Well I've got the interior cab and the like ready for paint. Hopefully I'll at least get the base coat on tonight


vile, when u get a chance or the next one u start, can u snap some pics on what exactly your'e removing, etc to prep the inside of the cab? i'm removing the glass when i paint mine, so i want to be pretty meticulous.

I remove pretty much everything. Striker bolts, hinges, glove box, ash tray, all glass basically anything you want painted. Was there anything in particular you had in question?

that's what i was figuring on. since you've done so many, in your opinion, since my truck is in pieces, is it better to paint everything while it's apart?

Well yeah when you get to that stage prep it ande paint it. Then once you put everything together all you have to do is your exterior prep and paint.

Vile, I'm thinking of buying a lift for my shop.  Do you like your Bendpak's?  Which model would you suggest for home use?  Awaiting the completion of the Mutt!!

Rotary is a very nice lift. Bend Pak is pretty good but they're loud and noisy. They have good features for the $.

These guys are pretty decent to deal with also and I've beat them up on shipping and prices before

The mutt is on hold while I take on my new roll at work but it'll get done sooner than later.
