    I wonder if a spray on bed liner would look like the vinyl top?

    It might; I think he’s just going to take it to Maaco and have them shoot the whole thing in the original color or something close to it.

    Got the top welded on; just did lots of little tacks on the lowest setting and did several passes until it was done. It looks pretty good; I’ll know better ones I get it ground down and get some filler on it.

    That is looking really nice! As fast as you work I'm surprised he isn't having you paint it. I'm sure it would be better quality than Maaco.

    Thanks; we talked about it but he’s not ready to invest in paint right now and I don’t want it sitting in my garage for several months. So I’m just getting the rust taken care of and shooting on some sealer, getting it mechanically right, and sending it home.

    Finished up all the patching on the inside. Now the lucky owner gets to wire brush everything down and hit it with POR15 while I focus on grinding the rest of the outside welds.

    So are you going to tell him about POR15 or let him wear some for a few weeks?

    Lol! Oh, he found out about it when he painted the front frame stub and all the components! I gave him rubber gloves but I probably should have told him not to wear short sleeves and shorts. ��
