The guy that put in the bedliner is a friend of a friend and he also did the paint.
I forgot to take before pictures of the bottom corners of the box where it rusted away compleatly. along with the huge dents in the wheel wells in the box

Plans? new tires and wheels and not sure what else

looks good man..but that bed liner stuff would make me sooo mad. Are they going to fix it?
Cant realy do much since its already dryed. I need to get some plastic pieces to go around the box lip and the top of the tail gate. I dont want my canope to scratch my paint, the canope is only going to be used for camping, Already have 2 girls that will join me in there since they hate sleeping in tents

I realy need to get a CD player for my truck. It only has a AM radio :haha:

The dumbo mirriors are staying... There geting replaced with some chrome ones that I took off a blazer that was going to the junk yard that was in my uncles tow yard.

Paint turned out ok. Looks great from 10 feet away but if your upclose you will notice some stuff. Along the bottom of the truck the body the painter sprayed boxliner then painted over it. Should protect it from rocks since im going to be doing alot of offroad driveing


Yeah for a old company truck it turned out nice. Theres only 140,xxx km on it (80,xxx miles)

Thanks for the complements
