Default New turd pics!

well it being so nice and sunny here in MI today i decided the turd deserved a bath and a couple pics..These are my fav two of the many i took so here they are!





After having this truck on my hoist and seeing how surprisingly rust free the underside is ive decided its getting a new bed and cab corners and mounts fixed.Ive been DD'ing this truck sense we got it to see what its got and its been great so far so i think this one is a keeper And surprisingly for being an 88 with 199k the paint is in beautiful shape

That is in good shape for an 88. I was just gonna say, looks like the frame is flexing in the middle, but you already said something about the mounts.

ive always liked the 88-89 front the best, it looks mean. i painted the bumper black and got rid of all the chrome except the grill on my 89 made it look even meaner. are those firebird rims? thought the trucks had the 5 on 5 pattern.

that should look nice, cant beat the price either. from the side they looked like the deeper honeycomb wheels they had on the early 80'* firebirds
