Few updates. Doors have been stripped and primered. Tail gate mounted, Was going to make it removable like newer model tailgates but afraid it would be too easy for someone to steal.

Well, since you're on the last leg, any ideas on color yet? Maybe a factory 68 color with a little flake thrown in to give it more pop than 60's pastels?

Pulled this off of the innerwebs, use this site quite a bit for drawing old cars. Gives factory paint codes for year and make.

As of right now the plan is to paint it the same as my buggy with the body being red and the the roof, grill, and accents being charcoal and black bumpers

Re: 1968 Dodge D200 Tow rig/Daily driver Project *PICS Updated)

Tapatalk is acting up on me and will let me look at any thread except one i have started. As soon as it is fixed ill post a few pictures.
-All of the 4th gen factory seat belts are mounted front and rear
-Rear seat mounted
-Tail lights came in and mocking up for them
-Bed floor is being made. (local guy fell through after 2 months of waiting, new floor will be here in 3 weeks)
-This truck has some of the biggest Factory Booger welds that ive ever seen. Working on grinding those down and getting the inside cab and door openings ready for paint.
- Inside cab and door openings will get one more final coat of primer tomorrow and one more final sanding next week and will be ready to paint.
-Next week doors will go back on and will start the process of flat blocking and priming the outside 8-10 more times.

Still a long ways a way and Collision work has been crazy busy ( Thank the Good Lord Above) so not a ton of free time to work on it. Right now, working on it in between collisions. Mainly just a lot of sand paper and a lot of dust dealing with fixing all of the factory imperfections. Eventually just going to have to draw the line somewhere and live with it. I literally could work for a year fixing factory seams and welds to make them look nicer.
It is still moving forward which is the main thing for a project this size.

-Still have to relocate the batteries, transmission cooler, and AC condenser under the cab.
-Wiring for power windows/locks, headlights, marker lights, tail lights
-Bed Floor when it comes in
Once the body is ready for paint i will either have to find someone or figure out installing the Superduty front axle/steering and coilover suspension up front. Not a suspension guy but may can figure it out with a little help.

I had a metal floor custom stamped to go in the bed. It finally came in and starting fitting it in this week. Got all of the bracing welded in and now the floor is fitted and ready for welding hopefully next week.
A buddy of mine owns a Line X dealer so it will be getting Line X sprayed on the inside and bottom of the bed and inside the back of the fenders.
This is my last major fab part of the truck to be able to get started on final body work and get it ready for paint.
Fab wise I still have to build the front bumper, install the super duty front axle and coilovers, install power windows and door locks. Other than that it's going to be a lot of boring priming and flat blocking.... It's getting closer though

Turned out pretty good. Still have to box in the inner side of the bed

Yep. Ryan at accutune said he can set them up to work great on the truck. Will try anything to keep it from riding like a Dodge
