Got some work on the hinges done today. Also primed some of the body panels. Had a little issue when working on the hinges. One of the holes that I tapped had a bur. I locked up the bolt and snapped the head off. Broke out the blue wrench and the WD40, and might have started a little fire nothing bad just made a lot of smoke lol.

Got some work on the bed done today. Mainly just scraping the "Sportruck" decal off the sides so I can paint it. I also was able to get one of the fenders trimmed. Was just able to get that one side done before my last cut wheel gave out. (good thing for safety glasses ) did think it was pretty cool that since the PO for some reason painted part of the bed black that when I scrapped the vinyl off the "Sportruck" was still there lol

Got the bed pretty much ready for paint today. Will prime it sometime this week but will probably won't color for a little while.

Got the first 2 coats of primer on before I finished for today. This is probably how it will sit for a little while. Next main thing is the fuel pump assembly. Will be ordering the adapter rings early next week after I get the gears done on my Cherokee.





Took the 35" spare from my cherokee and rolled it under the bed's fender well to see what it looked like. About 3" too tall but I think it looks good!
