Had a small issue with the front shock reservoirs - the way they were mounted the schrader valve contacted one of the tower mounting nuts at flex and sheared the valve off. As there were no other ways to mount the reservoir to the shock, I fabricated some T mounts.

Got it about 98% stripped down to where I want it. It looks so sad and pathetic now....

Will be masking and sanding tomorrow, then off to paint in a few days.

lift the roof just from the back and take the side windows out, that will give you room to paint the inside of the tub and floors from outside the truck with comfort as well as not leaving the top part of the capping different colour.

Also go to Harbor Freight and get an Air Brush kit and paint the bulkhead

Why not take the roof off completely to include side panels and front wings?

The whole inside is line-x'd, no need to paint.

I have all the pro painting gear, including an airbrush.

Y'all are welcome to come over and help.

I think the question becomes where do you stop? I mean you might as well pull the windshield, and then....

But yeah I would pull all the glass and the top if it were me

Yep, you have to draw the line somewhere. This is a trail rig, not a show truck. I had to find a balance somewhere. The only evidence of the old color will be the inside of the windshield frame - period. And that color is Stratos Blue. If I get really motivated I might airbrush the windshield, but it's not likely.

Think about pulling the glass....it's not that bad, new seal is like $50. Looks like hell when there's overspray on the windshield seal.

Of course. I have new paint coming as the stuff I ordered isn't quite what I wanted, but I may still use it. It's more flat than I planned, but works with the flat/satin of the other stuff.

Masked the truck, did a few small bondo touch ups, and a test spray today.

Where do you get your paint masking supplies in the area?

Here's a somewhat blurry, dark photo of the how the paint turned out. I wouldn't paint a stock truck this color, as I think you need lots of satin black to break it up, but mine should come out pretty close to the Corsetti truck I posted photos of earlier.

Here's a shot from last night after getting the hood and cage on. You can start to see the contrast of the satin black against the semi-gloss olive drab. Sadly, as I look at the pic I realize I forgot to install the vents before putting the cage on.

I also dinged the paint in a few places getting the cage back on so I have some touch-up to do.
