    Looking clean!
    How was the frame prepped?
    Media Blast?
    Just sanded/wire wheeled?

    Any plans to "late model" the front clip and interior?

    Frame was sanded and any surface rust removed and treated.

    This one is staying close to original, I have 5 Comanches in total only done the new from clip swap on one so far.

    Hoping for April or May, all I care is that the snow will be gone and the roads cleaned up

    It's staying stock, may have a small paint quality upgrade. I may lower it an inch or two later down the road and look into a newer bench seat with head rests,..

    Other than that keeping it stock until I change my mind

    Agee update pictures,.. Bumper has been straightened by a local shop, waiting on the brackets, and bed has been completely under coated









    Soon the top coat of "pearl white" which is what the VIN determined the OEM colour,... It's not a pearl paint OEM just called that.
