    Got some work done tonight. Picked up the fiberglass from SDHQ this afternoon, and got over to the shed at like 11pm, work till about 1:30. Going back in about 6-7hours to get back on it! with school+work all week, it makes it impossible to get over and work on it, so i gotta get as much done over the weekends as possible. But here is what I got done tonight.

    Dont mind the shitty fitment, nothing is final, just thrown up for a pic, will be painting them all up soon, and i got an extra pair of 1.5in wheel spacers, going on the rear asap! haha

    How's the JB weld holding up on the tank? I had to JB weld a hole on the tank on my old 1 ton cummins. It held up great. I drove it about 60k miles with JB weld before selling it. Good stuff. Love the truck btw.

    Thankyou, and I would like to say its holding great but.... It's not at all:eek: as its getting hotter here in az, the pressure from the tank made it leak a lot, so I'm going with a fuel cell instead of a stock tank.

    more progress.. bedlined inside of bedside on the truck and the inside of the front fenders. painted the front ones gloss black as well. Bedsides are getting bedlined on the insides and painted gloss black tomorow. probably gonna buy a few cans of clear coat to make them shine. seem kinda dull for gloss black, but anyways few pics:

Another thing, the front Mid travel is gone (uca's+coilovers), sold to another member (tuckytaco). truck is looking naked!:eek:
