Default Modding the Old Second Gen

well kind of a delayed post here but this is what i started with


Then after some ideas i came up with this, all thanks to the z too


Then I became tired of the running boards and wanted it to look more like a truck so i removed them


Oh and forgot to mention i bought the 17 in ram rims off a newer truck, they look better on mine anyways, currently i am thinking about plastidipping the rockerpanels following the top of the front bumper

yeah i know it was a love hate relationship with the running boards, they do come in handy but make it appear so much closer to the ground, and with the plastidip i found it was a pain in the ass to make it look clean, i took it to my local linex shop just to see how much they wanted and for what i wanted done was going to be about 1500, i was initially trying to just get their material, but they do not do that at all, i had a few buddies work at a shop and owed me a favor they would have done the prep and spraying it for free

I forgot about this as well i like the unique lettering i made i grin everytime i look at it

you can get Carbon Fibre wrap for the wood pieces, and when you put a heat gun to it, it will shrink to the piece, seems to do a nice job, there was one guy who did it here, but can't remember who, was in the build section.

yeah but the whole reason i want to plastidip is because it is much cheaper and removable, plus i feel more accomplished if i actually paint it myself.

the wood trim looks nice but i am wanting something different, i have been pondering just like a gunmetal grey look with all the black leather, kinda like what matches the wheels but it would be plastidip for sure

i am trying to keep this truck able to go back to stock fairly easily
