    Not sure why it wasn't painted right away? IMO just get the rockers and bed painted right away. I wouldn't of even bothered putting the fenders and doors on before it was painted. Seems like 1 step forward 2 steps back??

    The frame guy i use doesnt paint, he only installs things like a rocker panel and puts on door and fenders to make sure everything is aligned and pulls if things need to be pulled on the frame.

    Got to transfer all of the front components from the damaged original door into the new door shell, all the locks, sliders, window and wiring harness etc. Everything closes like new and nothing is misaligned. Time to do the rear door.

    Got a chance to finally finish both front and rear door internal guts swap, what a pain!! But both doors are finally finished and installed and fit perfectly. Im so glad i didnt have to paint anything yet, fender or doors. The bed and the rocker panel will be painted, but thats something i cant go around. Getting so close! cant wait to finish and start doing upgrades!

    I had a dirty problem with the truck about a month ago, i thought i had resolved the issue that i thought would last a big longer than it did, but sadly the bandaid lasted less than expected. So i had to tackle it once again and fix it right so it doesnt come back again, it sucks, but it is what it is [​IMG]

    You're a real fuck stick for letting your kid play around a truck that is only supported by a jack. Realistically you're an idiot for not using a jack stand, but you're letting kid under there. You need to be taken out back and disposed of.

    IMO, it's one thing to put yourself in danger working on a vehicle. But your toddler that doesn't know any better? Imagine how terrible you would feel if the truck were to fall off of the jack and crush him. Use your fucking brain, dumbass. Safety first.
