Next, the tasks turned to the aesthetics. The goal was to restore the 2002 chassis, engine, and suspension to a new appearance, tidy up the underhood and floors on the cab, but not do any paint work to the outside of the cab or bed. We also wanted to paint all of our new bracket tree that we had made for the conversion. Apart it comes!

We had sent many of the parts of up to the media blaster, which revealed some areas that required repair.







We did not want to disassemble every single piece, so the super charger and engine would be cleaned and detailed as assemblies.

Next, many paint booth loads of parts would be cleaned, hung on racks, masked, and painted with the appropriate coatings. Most parts received black epoxy and then a black Imron industrial coating.

The chassis was also media blasted and coated with Axalta epoxy and Imron satin black paint.

With the cab off the frame, it was easier to access some of the areas that required metal finishing. These included filling unused holes on the firewall and finishing off the rear cut-out over the frame rails.







The finished firewall was primed and painted with Imron satin black.
