Weekend projects are always a lot of fun. The interior of our '65 Ford was pretty well worn when we purchased the truck after years of sitting in a field had taken its toll. We recently grabbed an LMC Truck catalog and made a list all the parts we needed. After compiling our list, we rang them up, and with one phone call we had everything thing we needed to bring our project truck up to speed and headed our way.
Upon arrival, we took our big box of parts over to Krusty's Kustoms in Azle, Texas, and had him hook us up. Before owner Rusty Stallings reinstalled the parts, he needed to the clean up the cab. Grabbing a grinder, he loaded up an 80-grit flap disc and proceeded to grind away all the rough spots as well as any rust. Now down to bare metal, he used some etch primer we purchased from a local automobile paint store to coat the floor and protect it from any further rust damage.
While we were at the paint store we had them color match our interior color and put it into a spray can for us (some paint suppliers are able to do this). This was extremely helpful and saved us a huge amount of time because the paint is ready to go. No mixing, no spray gun, and no dragging out the compressor, simply spray and go. Once the paint was dry, Rusty then grabbed the box of parts and began installing them.
Over the course of a weekend, our cab took on a whole new appearance. Now we are ready to ride in style.
