    i love this guys videos he’s so underrated he deserves more recognition and subscribers


      I appreciate it! Thank you so so much!


    I love watching videos like this showing how to break down a vehicle and repair it almost OEM like Goonsquad, durtymax jack, and many others


    I was gonna restore my '94 chevy silverado suburban on my IRbin channel but unfortunately the motor and trans decided to go out at the same time so having to break it down and scrap it and get another vehicle


    if you have to take finders and hoods off anyways it's sometimes easier to paint them with them off so you can get both sides sanded down, then wet sand and put primer and cut in spray or edge spray so the paint sticks better then sand it down to get it smooth then put 3 coats paint and 2-3 coats clear then you can have the full panels and hood painted right and not have bland color then you have to blend it in with the rest of the trucks color by wet sanding

    Great job Ryan but remember DO NOT put your hand in front of a gas or oxygen bottle if you have any kind of grease or petroleum residual on them because it will ignite just a heads up . Just trying too keep you safe . See you in the next video

    While you have the hood and fenders off, now would be a good time to paint the back of them. Then put it back on and paint the whole cab. I’ve found out it’s easier that way.

  • Dallas Wyatt
    Dallas Wyatt

    Well, from what I’ve watched get done on my vehicles and in videos, I would say do the undersides off the truck and paint the outsides with it back on and mounted. That way you get an even coat everywhere. 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • Lowbubba

    A little late for this build, but I get a box of baggies, plus a marker, as you take bolts off, put in baggies and write on bag what and where. Then have a box to put baggies in.

    I know, it's easier said than done from my own life but have you thought of moving further south? Since Ohio is super fun in the winter time? Lol I KNOW you've at least considered it. Mmmm road brine and rust on expensive vehicles and the ridiculous cold.

    If you used that whole bottle of welding gas for just those two patches you have the flow set way to high. That bottle should last you a while

    • mthomp214

      RYAN MAYER what do you have your regulator set at for gas flow when you squeeze the trigger


      Yeah I’m confused myself haha

    I’m a Jeep girl and will never work on a Silverado, but I am thoroughly enjoying watching this build. Learning a lot about working on vehicles from your videos, they’ve helped me roll up my sleeves and work on my own Jeep. Thanks for the content! Can’t wait to see it all done. Maybe even a Jeep build one day 😜

    Like I said man, if you ever have an questions or concerns about paint, body or anything, feel free to hit me up on Twitter! @nick_larsh

  • N_Larsh14

    Itd be easier to do it all separate but you risk damage to paint and the color being off because of the pearls and metallics in the paint. What I would do is paint all the jambs and then put it all back together and spray the outside. There is jamb masking foam that gives a nice clean soft edge on the jambs that you can use to mask off the jambs before spraying the outside, don't want overspray and brand new paint

  • WD-Productions

    I like the build but you decided to fix a winter beater in the middle of winter and then say every time your in another vehicle this is what the Chevy is for. Should have done the build in the fall of this year and just ran it as is this winter

  • Blood Wrench

    The best finish would be to jam all the panels then reassemble then paint the outside in one shot. This way your pearl paint will be a lot more uniform.

    Your probably done by now, but usually you leave the doors on or at least put them back on to align the rockers and cab corners.

  • Jeromy Harris

    Get all the edges painted put it back together then paint it will come out more uniform like the fender won’t be darker then the door

  • Jerry Arruda
    Jerry Arruda

    Your gonna need to put the door back on when doing the rockers . It helps with lining up the gaps . Do your self a favor and just cut off what you need for the cab corners. No need to go all the way up. Paint the jams and put it all back together. Mask of the jams and paint .

    Me personally i like to shoot everything off the vehicle.. Makes body work a little less worse. Just remember mist the floor, hang everything but the hood up when shooting, whipe everything down with alcohol before shooting.. Looking good Ryan keep it up

    Quick tip on the bondo spreaders - leave a little on it kinda thick and once it’s pretty dry just bend spreader and the bondo should flake off in pretty much one big piece for easy clean up

  • Owen Pearson

    i’d paint it separate just because it’s less hassle if you have to paint the inside anyway might as well coat the whole thing, love the build man always look forward to your uploads

  • SergSkate661

    With completes I try to break them down in sections if possible to do as many of the part offs. Then the cab and door do the jams, then remount and spray outer doors and cab. Just be careful reassemble. With the autobody and paint trade everyone has different ways just up to you to make you own from everyone.

    16:04 Ryan realizing how in over his head he is. This is a piece of junk that should have never been restored. At least if it was a 2500 with 6.0 I can see the value, but not this.

  • PhatboyHD88

    Buddy id go to a scrap yard and just find a really clean cab and just switch cabs. But that is more work for sure BUT , you wont have to worry about rust coming back ,, but thats just me ..
