before and after 96 7.3

Just thought I'd share my before and after pics of truck to you guy's to see what yall think. I baught this 1996 ford f250 last winter for 1,100 dollars with 163,000 miles, the bad was the tailshaft was broke and needed batteries and starter. Got all that fixed then about after 6 month's I had it i redone it, the next 6 month's of long and hard bondo work I got her done. ts 6 pos, 3 downpipe, 3 inch cowl hood, smoked cab light's, 285/75/16 recapped all terrain's, 6000k hid halo, f150 front bumper bed liner then glossed over.











got some rim's off my friend's 94 460 plast dipped and clear coated them

Lookin' good. The lights and grill are smokin, but doesn't that big hood cut down on visibility? My hood looks like ****, so I can't say much. How much did you pay for the recapped tires? Source? I've been thinking about trying to find a second set of rims for mine for winter and off-road driving.

Looks great, why flat bed tho? Is that an xl bumper painted? And how is the clear coat holding on top of the plasti dip, seems like a great idea there to keep it from ever coming off once you lay it on good

I chose a flatbed because I couldnt find a bed around here that didnt have a lot of dent's and rust, and with the flatbed I figured id never have to worry bout rust or dent's, and yes it is a xl bumper painted and the clear coat over the plasti dip is holding up real well I didnt like the dull look that it gave so that's why I put clear coat on top of it. And thanks terryknight
