How did you roll the lip on the wheel openings?

I would guess with a bead roller.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Hammer and dolly and some patience, I think.

I used a body hammer and a solid dolly. Like this.

And one for those who do not check in very often.



Down to thinking about the exterior color again. No one really commented on the Rat Rod theme so I guess thats out.

Flat Black
Blue crush
Orange crush
Gunmetal gray

Looks great! Paint it gunmetal, but instead of a gloss clear use a flat or satin clear!

Not yet. The cab is at home and the bed is at work. As soon as the bed is in primer I will take the cab to work and bring the bed home. I could snap a few then. Maybe with both of them on work stands. I still have ton of frame nods to do before I can set them both on the frame.

I like all the color choices...in the end it's up to you. I just wouldn't do the red and black theme personally.

As far as color, I want a color easily mixed for repainting purposes. Someone could hit me, I could flop it, someone could be hating and key it. You never know.

That's why I stick to colors in the catalogs.
