1981 Courier

Post by RewT » 16 Jan 2013, 10:13

This little truck came to the shop for storage, the PO wanted to store it here and put it up for sale to pay the balance that was owed to the guy he got it from. I decided to buy the debt and finish the sanding and throw a paint job on it and sell it.

This is what I started with.

Getting a good deal is no reason to accept sub-par work, since making it right costs more later.

So I finished sanding it and then masked it all off and got ready for paint.

And the best part of the whole deal, The new owner paid the shop to install new leaf springs and remove the lowering blocks and new coil springs in the front to bring the truck back to stock height.

I also fixed the wiring issue the truck had, And fixed and installed the wiper arms. The new owner is still driving it daily and couldnt be more happy with it.
