This Is What It Will Roughly Look Like When Im Done

I got this truck for some money owed, so you could say i payed $3,000 for a pos. That when im finished i could probaly get5-6k for it, so i guess since i have a lot of people and some auto knowledge myslef to finish it up, it was worth getting the truck than getting nothing at all.
