Body: The body was media blasted and etch primed. Rust was removed and panels replaced to make this a solid body. The underside of the body was sprayed with black Raptor truck bed liner and the interior was sprayed with Raptor bedliner tinted to match the body color. The body was sprayed with 2015 Ford Sterling Metallic Gray paint.

Hydraulic hood struts were used to support the hood. The truck has been stored inside and shines just as much as the day it rolled out of the paint booth

I built this truck to be my forever Bronco but it's time to move on and start another project. Hundreds of pictures are available to document the work on this truck and I think the parts and custom touches speak for themselves. I am not interested in trades or help selling this. I live 10 minutes from Dulles airport and I am willing to work with your shipper or transporter.
