New paint, new rugs, new rims and tires...
why couldn't they do a better job on the radio install?
Also don't like bedliner under the truck - personal preference.
Of course if you've read Aesop's Fables then you know what sour grapes means, lol.

Looks like they didn't even bother washing the dirt off before they painted the chassis. Seems like your typical quick fix resto job where they just focus on the body but leave everything else nasty.

If the engine was as clean as the outside I'd be drooling too. Call me crazy but I'd rather drive a dirty old rust bucket with an immaculate engine and drivetrain than vice versa. I wash my truck once a year in the spring just to get the salt off. I clean my engine probably once a week.

I think ive cleaned an engine once in my whole life. That was to degrease rusty #1 after valve cover gaskets.

I dont really care about oilyness. Keeps the frame from rusting.

When's the last time you cleaned your windshield?

You also smoke it out, and throw boots at it.

On the flipside I would rather work on powertrain stuff than bodywork.

Engine looks pretty clean to me, just needs cleaned up and painted if it is worthy.

Would have to be priced accordingly since IMO it is still a project vehicle.
