Took most of the weekend to get the truck washed, cab roof and hood buffed with swirl remover, entire truck paint sealed, then waxed. Cleaned the inside too!

Almost done with my "mini" restoration. Here's some pics






Ready for the Dustless blasting guy to show up.

Best $300.00 I could have spent.

I used Eastwood's Extreme Chassis Primer and Paint (satin black) Seems to be a very tough finish, only time will tell how well it will hold up. Had the rear end powder coated, new leafs, shackles, shocks, gas tanks, etc,etc......

Frame after 1st coat of primer

Ignore the exhaust pipe for the drivers side. That is my temporary fix until I get it to the exhaust shop.

I'm guessing taking the whole truck apart completely? Agreed, looks great.

Default My 94, the year I graduated.

It's a workhorse with the 4.9 that has 370,000 miles and it takes a daily beating. I have future plans to turn it into a sleeper though.
