Thanks to RakkasanScout187 for giving me a hand with things.

Here's a few pics of the progress.....

The day I bought it (I found it in Phoenix AZ after searching for a suitable 4X4 7.3 ECSB with a manual 6 speed trans for over 4 months. I flew out there from Arkansas and drove it back)

The $800 was to fix a dent on the passenger bedside, some scratches on the driver's side door, straighten the frame (we discovered it was bent while updating/replacing front end components) and painting the matte black from the body line down.
