Wow ... that is amazing ... how much did all the repairs/modifications cost you?

Wow. Thanks guys. I must say though that knowledge and experience does come into play in getting a rattle can paint job to look that good. And yes even in person, you can not tell by looking at it that the truck was painted with a spray can. Had I not been as impatient as I was I could have gotten the truck looking much better. There are a few areas where you can tell that more body work was needed. But I hate body work so I made it short and sweet and so I can see the areas where I should have spent more time.

The paint job was cheap. $25 for paint, $25 for a 10" buffer, $5 for an extra polishing pad, $30ish for wax and polishing compound, $8 for blue painters tape, $10 for Bondo, $12 for sandpaper, and $6 for lacquer thinner. So that comes to about $120 to paint the truck. That doesn't count the many many hours I spent sanding, doing body work, and wet sanding. Wet sanding took the longest.

The headlights were $130 a pair, grill was $60ish, bumper $120ish, $65 for the front leveling kit, $15 for the Transformers emblem, and $1500 for the wheels and tires.

I've bought other parts to help fix up the truck like a new throttle position sensor, new fuel level sender, new Die Hard Platinum batteries, So all total I've got about $2500 into it and I bought it for $3000. Mechanically though I have a long way to go. The engine leaks like a sieve and I have electrical gremlins to find and squish.
