Man, you have done one hell of a job on your truck, you have good taste!
I've been doin mine up, but run into different problems as I go, but she's a commin!!

Ya could just keep the black wheels and change up, when ya get bored with one just put on the other!

If ya like go check out my truck, it's under 87 STX clean up project!

Keep up the good work!!
George.

Thanks man! I try to keep it as factory as possible.

And holy hell man, I would just cringe if I saw that amount of rust on my truck! Lol.

And I sold the steelies a while back because hours at my job were sparse and I needed the money/ space in my garage. Now I'm living in an apartment so I can't even store another set of wheels anywhere lol.

Yeah, I'm the same way, I generally like little changes. Wheels, lights, grill and trim, but this time I went with a different (not stock) paint job!

As for the rust, wasn't too bad for a 25 yr. old truck, I cleaned it up. The shocks were probably the worse part of it, looks like they were from the factory!!

I know about the money and space thing, I have a 2 1/2 car garage and a 24x12 shed and still don't have enough room, and never did have enough money!! LOL!!


Thanks for checkin out my thread, and I'll be keepin an eye on yours!! I'll have some more pix up soon, prob. after I do my Body Mount Bushings!!

George!!

If I'm not mistaken, Bwads truck is an XLT with a front clip conversion making it look like an edge then lowered. You can pretty much lower any edge with little to pay in parts and tools.
