1985 K20
« on: July 29, 2006, 09:23:00 AM »
After restoring the pics I am merging the two threads into one so there may be some redundancy....













*Threads Merged*

My 85 K20 I started a while back some of you may remember. I took a few pics inside yesterday but the color looks even better outside. I am putting the new bedsides on Monday and then once that's all set painting the bed. Right now I'm putting the cab back together but here's a couple pics...

SWEET VILE!!!  What color is that?  Where did you get the bedsides from?  What about the quality?

Thanks! The truck was originally blue (ugly blue) so I wanted to kinda keep to the original color anyway. The color is Subaru WRX blue. I think it's definitely the coolest blue I have seen. I paid about $220 bucks extra for that tint but it was worth it.

As far as the bedsides go I called this company VENG I used to use a lot but that was bought out by Keystone. I paid about $320 a side delivered. But Keystone doesn't carry them so I'm not sure if they are going to discontinue them or not. As far as the quality of the bedsides goes I'm sure they'll be decent but I'll let you know for sure on Monday when I check them out.

Looking good. I'm trying to decide what color to paint my 85. I like black and I have a red 87, but I was thinking of a lighter color thats a little more forgiving about showing small pings and stuff. Any suggestions- white, llight blue, silver or gray?

Base Coat Clear Coat is the best paint. It takes longer to paint but you can get the paint flawless and lay on the clear = best quality paint job. Single stage = quicker and easier and acylic enamels = Maaco paint job.
