That is an awesome build!! We have some lucky children! My 14 year old and I are trying to get our 65 ready for him as well! It’s gonna be hard for me to hand over those keys though. 😂
Nice!! You got that right! I am told all the time I will be driving it more than him😂😂👍

Made some progress....

When we had originally got the truck my son wanted to paint it pearl white. We did the bed awhile ago and then he decided wanted to leave the truck red and keep it old looking on the exterior.
I got the fun part of trying to change it back from new and shiney to old and dull. The truck was originally teal and we want to keep some of that in it. After breaking out a soda blaster, spray gun and the airbrusher(hadnt used it in years), here is the bed.
I sprayed it with matte clear coat. The sides of the inside of bed will be done in black bedliner and then the floor will be oak with stainless.

thanks MrCos! not gonna go through it as it only has 40k original miles on it and it runs great. as for the tank, Its gonna stay in the cab. I did buy a new OER tank though.

on a side note... I installed the new steering wheel. Also found I had a bad horn relay so replaced that. I now have the inside all closed up so I can get started on the exterior of the cab.

You are definitely an encouragement. Where did you source the replacement tin in the cab?
