    Here was after cutting out one of the cab corners, bought replacement pieces and welded them in, then a thin layer of bondo to blend them in

    A fresh coat of steel wheel silver, and a satin flat look to the center caps, now she looks like a work truck... Before it looked like farmer Eds truck to pick up hay for the horses.

    The old directional lenses from the old grille didnt fit the new style, back to the junkyard to get the correct ones tomorrow, inquiring minds who want to know... Total cost of $1940 including the truck purchase, grille, paint job, cab corners.... I have about 16 hours of my own time into it over the last 7 days.

    No payments on this puppy.... *trucewhiteflag*
