Dammit boy!! It's been awhile since i posted here.... but now that I stold my dad's laptop back, I'm gonna be online alot more..

Well, for those of you that remember, THIS is Suzy. (back when she was stock height..)

After a little love from Pugz and his lovely wife Itty Bitty..

She's not changing too much on the outside at the moment, though.. BUT hopefully i get to take a roadtrip to ALABAMA pretty soon....

Here's what is getting updated...

Subs. Getting a fiberglass box, painted to match the exterior.

The dash/ radio bezel. Suede is coming off. Painting to match the subs.

I'll try to update as often as possible, since i need to finish with her and 2 other vehicles by Texas Heatwave.

SO.. with that said.. here's the beginning stages of this makeover.

The only way to get it done, is to get it started.
http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e102/exodo5485/CIMG0092.jpg

The suede and assload of glue are GONE.
http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e102/exodo5485/CIMG0094.jpg

Just a TINY bit of bondo work.
http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e102/exodo5485/CIMG0095.jpg

And one of the guys at All American Customs decided to help me out.

And I'll try to get pics of the other 2 trucks I'm working on this month. Lemme know what you think!

at the moment, I'm just redoing the audio. Hopefully soon I get to reupholster the seats, train horns are extraordinarily attainable, and bags would be the finishing touch.

When you say Fleece..what do you mean like fleece fabric you would buy at walmart?

Yup. The fleece does nothing more than hold the resin to dry in a particular shape. So the cheapest fleece fabric will do just fine. I usually go to a fabric store and find the cheapest one they're trying to get rid of. You trying to learn how to fiberglass??
