Re: Project ''Second Time Around''

The door jams, firewall, and fenders. Then the cab and doors. It had some orange peel, but for the most part it turned out good considering it was painted in my garage.

Re: Project ''Second Time Around''

Re: Project ''Second Time Around''

Bed wood: the wood is oak chair-rail I demoed off a job; we throw stuff like that away all the time. It was cut to fit then painted with stain & Polyurethane 1 step, classic black. The metal strips are 1/2'' square tube.

Re: Project ''Second Time Around''

Here are some pics from a show in Layton. The other trucks are from Utah Severed Ties.





















The last few months have been totally awesome. I really had to push myself to get my truck done on a deadline. It was amazing to see it come together like it did, in the time it did. I've enjoyed the few shows I've been to and look forward to the rest of the car shows this summer and fall. I'll add more show pictures as they come along. A few people deserve a special thanks for the things I had help with; Dayle, Glen & Reid at Prophish, Chappy at Sinister Fab Works, Skinny at Black Night Auto Detailing.

Re: Project ''Second Time Around''

Looks good man! The black and white reminds of the "black widow" 57 Chevy 150s...

Re: Project ''Second Time Around''

Thanks for following along. I was going for something that was classically simple but still unique enough to be noticed.

Re: Project ''Second Time Around''

Just read your whole trip on building this truck. What a JOB !!!! It looks JUST AWESOME !!!! The work you did was second to none--all pro for sure. I will be heading down this winter to try and find a 95-98 chevy to work on up here in the Great White North. Having being on disability for the last 12 years(back injury) sure brings alot less to the table for doing your own work but it doesn't faze you in the dream dept.--and I dream of a truck like yours everynite,Thanks for all the pics and info over the last few years of your life--It was a great Read !!!!

Wow, thank you. I would like to apologize for the l-o-n-g delay in responding. I lost my job back in July and started my own company in September. I had to go back to school to get the necessary qualifications. So again, sorry I missed this. I am doing well and getting back into it.

I appreciate the positive input. I've had a lot going on with this build. It took a back burner several times due to life circumstances. I've always dreamed of finishing this truck and I've always been into the street truck scene. I'm glad someone else appreciates the work that goes into a truck like this! It most definitely helps to be able to do as much work yourself as you can. And just so you know, every single one of my builds have been budget builds and there have been A LOT of Saturday's spent at scrap yards and trading with friends. I've wanted to do some finish pics of the truck that are better quality, now that I have a bit more time, I will get some of those on here.

I still have it kicking around. It's in really good shape. Couldn't get myself to throw it away.
