    I have beat the piss out of this shitty old truck for years and it was time she got a little love. Plus, the neighbors were giving her the evil eye....

    Her Krylon flame job was falling off.

    And, she had popped out a few rust spots.

    Plus, the wheel and tire package wasn't very cool.

    So, she went into the shop for some patch panels and bodywork.

    And here she is.

    Yea, I know another flat black truck...But this truck has been black her whole life, it is all she knows. She's gonna get a bit of pinstriping, but that's about it. She is much happier now.

    See ya, -Abone.

    Wow, badass truck dabone!!!

    I might have asked you in the past, but I probably forgot; how did you get your truck to sit down low like that? And did you cut into the bed?

    I dig it and I've always liked that body style of the ford trucks.

    What pin striping plans do you have? I look forward to seeing what you do with that.

    After watching you put your Merc together on here,I'm guessing it took you about,oh,maybe 2 or 3 hours tops to redo your truck...looks good
     
  23. After seeing your truck with and without the flames,,,I'm thinking it's about time I did the same thing to my ol black 65 Ford truck with worn out peeling old flame job,,,might even look worse than yours did.

    The truck looks good man. HRP

    black is the new black!
     
  25. i like it. are you gonna put a logo on the door? that would look cool
     
  26. The truck looks great! I like everything about it, and I have a '62 Mercury grill on a truck that I am scrapping out that would look very cool on that truck. Keep up the good work.
