Update time!

Epoxy primed the main floor and hatches, and decided to just shoot the bed with raptor liner. So cuffed everything down and spot primed thee bare metal bits. Got it all lined and looking good.

After i let it sure for a solid week, started getting all the details finished up and bolted the bed down!

Took her to the gas station for the first time in over 18 months, truck felt solid but the gas fill wasn't working the way i wanted so going to have to re work that a bit. Getting exhaust raised and exiting the bed on the 23rd!!

Alright so the truck is finished as far as my work goes, it's now back in the owners hands to get body and paint, interior, and possible motor.

So like I said last time the gas filler was not allowing all the gas to enter the tank and had some coming back out spilling on the back wall so ended up carefully cutting the old fill out and making a new riveted in angle piece that holds the fill at a 27 angle or so which matches the factory gas tank fill angle, as well as raised as high as I could get it. Gave her a test and we got no leak back issues! Not the cleanest look but I choose function over from on this one, especially considering it's the gas fill lol.

After that it was time to get the exhaust raised by my local exhaust shop. Main concerns coming in was tuck it above frame, exit out the side of the bed, and raise the y pipe cross over to be above the frame since it's a v6. We got just that! Or close to it... exhaust is tucked above frame but the muffler does stick below frame by a 1/4" which flexes when it lays out to sit flat frame. But if they do decide to drag the truck... the muffler will get beat up. ( side note you should see the bottom of my truck the exhaust is far from round😂&#128514

Anyhow truck lays frame now besides resting on cross member welds, although I'm sure those wont be a problem forever lol.

My job is done a short job turned in to 1.5 years, way longer than I first anticipated... o well. I'm pretty pleased with the work I put in the truck although like most of us there were things I would tweak or change, non the less cant wait to see it painted with interior I'll try to remember to post updates as they get stuff done.

Until the next build,
keep on truckin' ✌

Just spotted this thread.

WOW, mad skill set there!!!





Hey Scrapingpavement, if ever get a chance to take more PICs of the truck, please do share.
Would luv to see it complete, with paint.

Also, did you tell Matt and/or Christian about the site?
Killer job dude!!!

If I remember it correctly, I saw that exact Asanti wheels on 4wheelonline before. But I think it's out of stock now. What particular Black Label rims are they?
