Holy moly its been a while since I've been on here...a lot has happened to 'ol Joan. Lets try to get caught up!

This is the final picture of her at the last show she attended (Severed in the Southwest 2017)



As you can see, the front of this truck needed some love. After two accidents, the hood was pretty rough, and that 6 piece, glued together grille just wasn't cutting it anymore. So I did what any other sensible minitrucker would do and I tore the whole truck apart to get it ready for paint.



We started with the passenger front fender. Surprisingly, It felt really good in primer after all the welding that had been done to it, so I thought it would be a breeze to knock it out. We striped it real quick and found that it needed more work than anticipated (a recurring theme in this build).



I pulled the wheels off as a final teardown step and put the titans back on for now as to avoid trouble with body filler and overspray. The team over at the body shop knocked the initial body work on the fender out pretty quick.



Then we got started on the hood and drivers side fender, both of which needed A LOT of work to get straight.









One of the main issues I've always had with this truck is the headlights. No matter how hard I try, I just can't seem to get them to line up. Guess I'm not cut out to be a body guy...the guys at the shop had Joan's eyes all straightened within 5 minutes.

Before:



After:



Initial body work all done and first prime on the fenders and doors





And more photos of the body work on the cab:







Thats all for now! I'll try to post more often to get caught up on here.
