6 months agoThat truck, from here, looks like new. Good job VT and now you can enjoy it for many years to come.
6 months agoGood morning guys, I was a little pissed about the race too Dave, I worked pretty hard trying to get that bumper on in time to enjoy the race and I barely got started enjoying when rain delay, rain delay , rain delay Postpone.
Mcg, I still have to reinstall my tailgate if the guy ever gets it painted, along with the two front fenders, and he is going to lin-x the fender flares at some point in time. It is a work in progress, do not know when if will get to finish it. Then I may have the whole thing repainted, at least fix the little chips in the paint and wet sand the whole thing and repaint the little chipped marks , and then spray new clear coat for the whole truck.
6 months agoHi everyone, I stopped by line-x in the morning like I usually do yesterday and today. The owner told me yesterday morning that he was going to paint my fenders and my tailgate today. When I went by there this morning he wasn`t around, his father said he had gone to Savanah Georgia to the annual line-x meeting I asked how long he would be gone and he told me until Sunday.
I told him to take his time, but in reason. I didn`t intend for this to be a several month project. Also I hate being lied to , I will be on his ass like stink on schitt Monday. I need my tailgate on my truck, the front fenders aren`t a big deal, because I have the old fenders on there, but No tailgate, can`t haul anything. This makes about the third or fourth time he has promised and not kept his promise to get the tailgate done. I am about ready to get my parts back and just do them myself.
4 months agoWell I have finally got my truck painted and all the linexed parts back on. all that is left is for them to line-x the inside of the bed, I am just waiting on them to call me. The paint job turned out pretty good, they used a one stage Natural white, Toyota paint number 056.
Anyway the truck looks pretty good, I am pretty pleased with all of the work I have put into it.
Oh and I ordered those bed decals offline and installed them new after the paint job was completed.
4 months agoLooks like it turned out pretty nice. Cheaper than new.

Wow, I`d have to look back at earlier posts to determine just what model year this truck was........but now it looks like new.
Drive it like you stole it.............with the way it looks, you`ll make out when you get ready to part with it.
4 months agoI was on Toyota lot the last week and a salesman came to talk to me and I told him I wasn`t in there to buy anything that my son was working there. He really liked my truck it is a 2001 I bought it brand new January 2001 and it has 254,500 miles on it. Still drives and rides good, all you need in a truck, it is 4x4 and everything on it works. Anyway I told the salesman I wasn`t interested in selling or trading I had all the truck I needed, I don`t need car payments or higher personal property taxes.
I said besides ya`ll wouldn`t offer me schitt for the truck anyway, I told him that McGeorge Toyota only offered me 7,000 for my truck back in 2007, and now it is 19 years old. He said I could offer you 15,000 for it on trade. And I said I will remember that , but I am seriously not interested.
4 months agoDid real good Randy. Since I bought my F150 I realize that I`ve needed that thing a number of times. Makes life easy and I don`t miss the Vette. Come on down in October and we can go do some music.
4 months ago$15,000! Nice of him to make you the offer.
4 months agoPersonally I think he was lying, he probably felt safe telling me that with no one around and after I told him that I wasn`t interested in trading or buying. But the truck does really look pretty good.
