Well, here it is, My 1978 f-150. It doesnt look like much now. But i am working on it. I have been working on fixing that nasty bedside that you can see in t... Show morehe third pic. but other than that the body is straight. as soon as i get the body work done, i am painting it a custom mix off PPG aston martin viper blue with violet pearl. yes, i do all work on this truck myself body work, motor work paint work everything. i will keep you posted as soon as i get things done. Man, I wish money grew on trees.
well i decided to paint the one bedside that i have all of the body work finished on flat black. i think i am going to paint the whole truck like that. i am gonna do a poll and i want you guys to tell me the honest truth. i think it looks 100 times better than the grey primer that it was.
well i have the whole one side painted now.i dont think it looks all that bad. here is a pic of it.
i got a nearly perfect bed off of a 1988 f-150. i got hooked up and only had to pay 50 dollars for it. i will have pics of it up as soon as possible.
here are some more pics of my motor.
and here is a pic of my new tach
Okay so i finally got my old bed off..... It was a little bit more of a pain than i expected, but it was a learning expierience none the less.
So after i got the old bed off, i decided to start sandblasting the frame....here are some before and after pictures for your viewing pleasure.
Here is a pic of one of my new goodies. it is jet hot coated
And here is a picture of my new bed
so i got my new bed on and lifted the rear of the truck 5 more inches. i still have to install the 9" lift springs up front.
so as of now, the rear has 12 inches of lift and pretty soon the front will have 12 inches too
here are my new one chambers after i sandblasted them but before i painted them with a high temp black paint. Show Less
