    I am changing the color of my seats and vinyl trim in my truck. I am going from a dirty gray to a sand color. I am thinking on a Western/Cowboy theme. The inside of my truck is gutted now, no seats, no trim, no carpet, and no head liner. All will be replaced or painted. That dog did a Job on the inside of that truck. I had to strip it to get the pee smell out. I hope to have it completed by the National Gathering. I hope to drive it to the Gathering.

Need any leather electric seats? come out of a luxury car, grey in color, I was gonna put them in my van, but changed my mind. If ya want them let me know.

    Well guys and gals, a B.O.C. Members gave me some leather seats for my truck. Isn't it great to have good friends!! Thank you Little Mac for the nice seats. These seats are power everything. They go up and down, back and forward, and I think they even recline.

    Top good luck on this project.I'll be sure and check the truck out at the gathering.I drove down to the gathering sight last week and there was about twenty campers still there. I believe the BOC can fill the camp ground this year.

    I got the dash painted, head liner covered. the cab painted with bedliner paint, and the first coat on the seats. I am out of paint and out of money! The truck project is on hold for a bit. Maybe after the Holidays, I will get started again.

    I got the headliner and visors back in the truck, I still must install the wooden trim on the headliner. I took the center jump seat out and made a wooden console to replace the seat. Still must purchase some paint to change the color of the trim that goes around the windows at the headliner!

    Glad to hear it VL, it won't be long and you'll be towing the boat in style! :big_smile: Altho I myself would be afraid to have reclining leather seats after a long day/night of fishing, might not make it out of the lot for a while!

    Well, It took all day long to install a new AM/FM radio with CD player because the old boy took the radio out just cut the wires. found the hot and ground right off but the speaker wires was a dog. As I found a speaker wire it could be the the Right rear but the radio chart said it should be the left frount. Took awhile to figure out but we did it.

    I was able to buy two cans of paint, I painted some more trim, I got most of the " Need to keep items" off of the old motor to put on the new motor. The old motor is almost ready to pull. I hope to have the New motor by next week. Now I must get the money to buy the gaskets that I need to put the new motor in the truck.
