In part 2 of my truck restoration video, I finish the repair and restoration of my 1985 flatbed Chevy truck. To finish off the restoration, I am going to change out the gas tank, finish up the body work and put it back together, and give it it’s final paint job. Throughout this truck restoration project I learned a lot about the process and hopefully you did as well - enjoy the restoration!
Thank you for watching! please put your body work tips in the comment section!!!
This video was shot entirely on a GoPro9

every single time I step outside and stretch my comfort zone ...to learn a new discipline or expand on some thing that I am learning ...blacksmithing, knife making, auto body work...it is the true professionals that are warm and encourage me to keep going and learning and provide useful constructive commentary....And it’s the amateur or the do nothings, wannabes with little to no experience.... that are most critical with intent to insult.

Just watching the paint exiting the nozzel i could tell it was too heavy, im sure you have lots of orange peel, hell its a truck right. Next one just be light on the old girl with this kind of paint your almost looking for heavy mist and definitely a second coat but it will be worth it. Good luck in the future my friend !

Body work is good and the paint work was good but to make it look really nice you would of had to wet sand the whole thing and buff it to get rid of the orange peel.

Man a lot can change in just a few years. I hope that one day I can be just a fraction of a maker as you. Keep doing you man. F*** the haters. P&L ♥️

What a great job. That truck looks terrific. 30 years old and some TLC keeps it looking good on the road. I have an ex-utility company 70 Chevy half ton step side. Had the original 292 six rebuilt, and it just keeps going. Happy with a 50 year-old pickup. Smiles from the West

Hi Jimmy, Not trying to critique your work, but you might want to investigate folding hoods. Several years of that generation truck had a problem with the hood springs seizing up and then the hood will crease when your closing it, at the second notch back (on the sides). I would hate to see you put that kinda time into it, for the hood to fold up on ya. I think it was something Chevy did to start incorporating some kind of crumple zone into the front end. Just something I wanted to make you aware of..if you weren't already. Though it looked like your hinges moved really freely.. PS, keep an eye on those hubcaps, people really like to walk away with those

Jimmy...great job . I have restored 2 old Chevy p/up. I’ve been told the reason for only one bolt hole on the tank bracket is that it’s a break away in case of a rear ended. The tank drops to avoid getting crushed and exploding. Don’t know if it’s true. **** I was disappointed to not see your insignia on the long board .:((
Diresta deluxe logo is much lower on the drivers side than the passenger side is, very disappointed Jimmy!
