    Ranchero going home, and getting dropped off. Now needs to be color sanded and buffed. And the slow rebuild. 20150603_182514.jpg 20150603_184121.jpg

    Not trying to build a full show car, just a clean driver we can enjoy.

    Not much going on cause of work, but cleaned up the front suspension and chassis, and firewall. Got a lot of primer overspray. We will hopefully start building the front soon as time allows. 20150611_190822.jpg 20150612_183505.jpg

    Rolled it outside for a quick picture in the sun.
    Still have to align the front end, and start color sanding and buffing. 20150616_153124.jpg

    Started to color sand and buff.
    Clear is already pretty smooth so not too much sanding to get it flat. 20150617_142331.jpg 20150617_170855.jpg 1434659056206.jpg

    Wanted to update this topic. A good friend of mine purchased it from me and kept building it.

    Here's some photos on the way to the interior shop!

    Car is back up and running, side glass is cut and installed, rear glass is installed, all the side stainless has been polished and installed. Steady progress is happening. Should be done in the next few months! Will post photos when interior is done.

    Nice truck, at least you'll to get to cruise in it when its finished. Ive been struggling with getting mine done too, even thought I might have to let it go a couple times. Sometimes I wonder if its going to be worth all the sacrifices I've had to make.

    Here are some photos of interior. We wanted to keep it classic. (Don' mind the steering wheel.. lol)

    Sending bumpers out for chrome, and getting rest of the trim polished. IMG-20180130-WA0058.jpg IMG-20180130-WA0059.jpg IMG-20180130-WA0057.jpg
