Thanks guys! sorry no updates! work is absolutely dragging right now, and life is busy as ****. between the lack of money and time i havent even installed my cab lights or finished door panels. but hopefully here quick i'll have my transmission back in the truck and i'lll be more motivated to finish it then.

Thanks for sharing these pictures on cars... I think that this is the right place for me to have right stuff on diesel bombers. It is good to be here.

Its one of Real Tree's variations.

So getting so excited about the transmission has finally gave me motivation to work on another small project for the truck...

What to do with a broken A pillar and a piece of tubing...



Cut tubing into 5 chunks.



Glue Tube pieces to Broken A pillar and make one solid unit.



wrap it in magic blanket... and apply internet magic...




VIOLA!!! Instant 5 Gauge A Pillar pod!! (obviously not finished yet )

Got the pod mostly finished today. Its drying its last (hopefully) coat right now, then just need to sand it out, and maybe a little body filler.


Sanded out the first layer






applied a little more magic carpet to get the back end a better shape.





and hopefully its last layer.

Finished for now.... Got a couple high spots i need to knock down, but i'll worry about that later. My gauges come tomorrow, so waiting on them to test fit and modify whatever needs to be done to make them fit right. Then need to test fit it into the truck, then i'll pull it back out, sand out the last couple imperfections, apply the finish coat, and paint it
but other wise the shape wont change from whats here (at least changes you'll notice)



---AutoMerged DoublePost---

last piece of the puzzle just showed up. Off to the shop!



---AutoMerged DoublePost---

well lemme back track on my previous post . I was knockin down the high spots on the pod and it started getting a little thin. So i sprayed it, and layed one more layer of glass down. should be pretty much ready for the finish coat now after final gauge fitting. But this gives a pretty good insite to what its going to look like finished. Although im going to wrap half of it in fabric i think...

Pods finished! now i just need to buy my last two gauges.....






The bottom piece where it changes camo, is tucked behind the dash... I wasnt going to kill my self to make a piece you'll never see perfect .

when i get it installed in the truck, i'll get some better HD shots and some of it lit up.

---AutoMerged DoublePost---

Hellloooooo blind spot. haha (sorry crappy phone picture still)





Just came up with a killer idea to finish off my dash... its really going to bring out the country/farm boy in me, but should fit the truck theme excellent. stay tuned, ive already started...
