    time to remove the seat cover take it to get repaired. Have a buddy who does this kinda work, let's see how well he does. He said I can bring the seat he will do it for $100 or remove the seat cover myself and he will do It for $50. Never removed seat covers, time to learn something new lol

    Got the Seat cover back, it turned out really good, i wish everything always went so well haha. Another update coming hopefully tomorrow or so. Really cant wait to finish this truck. Found a shop guy who will repair my bottom rail section, i just now have to find the section and take it over to him to get it done, but thats the last major thing i need to do.

    The black door and black fender have arrived. Took a while but found them in black in great shape. These are straight from the factory with some defects here and there, they were also painted at the factory. These are surplus panels, meaning they were never installed on the truck because of some defect, such as a ding, a scratch, or a paint run, could be anything that doesnt pass inspection. I list all most costs in the description section to keep track of all of my costs so you guys have an idea of how much im paying for things and how much total so far.

    Got lucky and one of my friends bought a rolled over Sierra Duramax, He bought a cab from canada that he will use so he doesnt need this one, so he let me cut off the bottom rocker panel, it awesome that its in black also. I never did this a huge chop job because so i wasnt sure how long it would take, but gotta do what i gotta do, broke a bunch of cutting blades, but i need this section for my truck so gotta get it done !!!

    After breaking a bunch of blades, i couldnt finish the chop job, had to pick up better blades and come back to finish the cut because i had to run to work and had to drop off truck and the rocker panel at the frame shop for them to fit it in perfectly.

    Wait so you are replacing the rockers but you are happy that the do are truck is black. So you are not going to be doing the body work and paint that is needed after replacing this? Or are you just going to spray paint the seem. Sounds hack to me

    Have been getting lots of questions about how much I got it for and how much will cost to fix. Decided to make a list of things I have done and purchased so far. Got lucky and found 4 major panels painted already factory black. Fender, doors and rocker panel. -
    Here is the cost so far:
    -
    •Truck $16,800
    •Auction fee: $700
    •Dealer fee: $150
    •Towing $500
    •Upper control arm $60
    •Front Axle $100
    •New tire and mount $300
    •Smog test $50
    •Brake and light inspect $40
    •Truck scales $10
    •Alignment $50
    •Seat air bag $235
    •Seat belts x2 $150
    •Different Wheels/Tires $100
    •Seat cover repair $50
    •Fender black $350
    •Rear door black $350
    •Freight cost $100
    •Rocker panel $200
    •Front door $350
    •Freight cost $150
    •Rocker panel install $750
    •Roof airbags $1,100
    •Sold wheels - $1,600
    -
    Current Total: $21,045
    -
    I sold the fuel wheels that came with the truck for $1,600 so that puts me at Total of $21,045. I don't need to buy anything else major at the moment, feel really blessed with this truck. Once it's 100% completed I'll start doing upgrades to the truck to make it exactly how i have it pictured in my mind.

    im not sure yet, for now ill use filled to smooth out the seams, then primer and do a light coat of paint on the seams to protect it from rust because its starting to have moisture int he air in the mornings, then when im ready to spray the side of the bed ill do the rocker panel at the same time.

    The rocker panel that i cut off another black silverado has been installed, thus allowing me to put on new fender and new doors, finally its looking really good and exciting.

    You couldn't find new fenders/doors without dents? I'm feeling like when you are done you'll be around 25k in to this and have a truck that's in the condition of a 10-15 year old one cosmetically.
