New Chopped Dakota project!

Sorry I’ve been away for a bit. The durango has just not needed much done I’ve gotten it to well run as a good daily driver.

But have no fear Crazypete is back with a project that has been brewing in his brain for a few years now. I give you the long bed 1988 Dakota:

It’s been sitting in the yard for a bit, ran when parked and needs a new front trans seal. but I’ve been wanting to make a custom truck, along the lines of what is depicted here in this clunky  paint-o-shop:

Mine wont be so low, will have a roll bar and rumble seat to take the kids cruisin’, and the rough cuts have already begun:

I’m thinking a glossy black with neon blue speed stripes down the middle. but that’s not for a while. I’m going to take my time and get the body right before I start painting things. So stay tuned for the next instalments and see how I tub the cab and bed together.
