Restoring my 01' F250 Pictures

I bought an 01' F250 Powerstroke about two months ago for a great deal, but knew I had to do body work right away, so I went ahead and did it and here are the results.

I didnt actually do any painting myself, I got that done by my friend who does it professionally. I took the truck apart, sand blasted the frame, and sanded everything that needed to be sanded. He fixed the dents, put new door bottoms in, and painted.

Thats a good way to keep your trucker longer, I should do that one day with my truck, do you put a special paint like anti rust?

Start spraying some kind of rust repeller under the truck seeing as you live in the province Rustario where you deal with snow and lots of road salt.

Those mirrors on the truck are horrible my 2006 F-450 has them and you can't see a d*mn thing. New telescoping mirrors from Ford for the XL version are over 300 bucks each.

Finding used ones in a wrecker are hard to find and I'am not sure about the aftermarket ones.
