Let's see your transformations.I'll start
>>20075705how did you fix the rust that was under the outside body panel?
>>20075705That's an example of why I would never move to wear they salt the roads.
>>20075711I didn't touch the rust underneath. My repair isn't perfect, was just so I could repaint it. Before that rust gets to be an issue, I'll have either sold the truck or replaced the bed. >>20075722Yeah, the prairies of Canada suck for that, among other things.
>>20076481and 1300$ in parts and a shitload of labor later it runs and drives perfect. body work was only about 1/3 of the total work, I did all 4 corners of new brakes suspension and tires, water pump+it's tensioner, drive pulley, and belt, serpentine belt + idler and tensioner, new clock spring and driver side seatbelt, HID ballasts, rebuilt seat hvac controller, rebuilt LED taillight and i'm certainly forgetting shit still
>>20076481>>20076488americans what are you guys even doing large v8 at the front BUT ITS IN TRANSVERSE FRONT WHEEL DRIVEwhat are you madmen even thinking
>>20076512torque steer will make you a man
Sometime in 2012 when I bought it with plans to just use it as is for hauling junk
>>200765456 years of weekends and about 15k later, and it's still not 100%
>>20076529the torque steer is SERIOUS. Flooring it with the wheel not straight looks like i'm trying to recreate the stability control light
>>20076651>you riced it outamazing
When I got it.
>>20076767i wanna do a peg stall with a bmx bike on your bumper
>>20076548looks good. love older trucks in white
>>20076767I'm willing to bet you "built" this for all your "haterz"
>>20076766>>20076767not sure if this was an improvement
>>20076767This just in, local Anon completely fucks a clean GMC truck, more at 11.
>>20076779>>20076795>>20076815>>20076870>>20077264BUNCH OF FUCKING HATERS MY TRUCK IS SWEET
>>20077268dig the suspension and wheels, but the bumper and stickers are gay
>>20076767I think it looks fun Anon. Make your vehicle for yourself
>>20076767When people roast your build but don't show theirs. So your builds fags.
And to think the only things I had planned when I bought it were some good lights and a camper shell
>>20077398Not a fan of the red, but it looks like a great companion for rural shit.
>>20077398Beautiful. You should always keep the decals there.How are these trucks?
>>20077268It was sweet when you got it, you wiggered it all up with the Instagram tier shit. Thankfully it's all reversible
>>20076512>put a heavier engine on the drive wheelsI don't see a problem with that :^)
>>20077427It gets me wherever I want with whatever I need to carry in the bed. Cant complain>>20077562The decals will probably one day go, as I plan on "painting" the entire truck in Raptorliner to get better protection against scratches and dentsAnd honestly, its a great truck. The engine is a tad underpowered, and it does have the Toyota-tax, but it has handled everything I've thrown at it, is a dream to work on, and it its in good shape
>>20077274 Yeah that's already off. I don't have a recent picture.
>>20077275The only good post in this entire fucking thread. Good job anon, looks sexy.
>>20076548Damn that’s a nice truck.
rest in pepperoni
>>20076766Wow. That thing is fucking immacu>>20076767
>>20076766>>20076767i keep looking to find differences hoping that they're different trucks... theyre notwgat a shame anon
When I bought it this year
Now, I had to get a new bumper because I crash into a Celica I painted the chrome to Black to have a more stock look what you think?
Lets yeet this wheat gamers
>>20080960>>20080966Always thought you fucked up a good car to make this so I hated it. Now I see it was always a piece of shit and you gave it a second chance.Based/10
when i bought it
>>20077275Looks sweet, anon. Gotta love the amount of wrap-around windows.
>>20081149and what it looks like now. haven't really done much aside from fixing the fenders and replacing the shitty megan racing coilovers with a set of ohlins.
>>20081149>>20081162so it's still shit
>>20081162Wheel choice is better anyway. The old ones scream I'm a vape lord stancenation yolo instagram faggot
>>20081162Mean. I appreciate that you left the spoiler on. Ohlins are high on my listAs for the thread just picture the same car without roof racks as the before.
>>20081179Don't you have a bus to catch?
>>20081179>(You)>>20081162Fucking noice, difference is like night and day even with just the wheel swap.
>>20081179And what do you drive?
Shortly after I bought it in December 2016
>>20081249most recently... wait I haven't fucking done anything to itshit
>>20081336>>20081345Nicely done, Anon, even answered to the wrong post.
>>20081349I'm about as retarded as the mustang
>>20081375Atleast you have the Mustang. My fucking car is stuck in the shop until they find the fucking fender!
My car has only gotten worse.No point to post pics cause the cosmetics you really only see in person. Pics have a hard time of showing the dents and broken bitsAnd it has no engine, and probably won't for a couple/few months.
>>20081249A respectable car for adults, Volvo S60.
>>20077275I think you are my neighbor
After(I haven't done anything to the body yet)
>>20078843is it bare metal? Do you have more pics?
>>20076487Why is that yank being carried around by Italians?
>>20083243a shit ton yeah
>>20083325'79 Calais. Always wanted to build a 'Super H/O'>HNNNNGGGHad white with dark red interior.Best looking Cutlass of the 78-80 era. water fall grilles were horrid.
>>20075705>not just lifting it and putting some fatass fender flares on itPffffft nigga u bush league
>>20084450>lifting it and putting some fatass fender flares on itCan't justify a lift, it sees too much highway driving. Would kill what little mpg's I'm already getting.I want some stock style fender flares, similar to the ones in this pic. Maybe this summer if the price is right.
still have other rims with summersfixed a ton of shit but it put my car in limp modeI think I need another/better wheel bearing
>>20075705>removing the sexy blue metallic for garbage fleet whiteYour taste are garbage and you should be ashamed.I hope you pulled the interior & engine before you painted this, otherwise we have another half asses paintjob on our hands.
>>20076767I know this isn't (You) but who the fuck would do this to their car, lets be real
>>20085082Removed the sexy, badly scratched up, dented, rusted, pock-marked exterior and replaced it with gloss white, the superior automotive vehicle colour? Yes I did!And I did it myself with a $60 spray gun with Tremclad, acetone, and a bit of paint hardener. No I did not paint the inside of the panels, nor did I mask off the bed :^)Yeah lemme just pull the engine real quick for a $200 paint job
>>20085346So you admit you did a half assed job instead of doing it properly.Thanks for the update shitlord.
>>20085397You can’t honestly expect a guy’s first paint job to be body shop spec. But what’ll likely happen is that I’ll paint inside the doors this summer and get it bed lined. If the engine ever shits the bed, then yeah I’d pull it and paint the bay of course. Anything else is more work than a rusty old 1st gen Silverado is worth
>>20085082>>20085397>Pull the engine for a paint job on a work truck>why you no spend thousands on a paint job for a truck worth $1500 that's going to be used and abused>wanting a flashy pickup truckPants on head retardedI painted mine with recreational fleet paint in my driveway for about $600 because I still use it as a truck
>>20081345How do you like your mustang? Do you have independent ear suspension or the stock suspension?
>>20081345Good looking foxbody >>20085346Any plans of painting the chorme black?
>>20086099I like the chrome bumper, so I’ll leave that.I don’t care for the chrome grille though. I plan on painting that black, but leaving the middle bar with the Chevy logo chrome.
>>20085423>>20085421>implying that becuase a vehicle is used, it has to be treated as such
>>20085519It's alright, trying to get rid of it.it's stock aside from a CAI from a previous owner
>>20087525You haven't taken off the front plate bracket yet? That's usually the first thing I do if I don't plan on using it.
>>20088112The screws are fucked and it's a pain to get them off so I just haven't bothered
>>20081520You in Texas?
