That color combo looks great on the cab, Cranky! Really nice.

Sad to hear about your cat, hopefully getting more done on the truck will keep you from worrying too much.

I bought new door locks from BJs a year or two ago and the lock gaskets worked well... I can't say the same for the locks but I don't mind having 2 different door keys because I added power locks.

Thank you, I really like the colors.


The cat is being very odd, he acts like he doesn't feel well but then suddenly does stuff like nothing is wrong and he's eating and drinking so I'm wondering if he is just not feeling well because of his allergies or if he is really dying but I guess time will tell, he made it through the weekend so if he is dying we will be able to use the people who come to the house if he needs put down.

I managed to press on with the truck today. I moved it out of the tent and converted it to a 10x15 so the yard guy can come out. I then finished stripping the hood and got the little bit of filler it needed done and got it primed. I also stripped the tailgate down to primer so tomorrow should be a little more sanding then I can get the last things painted with the tailgate lettering the day after, then I start putting everything together.

YOU STRIPPED YOUR TAILGATE?!? It looked sooo good before!!! Does that mean you have to re-do your "Gladiator" script?

Yes and yes


That was actually the plan all along. If you remember I originally wanted to paint the tailgate with lacquer so I didn't have to strip it to repaint but couldn't find any so had to use enamel. The enamel was very soft and instantly clogged any paper as soon as I started sanding so I took acetone to it and it wiped right off and left the primer behind ready to be sanded.


As far as the lettering and Gladiator script the color wouldn't have matched exactly so I had to redo them because of that and I bought what I hope is better fine line tape to get the Jeep lettering done and I still have the templates for the script so that shouldn't be too difficult.

Well crap!



I started painting all the stuff this morning and ran out of paint after only 2 coats on the hood. I had thought I had enough to finish but obviously I was wrong. I did order some more last week but it won't be here for a couple more days so I guess I will let this cure, then re-sand and lay on a couple more layers.


In the mean time I am going to start putting the truck together.
