Default Project Twisted Steal

i have had this truck several years and have always loved it. My 17 year old girl had a diabetic black out and rolled it. She is fine but the truck is a mess They say totaled i say Bull!
Most say i am crazy for trying but i know i can fix it not a doubt in my mind and i am fixing to show all the nay Sayers.
This is a 1996 Old's Bravada!
I have got a bit done.
1. stripped drivers side doors off
2. left front fender off
3. cleaned all broke glass out
4. right doors are fine but took off.
5. taking all trim off it will go back painted black
6. top is to come rest of the way off so i can open the post back up and re instal roof.

I like that idea, or removable top like a K5. Good luck.

Wow... I would have found a rig with a blown motor or something and swapped whatever good parts were left on this one over. That's a helluva project you have going there, good luck!

That looks like one hell of an accident but glad to hear she was ok. Looks like a lot of work but would be sweet if you can completely fix it.
