Picture-how-to

Start by going to the top of this page and click on [Home]
on the next page go to Picture Gallery and click on it. At the bottom of that page is a link called [upload a file]
click on it. You will have to use your login and password. You will get a screen that will allow you to creat a new album or add to an existing one, browse your computer to find the file you want to upload, be sure that the file you are uploading ends in (lower case) .jpg, and enter a description of the picture. Good luck.

Here's a link to one of my trucks. I'll figure out how to post a pic later. ;-)

REPUguru has all of the pics of my REPUs on his site. I've got some other pics I need to get him to scan, of the blue truck in it's younger days.

Ancient computer; friend w./ digi cam; much work to do--pix will come when able... Meantime, all you guys who looked at that green 'REPU on ebay', that's my latest...the photo's of it that were posted show it pretty nice...notice how it was sitting in the shade? That hid some of the rust top of the cab, etc. Eventually, I'll show you the pictures y'all should've seen...like the driver's side... meantime, not a bad REPU--but not as nice as it will be! Now if I can just get the paper straightened out...

Hey ScottyG, Your REPU is my goal! I love that look, white, black and chrome! I got 11 days left to get it looking like that!

Yes, white is nice--

--but I, for one, would ask you to reconsider, and keep a blue one blue. You can always do a white one, too--but since your motor's in, and stripping out the cab & re-doing it is a time consumer, why not spare the headache and make it less obviously two different colors? Sure, white is best for hiding any flaws, but I'm sure you're not gonna paint over anything undone anyway... White will show dirt immediately; blue is a "cool" color, psychologically speaking... And, I think blue will go over better with the crowds at sevenstock--just a guess on my part--if that matters to you at all. Then there's potential resale value down the road...
Of course, the best paintwork would involve pulling all the glass, and replacing all the weatherstripping... I've inquired as to the 'best' type of paint to go over the stock stuff with...it was suggested to me that a urethane such as 'Imron' would be good, and durable... What are your thoughts? (I'm gonna keep my green one green.) Oh yeah, keep that stock hood intact! You can always cut up a courier hood for the scoop! (It's only about the edge trim , right?)

Hey Klaus.... you think too much! haha.

Thanks, Tom. Mine was dark green, and was changed over to white before I got it. It's still green under the hood, it's no big deal.... mind over matter.... I don't mind, so it don't matter!

All seriousness aside: if it was a nice original truck, I wouldn't change the color. Mine was far from that before it was semi-restored, especially with a wrecked front end.

I know some people cringe at the thought of a non-original color change on such a rare vehicle, but really.... it's YOUR truck, so do what makes YOU happy.

Making mine original

Hey Klaus I respect the way you feel, but I feel that if you had a truck which was accquired in a not so good shape to begin with then its ok. My truck has also had a couple of impacts, they are not too noticeable behind some bodywork & bondo but they are there.

I would love to restore one of these trucks but I would also like to customize one of these, so for now I think I will go the later route. Maybe once I get some more space I could buy another one and make it totally original.

You're right!

--I DO think too much... It's just that the blue REPU in question did look relatively nice, un-bashed and un-bondoed.
Of course, to each his own. I'd like to do one of each myself--full stock resto./full custom rod... real world sez, every one of mine is neither...

Is un-bondoed a word?

Now that more than one of us has used it, come to think of it, it IS! Thanks, Scotty!
