Finally got the new truck together (Pics)









I had the entire 90 repainted, and the trim is all new with exception of mirrors and fender flares.
I had everything powdercoated again in semigloss black.

It looks like new and I am very happy with it all.

It took me less than a month, and most of that time it was at the paint shop.

Paint was around $4,000.00 and parts were around $1,500.00. Now I am just waiting on that new Badger II from Chris and then it will be done. (Yeah, right!)

I did all the disassembling, minor repairs to the interior/exterior, replaced most ot the hardware with stainless, replaced the exhaust, and did all of the re-assembly. Every peice of the 90 was painted separately.

Actually I am at the hospital with my wife where she is having pregnancy complications, and the wireless is extemely slow. I got tired of waiting on it to post and it somehow double posted when I re-clicked the reply button. Oh well.

Oh I am not trying to be a smartass. I wish my red 95 looked that pretty, just saw a chance to give out a little crap. Good luck on the pregnancy stuff, I have 3 kids, the real worrisome times are yet to come.
