work, Kelsey!

Talking

Just a quick update, I would have gone up and edited the bumper post, but I waited too long

Anyway, here's a simple progression of the bumper replacement, and the final product is seen above.

Hey thanks Brandon!
I loved that one way too much not to get it. I don't want to put too many stickers on though, at the risk of making it look tacky.

Thanks Roger!
Yeah, I procrastinate too much, I'm sorry!
More to come, though probably won't be too active for the next week or so. We'll see!

Should be fun!

New bumper looks good. Truck is starting to make a turn for the better. Its neat how a little bit here and there can make a vehicle look good as new. Keep it up.
