Thanks... Two days ago I painted the bumpers, really cam out nice. Used a air spray gun I purchased in a yard sale. Works nice after I cleaned it real good.

Be painting the wheels Rust-o-leum red. If the wheels turn out nice I think I may also paint the wheol truck rust-o-leum red.. What ya think?.

i noticed that where the rust was on the roof, you use bondo to fix it. were they holes there, or just some surface rust? if there are holes, you need to redo it. the bondo isn't made for filling holes and will fall out/crack over time. it would be much better to cut out the bad section, and replace with metal.

It was done before with bondo. I noticed this when I was preping for soder. I was going to do it the old fashoned way with lead based soder.

As I was going along, I noticed it was done professionally with bondo before. Seems the hole, and it was a hole, rusted through from the inside out. I think what was done before was the gutters, and a little into the roof.

Needless to say, I wasent going to remove it all and re do it. I don't have those kind of tools anymore. Maybe when the financess get better I'll consider a body shop.... But for now, it'll work...
