I have a problem where if I don't see some kind of large scale progress, sometimes I start feeling discouraged. So, my wife and I went and picked out paint together a couple weeks ago. Originally I was going to go with a light creamy color with black emblems, and running boards. The wifey just couldn't handle that and talked me into a fancy color. I'm calling it burnt orange. In bright light it looks more orange and in dimmer light it has reddish hues. I like it a lot. Painted the interior a metallic grey. I am still going with the black emblems and boards. I was going to do the cream color in hopes of it not showing quite all the body work imperfections, but oh well. It's gonna be a driver and will be getting dinged up anyway.

We have only 2 days of 70s weather left for this fall season. We are getting rain day after tomorrow and then it gets cold for as long as my weather app goes out. I wanted to get the cab painted so I would have it to work on during our winter. Can't wait to get it mounted back on the chassis.

Looks great, I know what you mean about getting the cab back on the chassis, I only have mine in primer but I did mount it and hope that I can paint it in place.

Well I managed to get the cab mounted a while back. Having a lift made it seem an easier task. I'm not very good at documenting all the steps but I haven't been spending a lot of time on it either

Had to do some fanagaling to get the carb linkage hooked up using the original gas pedal setup. Many beers and lots of staring at it helped

After reading lots of threads on insulation and what guys have been using I decided to use some peel and stick roof stuff for behind seat. I found 6x8 indoor/outdoor carpet at Lowes for 25 bucks, it went with the interior color great. Probably use it on the floor too
