Here a re few pictures of the paint process. Rinsed her off outside first . Started with a flat black on the lower side then finished with the green up top. Going to let it sit overnight then place one more coat of green on the cab. Then I begin the oh so fun job of cutting the bed. 20131004_173933.jpg20131005_175524.jpg20131005_175554.jpg20131005_195527.jpg20131005_195542.jpg

smoke. I would assume a good solid 200 man hours so far, between myself, brother and friends. And that would not be counting the hours , with beer in hand, talking about what we should be doing.

Wow that is nice. Whats going to be the length on the bed? are you keeping the spare tire and toolbox that was behind the cab so you can make your bed bigger?

Also whats the length of the cab now? how much room behind where the front seats are going to mount is there? I have a whole file on crew cab builds and trying to get as many tips and tricks as I can before I get my project. Granted im sending mine in when I get it to a fab shop.

One final coat of green this morning , and I am done painting with exception of the bed and touchups. I am no painter. Turned out well, not a show room finish yet at least I wont be afraid of scratch or two form a branch/tree.
Srodocker, I will try to get some measurements when I can crawl around without fear of damaging the paint.20131006_111948.jpg20131006_112004.jpg20131006_112020.jpg20131006_112050.jpg20131006_112110.jpg
