A few pics

Woke up this morning to get to canadian tire for some rubber guard, but decided to get some pics in first, this is right downtown and for some reason there's a river lol
















Then got home and started painting. All I have done now is the part that sticks out under the cab. Stuck out like a sore thumb so I toned it down..

Before


After


Then got the part between the tailgate and bumper






More to come during the day!

Headed to get more rubber coating with my buddy (08 Ranger Sport, not on the site) to do our truck but decided to go offroading first... in an abandoned town

Went to that river again but someone was unloading there boats FOREVER so we decided to leave, but without taking pics of this....




Yes, that is a standard Jaguar X-Type towing a boat, and the car was effed up! Rear lip was torn off on one side, front emblem missing, both tail lights broken, 2'' holes under each headlight, big scrape on the front bumper and the gas cap was ripped off. Oh and he had a note in the window saying "Blown Clutch, will be back later".... no ****


So we headed out to a military/civilan area, which is an abandonned town they practice in but weekends we're allowed in, maybe not for what we were doing but whatever, we didnt destroy anything





Rear tire was rubbing the flare


Little fun section (vids) Phone was being ghey

Thanks! Good enough for a cell phone lol

Just finished doing the rear wheel well section of the frame, only the side for now until i get a good jack to be able to take the tire off easily.

Thanks! But.... I need a real camera and not just my phone lol

Little Update:

Tonight after work was a busy one for me, pics will be up tomorrow, but I did the whole frame except the front and rear because of the bumpers, middle skid plate, hitch (was rusting and a car hit it so it was a bit scratched), rear struts, axle and diff as well as the rusted driveshaft. So far I have used 3 big cans. Next up is the rear skid plate, and under the rear undercarriage. I want to get the most I can under the truck to prevent rust as much as I can.
