I 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.

>>20075722
Yeah, the prairies of Canada suck for that, among other things.

and 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

The decals will probably one day go, as I plan on "painting" the entire truck in Raptorliner to get better protection against scratches and dents

And 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

Can'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.

Your taste are garbage and you should be ashamed.

>>20085082
Removed 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
>>
>>20085346
So you admit you did a half assed job instead of doing it properly.

Thanks for the update shitlord.
>>
>>20085397
You 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
