Started out with my 2006 F150 Crew Cab short bed, with a 9" lift and some goodies inside. Well eventually I got bored from a lack of power and wanted a fresh start.



and moved on to this

Couldnt fit it into my shop so we had to let the air out of the front tires








the body damage was pretty extensive, with a lot of rust in the bed

It took a very long time to strip the entire truck.



All the air out of the front tire wasnt enough to hold the tire on the bead









Part two with a 2003 CBR 1000

I assume it's getting a '12 front end? Looks like a lot of work going into it, can't wait to see the finished product.

Always nice to be able to start over from the beginning as much as possible.

I don't think they are Bushwacker. Bushwacker pocket flares stick out real far at the bottom unlike whats on your truck that follow the body contour. I have been looking for something like what is on your truck but haven't been able to find them. Thats why I asked.

Began at 7am this morning by cutting off leaf springs



had a little patchwork to do



sanded frame with some 80 grit on a da, and shot a gloss black on it. Three very thick, heavy coats.



This truck wil never see leaf springs again



Primed helmet



Believe it or not this took me nine and a half hours just to do all that... Along with some other small things here and there. Hopefully can start selling off some of my old body panels, wheels, tires, and electronics, so I can start fabricating mounts for airbags and figure out where I can hide the compressor
