Thanks guys,

 

Gary, it will be the same color, I am have it done, that silver is mostly metallic I have not shot that for more years then I can remember.

 

Rob, I didn't call anyone, I just got up on Saturday, said it's time and busted it out.

 

Ben, I really hope it looks nice, for the cost of paint work now days, it better look great.

Very cool Wes! I cant wait to see a freshly painted resurected 2nd gen! 

I wish I could do that with Babe! But I would actually have to get it running in order to get it to a body shop.

You should get it running again, then get it repainted, it's only time and money.

I was over there last week and they were working on it, there was a few more dings then I thought, but not bad, I got a call from them today wanting some answers, but I didn't ask when it may be done, if I had to guess I would say just after the first.

Sounds like they got busy with repairs, so it will be at least another month, but that is ok with me, the pick-up get to sit in a nice warm shop.

No pic's but it is happening. The box is off and repaired, most of the sanding is done, then they will block it out and get paint on it.

Well.... Maybe.... Perhaps.... Well let the pics go for this week. HOWEVER, you have your cell phone with you most all the time! Hint hint!
