    We started in February... did a lot of rust repair... to pillar, replaced rockers, floors, fender pieces... all the common rust issues on these body style trucks. Anyhow... thought I'd post some pics. She's root beer brown with gold flake and Wimbledon white (paint I had leftover from my '65 F100 project).... 20180511_180211.jpg 20180511_194847.jpg 20180512_140625.jpg 20180512_140647.jpg 20180512_144103_Burst011.jpg 20180513_121344.jpg 20180311_165835.jpg View attachment 3898743 View attachment 3898744

  26. The Root beer is beautiful! I lot nicer than my old '61. I see Andrew is working on a fender splice....I had to do the same thing on my left front also only I spliced in a new rear half. 61chevypu (2).jpg
