Looks awesome!! I can't wait to see it all back together. I've always wanted one of those but 4x4. Chances of finding one in my area with minimal rust is very slim.
Great family build...

Thanks guys. Well as nice as it was Im one who cant leave well enough alone. The clear laid down real smooth and not a run anywhere. It had a little trash it from painting in a dirty garage but for the most part it looked good. But i wanted more. So I sanded it down with 600 and was Planning on shooting on 2 more coats of clear and calling it done.   Im not sure exactly changed, air pressure, temperture, gun settings or what, but I ran the next coat. It look good coming out of the gun, but after a few minutes it started to get "gravity indicators"  and a bunch of them. I ran the clear on every panel but one. I was trying to get away with out cutting and buffing but that didnt work out so well. so I began Sanding and scrapping all the runs. it took forever. I think in total I sanded this whole truck 12 times. but in the end it turned out pretty nice.

since this is the wife's truck, she wanted to girl it up a little.    Breast cancer awareness pink.

Hey Rhino,
How much of the KBS Blacktop did it take to coat your frame?  I'm getting ready to order some, but don't want to get too much, that stuff is pricey!! :o

The most recent pics were posted in 2013.  A few months ago, Photobucket (a third party hosting "service") went rogue and started holding customer pictures hostage.  The problem is Internet wide.

It's difficult to know just how much you don't know until you know it.
In other words... if people learn by making mistakes, by now I should know just about everything!!!
