I couldn't get any close ups, but man I forgot how long body work takes. I need to be careful when I do get back to cut and buff, the rest of the truck never has been so I don't want a super awesome nice door and the bed and rest of it to look like a good quality job. The rest of the truck is probably equal to a paint job on a new factory vehicle, very nice, but not super show quality. Here's the few pics I did shoot.

Thank you guys so much for the tips and the help, I don't think I could have done it without you!


Awesome, it's looking great! It looks like you have done a fine job!
