All that's left is the rear end lift, and to mount the 33's and trim the front fender. And of course all the other stuff I decide to do next...


Thanks to Nick for all the help today

Finally got some rims/tires to mount on the truck! So now all thats left to make it just drivable off road is longer brake lines and im good to go.

I finally got all the brakework done. What a hassle. Apparently I'm not very good at undoing 20 year old brake lines to put extensions in, I just end up snapping them. What I am good at, however, is running new hardlines after I break the old ones (go figure :dontknow:). Either way it's all done now and it doesn't leak so I'm glad that part of it's over lol

Ya if i could sell it for over 4500 id make enough profit for it to be worth it. But then again, i built this thing to use it, not sell it.

Rock sliders maybe, maybe not, haven't decided yet. Definitely a winch bumper and custom rear bumper eventually. I'd like to get new axles eventually (sooner rather than later) with lower gears in them, right now I got stock axles. Also going to put on skidplates and protection where it's needed. Going to have to patch the hole in my floor too.


Sell it now while it is worth something. Nice rig man.

Haha yeah a lot of people are telling me to sell it and build another one. I think I'll just beat the shit out of this one instead lol



On a side note; I painted it yesterday, took me 7 hours, countless cans of white primer, and a fuckload of prep work. I got some pics of the finished product, I missed a few edges here and there when I was taping, but hey it's a bush truck and the paints just gonna get fucked up anyway. Which is why I took pictures while it still looks nice lmao

I also plan on taking the 'Sport' pinstripe off with a heat gun once the paint has cured a few days. That should leave a nice black pinstripe down the side of the truck, I'm really hoping that works out nicely. I also have to put all the decals back on that I took off. Then I want to stencil some stuff on in 'Hunter Green', I'm thinking some maple leafs, maybe bugs bunny, Charlie Sheen :dontknow: . I'm up to ideas

Haha thanks man, I think so too lol

The Sport stripe worked out pretty good I think. Not perfect, because the 20+ year old factory stripe was curling on the edges in some spots when I painted over it, but it came off pretty easy after some persuasion with a heat gun, and doesn't really look half bad. The paint job on the driver door kind of has a 'cloud' look to it where the blacks is showing through. I kind of like it :dontknow:

it has never been aircared as its a whistler truck. it would probably pass though. and it has no carpeting or roof as I ripped them out cause they were moldy, gonna tar the floor this week and patch some rust holes. Mechanically its a great truck.

But, I don't wanna sell it, at least not until it's actually done.

Oh yeah, I also got my maple leaf stencil done! I only painted my back bumper a little green... Not alot, really :roll eyes

Doesnt matter cause I'm going to replace that bumper eventually anyway.
