So jealous. I want to be there now, but i have a couple other items i need to get done first. I have a 1969 C10 with an LS i built last couple years and i need to remove the PSI wiring harness and install the new Holly Terminator MAX system i bought first, get that running good then move forward on the 1966. I cannot really complain honestly, this is a good problem to have, but i am jealous of your progress, it is looking great my friend.

Re: pdx-sanity66

Excited to see the colors soon. Looking great. Prep always sucks but man it's sure worth it. I need to get out and get a bunch or parts cut and buffed for winter. lol

Your paint work looks great TJ. I agree that good preparation is necessary. I am not going to paint the truck but I am looking for a painter right now. I know very little about putting down color and I've got enough invested in the truck to not risk messing it up.

Re: pdx-sanity66

I took a couple of days off on Sanity to do some chores and errands around our place. Sanity is back outside and I'm ready to get back at it. The passenger door is finished as far as I dare go and is back on the truck and aligned pretty well. I need to raise it up about 1/8". The pass. fender is ready to put back on, just waiting for the cowl extension. Both of the cowl extensions, the cowl, and the driver door and fender will get a little more epoxy on some small spots that I got over zealous and sanded to bare metal. They are all in the paint booth and will get sprayed today.

Re: pdx-sanity66

The body parts are back together for the last time until paint. Both doors, fenders, cowl extensions, and cowl are on and most of the alignments done. I have a few small adjustments to the cowl extensions and the hood still needs some finish sanding and adjustment but it is together. The roof and side panels are ready for paint. The next thing to do is the bed. I need to take care of a couple of small dings in the tailgate.
I also got my bed kit delivered from Mar-K and I just had to open the boxes and take a look at the white oak. I love it. I got Sanity out and cleaned off the dust.

Re: pdx-sanity66

looking very sharp - nice to get everything lined up and squared away before paint - that light timber will look great in the bed...
