The paint is done, she's all back together, probably go to Lowe's for some wood tomorrow to get the first scratches.

Thanks for all the support and advice along the way.

Gonna go finish reading that C-6 rebuild manual...

Thanks guys! I've never painted like this before, so I must say I am pleased. I'd call it a 30-40 footer, depending on sun angle , but hey, its a work truck, gotta get some scratches on it quick so it doesn't get babied.

I guess the paint isn't "totally" done, still gotta get the rhino lining in the bed, but that's low priority; needing further negotiations with Casey...

I like it! How do you like the full time 4WD? Are you going to stripe it like it was?

The fulltime 4WD gets in the way sometimes doing tight corners and generally bad gas mileage, but overall I don't mind it.

I've found the stripes at Green Sales, haven't ordered them yet but plan to.
