    Nice!! We thought about turning this crew into a Zr2, we couldn't find a good donor frame though.

    Got the buffing mostly completed last night. It looks really good only a couple of spots that we need to run over one more time.

    Wow, you two aren't wasting any time. Looks great already. Going to be outstanding when it's all back together!

    Thanks! One thing for sure, the kid is not afraid to work. If I could only get him to leave his cellphone in the house while we are in the garage we would get more done. LOL

    Started putting everything back together today. Got inner door seals on, most of the window trim back on, outer door handles (except for passenger front which we found to be broken), and the bed is now bolted on.

    Trying to figure out what we are going to do with the wheels. For now we are keeping the original wheels just changing them up a bit.

    1st option red with polished lip and center:

    2nd option Black with Polished lip and center:

    3rd option Charcoal with polished lip and center:

    If the red is the same colorcas the truck, that my vote. One thing I might change up would be, just paint the spokes.

    Red would be the same color as the truck, im just not that good with photoshop. We thought about just painting the spokes, but not sure how we would isolate just the spokes and make it look right?

    I'd do them red, just the way you have them photoshopped. I think that's the only way to do it and make it look good. I was going to do the ones on my ZR2 black,(same color as truck) but I drive it in the winter, so with everything else on the "to do" list, I just started thinking about how much time it would take. Truck looks great, I like the stretch a lot, and IMHO, yours would definitely be worth the time to paint the wheels.

    charcoal it is ended up painting the centers and lips instead of polishing, we figured it would be easier and less maintenance plus we can always polish them later if we decide to:
