My plan is to fully restore my patrol, but i want to be able to drive it to work, fishing/hunting while I'm working on it. So it's going to be a long process. Here's a few pics, I picked it up in December.

The tank is cool! Any chance you have some in-progress pics of tank being built?

Uses 400, 800, 1000 and then 2000 grit sand paper. Polished it with toothpaste then buffed the heck out of it with a little wax. We'll see how it holds up

You know... I'd be really, really interested and thankful if someone were to put together a how-to guide on powder coating... Hint hint!
