Default my never ending project

so my truck has been in my family since it was brand new its a 1986.5 built 6/86 2wd z24 5 speed and power steering. it was my aunts truck and then my dad bought it in 1997 then used it as a work truck and drove it for a few years then had a accident in 2001 and its been mine ever since heres the pics

first thing was to strip it to bare metal and paint it flat black fiberglass fenders new grille corner lights stock titan wheels and pulled bedsides and torsion lift
