I've been on a search for an Isuzu pickup for quite some time, and finally found a 91 model, just down the street from me. I'll be picking it up on Friday, and cant wait to get started with the custom work. I'm going to buy a welder on Friday as well, and some fiberglass filler, and lots of sandpaper.
I've already got a cart saved at Grant Kustoms for a roll pan, license plate box, door popper kit, and door handle fillers. I'm now wondering though if I need to cancel the roll pan and license plate box, and replace it with a full skin instead. I planned on welding up the tailgate anyways, but need a new tailgate for the Pup, so the full skin may be the way for me to go. I just need to find out if the body line is stamped into the skin or not. I don't want it to be completely smooth.
Anyways, to simplify things, I'm trying to recreate a truck from my child hood. My best friend drove this truck for a few years, before totaling it in a pretty bad wreck. Here's a pic of what I'm planning for my pup, pretty much an exact recreation with the exception of the wheels.
Here's the wheels I'm planning on getting, and putting some 225/55/16 rubber on them. I'm not into the huge oversized wheels, especially since my car already has 17"s and last time I bought tires it was almost $800. Don't get me wrong, I like the look of them, but they're just not for me. Besides, I'd rather get the extra inch or two in static drop without having to notch anything.
