Day I bought truck. Has blown trans. And yes I towed it home in the snow!!



Next day at friends shop. Replace tranny



Around 3 am after trans swap, test drive and getting gas.



Months later decide to redo body an paint. Paint/body is worse than in the pictures. Started with the roll pan. Didn't like the style and the fiberglass pan it had when I bought it.



eBay tag box welded up and grinded corners



Rollpan welded/molded to bed. Tag box welded in and grinded.



Shot of rear the way I bought it

Piece from donor patched in



Kitty hair on weld seam



Light coat of body filler then skim coat of finishing glaze



Masked ready for primers



1 coat of self-etch & 4 coats of slick sand later.
