Like button!

That has really turned out nice! Sure makes a dif, when time is taken on a restoration job. I think doing a project like that with a Son forms a special bond, and a great learning experience. Not many 16 yo kids could be trusted to care for a project vehicle, but I'm sure yours is well aware, how special it is.

Congrats to both of you!!

Thanks for the kind words!
We certainly could have spent much more time blocking everything out before paint. I really didn't guide coat much/any of the sheetmetal. With what little free time I/we have, it was "good enough" and I busted out the paint and turned it blue!

Outstanding... Needs the factory pin stripe and the factory chrome door bumper guards at the two tone parting lines.

I'm on it!
If you notice there's a little test piece of the pinstripe on the back corner. Already have the pinstripe kit and the mouldings ready to go.
Wanted to get the bed on first to make sure they line up.


Excellent... And I'm sure you and your son (two man job IMO) will install the pin stripping better than my 1987 Chevy truck that looked like a drunk installed it.

We really do need a "like" button. Any kid would be proud to drive that!

Thanks dudes! Boy just called me, sorting out the tail lights and getting them re-installed right now. "Dad, IDK which one goes where"
Son, put the bulb in the socket and see which turn signal lights it up...

"Ohhhhh yeahhhh"

Your truck is next buddy!
You're already turning that thing into a museum piece of art. Time to bust out the hammers, sanding blocks, bondooo and paint gun!

A bit lifted for towing but great for around town or a trek through the weeds [emoticon]

Nice to see a kid willing to learn and put the work in and dad that can show him how it's done! The kid across the street from me, think he just finished high school, put a 24V Cummins in an '05 F350, did about 95% of the wrench turning himself and did a beautiful job. Wonderful to see that there are still young gearheads in the world!
