I decided to start off by test fitting everything on the truck first. Basically going to build it up without any seals or sealant just to make sure nothing that needs to be straightened, fixed or tack welded gets forgotten before painting. I figure the easiest way to do that is just bolt everything up first, that way i can also start accumulating any hardware or extra small parts, seals, etc. I end up needing before hand and even get some experience on assembling it. Then when it's all freshly painted it should be a much smoother assembly process the second time around.
I still haven't decided what path/color to take but GeneseeMtn's HMMWV build that he's got for sale now is really making me want to go CARC green. I really like the green/black combo on the ibistek bumper and the green main color with the black rhino lined interior looks real sharp too. For my truck it would be easy to swap the color out now. I could either get the top painted in carc or get it powdercoated with a CARC 383 matched powder.....hopefully seeing the truck prebuilt in person will help sway me one way or the other before i need to make that decision.
