So,

Here we go,

Now the final stretch of this thing. Im so stoked that its painted and
ready to be put back together and hit the road.

Apparentlly this thing has been off the road for over 5 years so
its soon to be rolling under its own power. Woot Woot!!!!

All Primered

Jambs are painted!
Image

They look so funny without the gates
Image

Hardware
Image

Ooooooohhhhhhhhhh Yeah!
Image

Window Frames
Image

Image

The outside of the gates are nice, but since I plan on actually using this truck, the inner frames are
a bit beat up still. So they will get a coat of spray on bed liner
Image


I have more pics but I need to upload them and shrink them.

Im gonna string the harness this weekend and hook up some power to it.
Im gonna put the narrowed beam in and bleed the brakes, color sand and buff it and hopefully assemble the window frames.
Then its time for the motor and down the road.

The rear has Porsche 944 non turbo rear disc's and I'm waiting for some clips to come in. They should be here next week sometime so then I can have a E brake.

I also have to install some smaller tires up front to match the rear. The goal is to get this thing on the ground yet still be able to drive around without having to worry too much. hahahahahahha!!! :mrgreen:
