I have a 94 f150 with a 4.9, single cab, long bed, C+ body. It is high time to get a paint job before the rust gets any worse. Ive done a good deal of the mechanicals so far:
valve cover, side cover, oil pan gaskets
rear end seal
radiator / brake hoses / lines
rear wheel cylinders
brake pads all around
it runs really well, AC is cold, 19+ mpg on the highway, zero oil consumption / drips.
here's the general parts list so far:
new used rear bumper
new front hood
OE alloys (probably will be powder coated)
front fenders (is it possible to get fiberglass front fenders?)
new front bumper
rear wheel well patch panels
new rear tailgate
as of now i'm looking at broncograveyard for these parts. Their prices are good, and I can cut out 336 dollars by just driving there rather than ordering them.
Now I need suggestion:
I do NOT want my truck to rust. what can I do? rock gaurd the inside of my fenders? any good tips will be appreciated.
Do you guys know of better places to get these parts for cheaper? I intend to do all of the prep work (or most of it) myself, then farm out the painting. I also intend to por-15 my frame, then top coat it. Also, I will undercoat the cab / bed.
What am I forgetting?
thanks for the help!
