Yep. And that's why they call it "bodywork" and not "bodyfun". Lots of hard work. Sore back, shoulders, fingers, bondo buggers,
No shortcut.

Fine job you guys are doing.

If you don't mind me asking what is the darker brown color in your rendering?

Did you get the 6.2L? That is a nice looking truck (new one, old one will be amazing looking). I bought one last year and wanted the 5.3 for mileage. It seems the 6.2 beats the 5.3 in that department all day long. I may have to trade mine in.

Beautiful truck! I've been following this build for years. Nice to see it almost done. The new truck is sweet also!

Frank, I recently picked up a 2012 Yukon Denali AWD with the 6.2. I wasn't really looking for one with the 6.2, but it seemed like a decent deal so I bought it. After driving it for a while I love the 6.2 and I am so glad I got it!

we're still at it guys...between that and million other things, lol chassis is all painted and fully assembled, motor, tranny and rear end is all painted and installed. Just waiting on my headers to get back from being coated and then the exhaust will be hung. We just nailed down a paintcode for the yellow color in the moldings, that way all the NOS trim color will be consistent. Also just did a handful of spray outs for the main color on the truck, thinking of changing it slightly. Already had 2 guys copy the color on their build so It's time to tweak it just a shade or two from factory.

Re: off it goes

A lot accomplished since I last checked in. Great to see the progress, although I will admit to some twinges of sadness seeing that beautiful metal work covered by paint. I have full confidence that the paint will be beautiful as well, but that metal... Nice new pickup, and what's the latest with the big rigs?

Re: off it goes

Amazing as always, I'm excited to see the slightly new color and maybe even some under truck pics of the sweet frame stiffener and exhaust

In relation to an earlier post from you having noticed I'm in Lacrosse and you deal with River States Freightliner here....I almost took a job in parts there a little while back. Seems like a really good company.

That part is what is covered by the inner fender that they built.
