Anyone who remembers what Ige's 60 looked like in the rear end....
i.e. rusty wheel wells, huge dent in the passenger rear, painted hastily over with clearcoat to protect it from rusting and generally looking like it got heavily molested by a giant Spruce Tree, well I just had to post some pix of the resurrection...

A couple little runs here and there but all in all a good job
(better have been for $1920.00) But I think he matched the
color pretty good. He pulled the corner (amazing given that
the dent was like triple creased) had him paint the roof while
he was at it (faded and oxidized) the wheel well job turned
out really well, body guy classified it as "challenging"

very nice dude. I always though Ige's 60 was a really nice cruiser. It just needed exactly what you had done to it. :thumb:

Thanks, along with the new grill and headlight doors (that DONT look like black lava was heaped on) and the 35x12.5 MTR's on circle hole black steelies and a proffitt bumper to wrap it all up and she'll be good to go.

dang! that looks sweet!

wanna buy an 80 with minor front fender damage so you can fix it too :D this was a result of sliding too close to a bunch of rocks and, yup a tree :eek: so much for the last straight panel on the 80 :hill:

Stick a crowbar through the empty turm signal assembly hole (where did it go?) and pop it out. The kiss well still be there, but it wont look so bad.

You are a candidate for a full exo-cage if I've ever seen one!

Notice the custom paint on the grill/headlight doors, everywhere that was chrome is now cast iron grey and everywhere that was grey is now satin black, I think it looks pretty good (now that was some masking!)

That looks great! Way to go with restoring your new 60! Ige should be proud.

I always thought Ige's '60 would have looked sharper with that rear corner dent fixed. Looks great now! Thanks for posting the pix.

I love hearing about events in the Rig's past...
I'm sure it will look even better with dirt all over it.
I get the feeling it likes it rough too. (LOL):eek:

Although its name was "The Flying Brick"
I think it needs a new name, a female name.

I'm waiting for circumstances to reveal it to me.

Sandy is too easy...We'll see...
maybe name her Nina.

That was a stretch:rolleyes:

I remember someone saying that truck would never be built or wheeled hard!

Norwegian!

Very cool...."Ingred" deserves to live on! All of Ige's vehicles develop a soul and become more alive than mechanical! Nice work!
