Finished sanding and painting the bed pieces. Here the remaining pieces are waiting for paint.
I found a body shop that could get the truck in right away so we rolled to the shop with the bed in tow. Luckily didn't get stopped on the way to the shop since the MOG had no bumpers, lights, fenders, blinkers etc
At the shop. Glass removed and the doors fully disassembled.
Starting to sand/prep the cab for paint. Pretty much an empty shell at this point.
Skim coats over my welded repairs on the antenna mount holes.
First glimpse of color! I went with Toyota Quicksand for the color, it's a desert tan color with a hint of sage green. Here the bottom of the hood is fresh out of paint.
Inside of the doors are painted....prepping the outside.
Parts in the booth! Top side of the doors and hood painted.
Truck painted and clear coat being applied.
And out of the booth! I'm really liking this color, sooooo much better than the fire red Should look great with all the satin black bits bolted back on. Glass is going back in at this stage.
Direct sunlight the color looks a little lighter...lovin it!
Now on with assembly! More pics of that process on the way....
Haven't been posting a lot this summer but I've been driving the Mog quite a bit, such a blast! This morning my father, son and I took the mog out in the hills to roam around a bit. My buddy Mike followed us in his 4x4 converted ford van. While up in the hills the 4x4 portion of Mikes van decided to give out leaving him stuck at the base of a rocky climb, the winch on the Mog made quick work of retrieving the Van
Shoot the squirrel.... Keep the Mog. If you want to keep the Mog Utilitarian and not with a camper on back...... build you a camper on Mog wheels and tow it where ever you want. Or make it a slide in camper like an Alaskan that you can lift the top.
The drone is a Phantom 4 Pro, it's capable of heights and distance (Miles) well in excess of what is allowed. My still camera is an Olympus EM1, the above shots (non drone ones) were taken with a Oly 75mm F1.8 lens....that lens is magic!
