Damn... those panels look like they were made for the truck! Good job!

Looks good.

Thanks.
The next time I remove those panels would be when I put in the stereo and speakers in. But ill need to buy some new fastners. The teeth on quite a few of them are broken.

Of course thats after cv axels, tie rods, shocks, leaf springs, ball joints spark plug wires etc, etc etc.......

If I'm not careful this old girl will nickle and dime to death. But she does have to look pretty on the outside as well as the inside:)

Or you can buy an overpriced NEW vehicle. Consider this a good investment in your travels...

Yeah its fun.

I forgot to mention this girl is really old, she's stuck at 305k miles.

We can fix that ODO! lol... 305k is just broke in!

But seriously, you're not throwing bad $ into this. She will continue to run, take care of her and you'll be a happy camper when she's rolling past others who can't...

I put lipstick on a pig
 
Since the paint on the truck is almost gone I decided to do a little experimenting. I washed it with an SOS pad and applied boiled linseed oil. Here's a video of the before and after

That fix is way at the bottom of the list:)

Linseed oil is an interesting approach, but I have to admit, it looks alright.

Interesting. The clear coat layer makes it a bit weird to mess with the finish on mine. I need to tackle a couple rust spots boiling though now though. I know as soon as I start messing with it, it's going to grow into a huge project because those tiny rust spots are much larger under neath.
