1999 Ford Restoration Project

Well I thought I'd share my project that I have been working on for the last 2.5 weeks with you guys. It sounded like it should be really easy in the beginning, but by the time I was done I found out just how much work it is to change the color on one of these trucks.

I bought this truck back in March from a member of this board. This is what it looked like prior to starting any of the work



Then the teardown begins


I bought 4 new doors and a new bed for this project to help get rid of some of the rust issues that it had. The truck was from indiana so It had some rust on the bottom of the doors and the underside of the bed. The cab is really solid though so we didn't have to do anything there luckily.



Here we are starting the reassembly process on the exterior.


While I had the entire interior out I decided to go ahead and put sound deadening material all over the floor, rear wall, pillars, and doors.


We slid the new headliner in right before installing the rear window. Side note: is there any way to get the headliner out without taking the rear glass out? I was taking it out anyway for paint, but I was just curious.


I then put all the interior back in and got her all cleaned up. Here are a few pics of the finished product:

wow man, thats alot of work but looks damn good I was going to go with some flat black but after I started looking at how much a damn pain to go from red to black I changed my mind to keeping the red and doing some flat black lol. I might try and go with flat red but its alot of work to match all the little areas on these things

Looks good tho man, I wish I had the guts to just tear into her and paint her lol Im waiting for spring tho......

I didn't acutally use the "dynamat" brand material. I used the material that I got from B-Quiet sound deadening material or something like that. The nearly 100sf that I used ran about $240ish if I remember correctly. It works amazing and by far the best money I have spent on the truck.

ckanderson,

I'll get some better pics of the finished product when I can get it washed up. It's been raining here for the last 2 days so I'll see if I can't get it cleaned up a bit this evening

Highbeam,

It took 1 3/4 quarts of paint to get the coverage we needed. And that does not include the inside of the bed, as I have a line-x liner already.

Thanks for all the compliments guys! It was a heck of a project, but I am glad I did it. Now it's on to fuel system mods and maybe an adrenaline pump. I am trying to do anything I can to quiet the injectors down. If it weren't for them, the truck would be nearly silent going down the road (relatively).
