The LUV has some of the best lines ever on any vehicle. It's easily top 5 in my heavily Nissan biased mind. A LUV is what sparked the addiction for me. This project kicks ass

So I got the 9 millionth hole in the bed welded in, the top of the floor POR-15'ed, the minor dings skimmed coated, and here is a poorly taken pic of the really ugly etching primer after the first coat today. Going to prime over it with the 2k primer in a few, and prime the top again and the interior. Getting closer...

Going Old Skool with a mod... Practical purpose though, the fuel door access is easier if the tailgate swings out...

Started on the gauge panel...






And also finished up all the metal work I know of, including the hinge mods on the tailgate. Prime time tomorrow... I should finish it up prep wise all but the fiberglass. I still need to finish out the underside of the hood and I got a little work to do to the rear fenders. I got to finish the 8.8 before I finish the fenders though, to be sure I don't need to add any extra to that part...

Primer looks like primer so no pics, but I got the sheet metal work done, probably one more blocking away to be done until paint. Got the hood corners at the end of the fenders by the grille down to the blocking stage (Up22 SUX). And I got the gauge pod done. I hope to get the hood finished this week so I can flip it and do the bottom side. (Rough as a cob). And I hope to fire it up. soon. I am also working on the rear, got to get it done and in so I can be sure the fenders work with it as is...

After 8 million or so hours of drilling, I finally finished the 8.8 with the short axle mod...



Then mounted the wheels and am SO disapponted that I got more work to do...

Just ended up doing a trade to a friend that needed the 8.8 I had exactly as specc'd out. I got all my money back out of mine, plus he traded me his uncut 8.8 rear with a new set of rotors and pads. (I kept my shiny ceramic painted calipers)... The new one is going in my Nissan...
