As some of you may know, this was my last truck that I owned. I sold it off for an outrageous deal, but I felt that the truck was'nt worth keeping despite all of the modifications and restoration I did to it. Although, now that I own another truck, I can only come back the second time and make it twice as better!
A little history: I got this truck in 2004 for $300. Body damage was beyond affordable commercial repair. It had a rebuilt engine already in it. So from 2004 I started to work on the interior. After a while of holding onto my dreams, I finally had the opportunity to bring it into my schools body shop and repair it as much as possible. I believe all the pictures will explain themselves better then I can explain. I will take the experience from this truck and apply it to my 2nd one. This truck has taught me many lessons in bodywork. It worked out really well, because I plan on being an automotive repair technician. And this will only prove to help me in a portfolio! None of this could have happened if it were'nt for my teachers and their patients. I hope that someday, if any of you want to reach for the extreme, go for it! Putting all your effort into will someday pay you off in the end!
I did not totally finish all the bodywork on this truck. Since I sold it to the guy the truck had to leave ASAP. Most of the cab on the truck was straight, the driver door still opened up more than allowed since it was damaged. But, the truck bed was beyond commercial repair. Unfortunately, I could not get a bed for this truck! Mazda sheetmetal is hard to come by. So, therefore, I got a standard cab bed and patch paneled a few parts of the bed. Its still rusted and needs bodywork.
Get apart of the MaZda action!
