Bed assy. Also bought some new tubs. Widened them 3.75 inches. Also bought a F150 seat. This has since been reupholstered.
Mocked up the bed on the truck. Rode around without the bed wood for a few weeks..
The tailgate is on!!! Just in the nick of time. First show I did not have a tailgate on. The second show, I installed it about an hours before I went to the show.
First show - Quaker Steak and Lube October 16 - took Best of Show in my class (60-70 cars and trucks)
Second show October 23, 2011 - took Best of Show out of 151 cars and trucks
Also got a photo shoot for either Truckin or Street Truck magazine
The last two pics show the photographer, and the pic that he took. The last pic is what he called a vertical picture, when he said are pics for the front cover of a magazine. We'll see
Looks like the photo shoot I had done a few months ago will be out in Feb 2012
[h=1]Custom Classic Trucks Magazine[/h]From what I heard, it's 5-6 page article with a centerfold. Sweet. Can't wait to see it.
I found out my truck has a 7 page feature in Classic Custom Truck Magazine.
Still can't find the magazine, but I found it online and have 10 issues coming (February, 2012)
I heard I have 7 pages including the front "Contents" pages (2) along with 2 other double pages and a single page.
My first feature (I have 4 show worthy trucks)
TAZ just been looking @ you videos ,boy i would love to have ago of that, the lump sounds the nuts ,and the paintwork is awesome ,all i can say is keep up the gooooood work mate:bigokay::bigokay::bigokay:
Hi Taz, i've just brought a used 2000 green ford focus with a zetec engine on the net from Japan. Gettin it in a months time. I do not like the stock green but have to keep the car green due to stiff regulations here on color change. I like your lime green on your truck. I would like your help on getting a similar shade for my car. I want it lime green and when hit by the sun should show some yellow-gold in it. Please just remember that here in Zambia, I can only order powder pearls online from the states to mix in clear that i can buy locally. I can't buy liquid paint online. So your advise must concentrate on dry pearls. TCP global stock HOK, PPG and kustom shop pearls and flakes. Any ideas what would be close to what i'm looking for? Thanks for your help in advance.
Tough question...not for sure on this. Do you have any pics of your current paint job. Did you plan on just using your current paint job as the base for the paint job. Then alter it with pearls over it?
