    A lot of respect man! It’s not easy you showed us the flaws and you worked hard to perfect it! It’s the first rust project keep it up the more you put in the more you get out! And it really shows that extra time you can tell you’re much happier with it! I glad you kept on and didn’t let it be! Makes me appreciate this Chanel all the more!

    An air file would really help you out in the body work. Use a guide coat to test for highs and lows. You have to hammer down high spots brother. Use a yard stuck/ruler to check for straight. Body work sucks it is a lot of work but will worth it when you get it straight. You did good by using fiberglass first. The fiberglass base will keep it from cracking

  • mike

    Ryan your actually pretty funny. I actually enjoy watching you try to make your trashy truck into a bit more trashier truck. But hey atleast you see that and you willing to keep working on making it look better. Keep posting these vids, they're actually very interesting to watch to say the least.

  • ButtermilkL0veNugget

    I’m a believer that if you’re gonna do it, then do it right, especially when you’re learning because next time you do this you’ll have more experience and your labor time will be cut in half as you progress, keep up the good work, the more you learn the more you can do yourself and not have to waste money paying someone else to do it for you

  • smcox1991

    I would take the entire damn shopping cart if there aren’t any bags 😂 You needed a board/straight line sander to make short work of that sanding. At this point I would just monstaliner the entire thing. I’m pretty sure they have a green that matches your dodge.

    This is what guide coat is for. There where plenty of guys in the first video who went through major step by step on everything you should be doing. I dont say I told you so because that's for douchebags, and I dont get everything the first or second or even third time with some stuff. But could definitely use more research tho! You have to do the blocking, guide coat through different stages many many times. But forsure would just go for a used best next time. Also coloured choice be it pearl, metallic, one solid color like "sting grey" will all show the bodywork differently.

    OOOOOF No never ever use cardboard to mix you’re filler on and use a hammer and dolly to lower your high spots down till it’s flat and a way to cheat with body filler is use some glazing putty it’ll make it go on smoother and easier

  • toolmandcb2

    Glad you keep working on the learning curve....but doing well!! A good rule of thumb for working with any body panel is keep heat away...the bigger the panel the more you have to do that, whether it be welding,cutting,grinding or even sanding. You have to either move around a lot to different areas keeping heat to a minimum. Also when sanding down a body filler....use the longest sanding thing you have whether it be a block of wood with sandpaper wrapped around it or invest in a straightline sander. Keep up the good work....enjoying you builds!!

    Hit that primer with a guide coat. Sand it down and you will be able to see all your high and low spots. Guide coat = black spray paint..... Just dust it on and flat sand the bed with a block. You can then tap all the highs down and fill the lows. What me to come help?

    When you mentioned you might sell the truck or trade it in one day, I cringed. I enjoy your videos and think its really awesome that you're trying to do all the bodywork on your own, but it would be so wrong to sell that to an unsuspecting person knowing all of the mistakes you've made; and the amount of bondo on the truck. Maybe give it to someone when your ready to sell it. It's the right thing to do.

    • Iron Addicts Nation

      He didn’t know it was that rusted until he started digging into it. And assuming he told someone he sold it to or showed them the channel they could see all of what was done unlike every other sale. I would assume Ryan would do that for sure

    • Stormtrooper Jeep ZJ
      Stormtrooper Jeep ZJ

      @Iron Addicts Nation The difference is that he made a choice to still buy the truck knowing it was rusted out. There's nothing worse than paying a lot of money for a truck that you think is in good shape, then later find out that its got gallons of body filler on it. So when it starts cracking, you find out your truck is going to need thousands of dollars of bodywork. People do it, but it doesn't make it right.

    • Iron Addicts Nation
      Iron Addicts Nation

      A dealership sold him a rust bucket for like 5 grand. There are tons of people who would buy it with all the body work because it’s better than it was. He didn’t hide the rust he stopped it and got rid of it, cleaned the frame. He put more care and effort than anyone else would have. It’s an older truck. It would not be wrong to sell it at all.
